The Summer Solstice is a time to pause and take stock: what will we nurture and harvest and what shall go into the compost?

The combination of creative and reflective writing, meditation and Buddhist teachings will give the opportunity to refresh ourselves, re-evaluate and re-commit to our truest values and to celebrate life in all its wonder and complexity.
