The workshops are presented by Linda Neil, CSJ. They use PowerPoint presentations to weave the art of Marion Honors, CSJ, music, poetry, story, sharing and science into an experience of deeper awareness of our place in the web of life. Each workshop can be expanded from two hours to a daylong presentation or weekend retreat. The programs can be woven together and used as a full week eco-spirituality experience.
