Please note:   All classwork is centred on the needs and the qualities of each specific group. Some work is required outside of class with a time commitment appropriate to the age level. For maximum benefit, both for the individual and the group, regular attendance is required. Our emphasis is on group awareness and co-operative action — not single stars, but galaxies, brightly shining.
