Celebrating Seasonal Festivals

We are delighted to offer a series of four workshops to enlighten and deepen your own relationship to the festivals of the year. Included in all four sessions are singing, movement and games, food preparation (and eating!), discussion and handwork of all kinds. The overall content may be different from what has been taught in the full year LifeWays Trainings so see it as an opportunity to learn many new things!

These workshops are offered as a series of four sessions at $350.00 per person with lunch and all supplies included. There are no refunds for dates you cannot attend but you are welcome to find someone to take your place or share the cost. Enrollment is limited!
