We will dedicate this class to explore how we move through events in our lives to discover if they follow some kind of pattern. Specifically, we will look into cycles of time that have beginnings, middles and endings; we will explore how we come together and how we go apart; how we make transitions from one place to the other and will try to find out if there are repetitions or similarities in how we do this. We will explore how our sequencing might be connected to our birth and early stories
