Includes tea and coffee. Vicki speaks about her new book 'Beauty In The Beast - Facing our Collective Shadow' and shares the songs that accompany the journey with her harp. This is a pilgrimage into the ancient Greek labyrinth, which was originally built to imprison the Minotaur. Once the beast had been slain, the early Christians turned this into a walking meditation. Vicki Burke uses this device to reflect on our departure from the Garden of Eden and the conflicts that have shaped our society today. Narrating her story, as a Jew and a creative, she uncovers the collective trauma which leads her on a journey of reconciliation.
