In this 6-week book study, we will explore the forest communities of Wohlleben’s book and bring in local experts to expand our knowledge of forests here in WNC. Sponsored by the Earth Team

Lost & Found …A highly interactive 9-week workshop
…Begins Monday, March 18, 6—8 pm
Sometimes in life, something falls apart and we lose our way, leaving us empty and without direction. This is usually the catalyst to walking away from what is no longer serving us and moving towards rebuilding our lives with new meaning. These are the stories that come alive in Lost and Found, a highly interactive 9-week workshop that begins Monday, March 18. Through personal and collective exploration, improvisation and writing, participants will co-create an interweaving of stories and movements about getting lost and finding their way back. At the end of 9 weeks, participants will present a collectively-designed community performance to be performed on Sunday, May 19, 2019. To register go to www.eventbrite.com/e/story-choreography-projects-lost-and-found-tickets-54627183376?aff=ebdssbdestsearch.
