Apprenticing to the Wild, Multi-Form Sentience of Earth
We have a variety of offerings which include workshops, immersions retreats, study groups, pre and post ceremonial consultation, and one-on-one treatments that involve bodywork, somatic therapies, guided introspection and various other approaches and modalities.
THE EMBODIMENT CONFERENCE
We are delighted to be part of The Embodiment Conference. It will be a rich opportunity to come home to your body, in our chaotic world. Many of the planet’s best teachers will be there, and it costs nothing to be a part of. It’s free to all, online, and boasts keynote speakers such as Charles Eisenstein, Philip Shepherd, Judith Blackstone, David Abram, Bayo Akamolofe and many more.
Yoga, leadership, dance, creativity, social change, intimacy, martial arts, meditation, breathwork, coaching, body therapy, anatomy, ecology and trauma are all represented! The event is unique in size, but also in how they will help you find what you’ll most love, and connect to others, using some clever new technology.
At the conference you can:
– learn about new areas of the field (they have it covered!)
– gain deep personal insights
– deepen your professional expertise
– gain dozens of practical tools for stress and trauma
– get inspired and reboot your own practice
– connect with people across the globe for support and encouragement
We live in challenging and deeply uncertain times, where the words ‘climate emergency’ and ‘sixth mass extinction’ have hit the mainstream, and predictions of near-term social, economic and environmental collapse cause great concern for a growing number of people of all ages. The sickness of our culture has become hard to deny, and many of us feel alone as we hold within us the weight of the world.
So many of us are also expressing a longing to come into deeper connection with each other, to live meaningful lives and to feel ourselves returned to the circle of belonging within the wider Earth community. There is also a growing desire to participate in a collective shift towards a regenerative and sustainable culture, what Joanna Macy calls, The Great Turning.
In this body of work, we see the root cause of these converging crises to be the pervasive illusion of separation between humans and the rest of the natural world. By learning to recognize our inter-connectedness we invite the spontaneous healing of the psyche and by extension, of the systems that were born from the deep split within us. We also come to understand the inseparability of personal, cultural, and ecological healing.
Engaging the transformative power of communal ritual, process, dialogue, poetry and music- we will create a foundation of radical gratitude, to honour and transmute the grief we are carrying for the Earth and our global family, explore new ways of seeing these difficult times, and seek meaningful ways to respond.
There are many hard things to face in our world today, but our pain is a sign that we are fully alive and connected to the web of life. If we want to contribute to a better world we must be willing to acknowledge and metabolize our fears and sorrows into inspiration, strength, and deeper purpose. Only then can we bring forward our unique gifts and shine a light into this dark night of the soul of humanity.
