Workshop: There is a Navaho saying, “to name something is to become”. It speaks of a longing and the possibility for each of us to be fully who we are. It speaks of a relationship to creation and to creator. It speaks of the need to be remembered in a very deep and mysterious way.
Together we will explore naming though dialoguing with a variety of texts, journaling, use of myth and fairy tale, movement and ritual.
