Project Manager’s report: Gaia was active in the summer and in the early fall – hosting two general groups of people; seniors and families with children. Some were repeat visitors from the previous years. GAIA retreat connects to the wilderness – an amazing habitat opening into the nature and the discovery of self. The spirit was of adventure and exploration. I was their host and guide, introducing them to the old knowledge, which is shamanic in nature – the art of restoration, transformation, and renewal – in this sequence. It was good.
