By Steve Cairns



Held on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at Nipissing University (Muskoka Campus) in Bracebridge beginning at 7:00 pm. Admission was by donation.




The water cycle illustrates patterns in life and lakes and rivers provide ancient metaphors for living. Steve Cairns will discuss moving through WATER as a means of personal and group exploration and balancing risk with unintended consequences.
