§  Medicine Wheel and other Ancient Ceremonies and Protocols that invite humanity back to The Sacred Circle – back to do, as our ancestors once did, to join together in prayer and Celebration.  We will remember the times in history when our Ancestors lived in peace and harmony with the Earth and with Each Other –We will invoke those times when all voices, all people, all life, and especially Love, mattered above all else.

Telling the New/Ancient Story
Outreach and Edu-tainment through Transmedia  

From Wikipedia: “Transmedia Storytelling - is the technique of telling a single story or story experience across multiple platforms and formats using current digital technologies.”

Using Storytelling, Music, the Arts, New Media (a Transmedia approach), The Return will encourage individuals, businesses, groups and communities to develop a positive vision of their future.  They will also be given the practical tools, resources, and training to implement those visions in their lives and their communities.

Utilizing an improvisational, interactive musical theater Piece, titled, The Shift, as a stepping off point, a troupe of performers, trained in theater, sound healing, movement, and various ancient and sacred performance art and healing techniques, will perform an ongoing, evolving story that inspires a positive vision of the future and illustrates the awakening process.

The story of The Shift illustrates what happens when people resist change, awakening and spiritual growth.  The Plot and Characters mirror what is happening in the real world. The Shift will be an evolving and ongoing record and expression of real world people, events and developments.

Caravan – “Chautauqua” Style

Return to Love Caravan will travel, "Chautauqua" style with Educators, Indigenous Elders and Wisdom Keepers, Life Coaches, Musicians, Activists, Artists, etc., 

Eco-nomic Training Programs will be offered by WH1, American Global, YK Center, and Earth Wisdom Foundation, bringing individuals, organizations, businesses and communities into a profound, “Journey of Self Discovery.” 


The Tour

Return to Love - The Tour will follow in the tradition of a Chautauqua, a popular Adult Education Movement from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.  Chautauqua brought popular preachers, politicians, and performers of the day, the latest in health care options, and adult education opportunities, to rural communities.

The Chautauqua movement was so successful that former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt said that Chautauqua is "The most American thing in America."
