Emerging from the first four days of our learning together, I feel the earth has shifted off its axis a bit, and all for the good. I feel a connection to the ancestors I never knew or heard tell about. I see the filigree web holding us, the village, together. I hear the birds and the wind in sharp new ways of remembrance. I am altered irrevocably by the gift of Steve’s teaching, his words, his music, his care and his passion for this process of life leading to the ultimate gift of our death. Thanks to you, Steve and Nathalie, for sharing yourselves and your ways with us. I miss you and I so look forward to seeing you again in July at The Orphan Wisdom School.
