Session 1: Entering into this Conversation Deeply

Primary Question: What is at the heart of creating a breakthrough in one’s own life?

Discerning and naming a particular new possibility, new opening, or a breakthrough you want to make for yourself in your life

Cultivating a longing for journeying across that particular threshold

Tapping into Silence, deepening our connection with nature and nature’s connection with us
