I so appreciated being able to participate in rich adult activities and in-depth discussions, while my child was given the chance to sing and play with children in an environment that nurtured her soul and provided beautiful role models.

For five years I have been longing for a way to be in deeper relationship with the land and bioregion where I live. The Art of Mentoring was a sea-change for me. I am now committed to a way of life that supports my desire, and I have tools, resources, teachers, mentors, elders, and friends to do it with! Thank you VWS.

This program is food for life for my daughter… she relaxes, she sleeps better, and she is eager for more everyday. Thank you VWS.

I can’t express more how much this weekend meant to me. The storytime, the books, the skulls, the tracking, the laughter…everything was superb. You are great!! Thanks!

A powerful workshop indeed… It was a wonderful experience that is just the beginning of a much longer journey toward social justice. Thank you for hosting this.
