Fathers & Daughters Gathering June 3-5, 2011


The Yellow Brick Road:

A Journey of Discovery

Yellow-Brick-RoadKristin & Michael Kauffman would like to invite you to the 2011 NMMW Fathers and Daughters Gathering, which will take place at Ghost Ranch over the weekend of June 3 thru 5.


scarecrowWe follow the yellow brick road with our father or daughter to a place of discovery. We will explore our own experiencestinman as they relate to symbols and key characters from the imaginative world of The Wizard of Oz. We begin with the Scarecrow who did not have a brain and discuss a time that required a lot of thought; maybe it was difficult to discern the right path. We will visit the Tin Man with no heart; paralyzed and stuck. Last, we lionmeet the Cowardly Lion and reflect on a time when we ourselves needed courage. This familiar story provides a foundation to begin a dialogue with our father or daughter as we continue on this path of life.


Click your heels and join us in the beautiful landscape of Ghost Ranch near Abiquiu, New Mexico. This tranquil environment provides a wonderful space to explore, MT-FD2008-7share stories, hike, and most importantly spend quality time with your father or daughter.
