The theme for this year is Reclaiming The Sacred
What do we mean by this? The sacred is not some place or some thing . It’s all around us. It’s everywhere and in everything. It’s the very essence of life. It’s that sense of awe, reverence, wonder and connection with the Earth that you carried within you as a child and it still lives within you today. It’s that place of deep knowing and living as if everything is connected, because it is, and we are nature too.
