Richard Koral
Henryka Komanska presides

Traditions represent the distillation of the wisdom and practices of past generations, and they also can represent the creative practices of today. Traditions can be inspiring and they can be constraining. Wholesome and harmful. Enriching and enervating. Fulfilling and burdensome. We must re-examine and re-assess the old traditions we carry with us and generate new ones for today so as to cultivate a healthy future.
