* The Power of the Slowing is a phrase used by Gerald G. May in his book The Wisdom of Wilderness

** Ghost Ranch in Abiquiú, NM was chosen because of its stunning red canyons, majestic mesas and amazing skies. This beautiful land is strongly conducive to the work we will be doing, just as it was such an inspiration to the paintings of artist Georgia O’Keefe.
