Gaia Farmhouse Retreat, by Kira

Today our homeschool group visited the Gaia Farmhouse Retreat.
We started off gathering in a circle among tall coniferous trees.
Carol Kilby led with a story of the Big Bang.
We sang and played instruments.
The kids had a chance to act out the story with Carol and then draw pictures of their favourite part.
After the story telling we were taken through the Cosmic Labyrinth.
There are 34 stations that tell the of the creation of the universe.
We walked 14 billion years back into the spiral,
reaching the Origin at the centre and then back to out to the present.
The kids and I had a great time.
It was a very warm and welcoming visit with Carol.
I would like to take the kids back again.

Thank you Carol Kilby and Paul Irwin for welcoming us to your retreat.
