We know the Spirit to be active with professionals and family or friends who are caregivers, so this weekend is for you to be in touch with that Spirit. We will explore the deep personal issues which touch your experience. Through input, quiet reflection, sharing, ritual, and massage, we will discover ways to remain open to the Spirit, reclaim inner strength and receive care..
