Yesterday I participated in a restorative circle for the first time . It was an honour. It deeply moved me and cracked the foundations of what I have been trained to believe and stand for . There was so much learning . Afterward with the rawness and exhaustion of my body and heart I just wanted to crawl in to the safety of nature and be whole again which I did. Today I plan to get lost in to the ancient forest that our relatives keep and listen to the songs of the forest. #beautifulbc #ancientforest #firstbath #restorativecircles #indigenousknowledge #betterways #conflictresolution #naturelovers #songoftheforest #botanicalartist #artistinresidence #yyclcl #bc ...
