From: Grounded in ancient times when our ancestors lived closed to the land honoring the Divine Feminine, Roots & Trails offers dynamic, curiosity-centered, ecological education & mentoring; rooted in honoring the enduring Abenaki Original Peoples of this land, they call Ndakinna, while we investigate and share diverse practices across the Jewish spectrum from exodus wilderness to kabbalistic to hasidic through renewal in the modern diaspora. In acknowledging the displacement of peoples from their homelands, participants are invited to consciously explore, experiment, relax into, and be empowered to support justice, healing, reclamation, and peace momentum in the world through these portals into interfaith networks.
How: Roots and Trails supports individuals, families & organizations in Jewish, interfaith multi - generational rituals, ceremonies, rites of passage processes, retreats, workshops, and collaborative projects that contribute to an evolving network of cocreative biocentric culture rehabilitation. Nurturing these core relationships allows ancestral roots of all traditions to engage together in the medicine work of equality and balance.
