Sacred Dance Weekend: Celebrating Harvest – Fruits of the Earth and Spirit

6 September 2019 at 4:00 pm - 8 September 2019 at 2:30 pm

Harvest is a joyous time recouping the rewards of our labour.  Much preparation goes into the soil – sowing and care of crops during growth – before the harvest can be reaped.  So it is with our own lives during the growth and development of our spirit.
