Google quotations about “truth” ” you will find more than half a million, all of which contain words of amazing wisdom. Some of the most common themes are truth is avoided, skipped over, danced around, hidden shamefully, hidden skillfully, awkwardly, openly, tripped over, ignored, outlawed, punished, slaughtered, diced and sliced, attacked, smacked and essentially an elusive commodity…what is that about?

Geraldine Evans is your facilitator and promises to offer laughter, poetry, prose and an exploration into the possibility of living a more integral life.

Evans spent the last eight years on a personal journey of discovery which has taken her to Ashland, Ireland, England, Germany, Iona, Sedona, Canada, California, New York and workshops in Australia. Call 550-8981 for information. Donations will be gratefully accepted.
