The Saskatoon Community of Mindful Living
Celebrating Connection, May 10-13, 2012

The quality of our personal, social, and spiritual lives is the quality of our awareness of connection. Spiritual practice is about opening to connectedness, with ourselves, others, nature, the ultimate. It's there. Lets touch it. Let's celebrate it.
