Ceremony at a Distance: A Learning Circle with Elder Gerry Oleman
Join us in circle as we sit with an Elder and discuss how to look after ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually during the COVID 19 pandemic. Gerry Oleman will guide us through how he is staying well as an Elder, and talk to us about how we can continue to practice ceremony despite needing to distance ourselves from many Elders and Knowledge Keepers.
