We are amidst great change.

These times are challenging, scary, and full of a range of emotions. We are living in uncertainty. 

 

And yet within this, there's actually so much creative possibility for systems, both collective and individual, to make radial shifts.

When we are forced to confront our unsustainable, disconnected, and often harmful ways of living,

we are invited to choose:

stay the same course or align more fully with what feels authentic, connective and meaningful.

What nourishes the Earth actually nourishes you. We have an opening here to find this alignment again.

This weekly call will provide helpful tools in navigating these uncertain times with the balm of CONNECTION, first and foremost to ourselves and to our place on the Earth.

We will learn how to form a basis of anchoring in the present moment, to our bodies and the wisdom of the Earth.

 

We will sow the seeds for a ripe sense of the meaning and belonging that we're all searching for right now.

 

The Gateways we will be exploring are:

 

 Presence & Reverence (4/1)

The Body (4/8)

Plants and Stones (4/15)

Nature (4/22)

Ritual & Ceremony (4/29)

See below for a detailed description of each class.

WHY is this Important?

 

I truly believe that being in a disconnected state is the biggest threat to the health of our world.

 

When we do the work to align ourselves with our truest nature, we organically want what is best for our bodies and our world.

 

We find a sense of belonging and reverence, and with this comes a fierce desire to protect what we love.

 

We begin to live integratedly, harmoniously, and honorably.

Below is an excerpt from herbalist Sean Donahue. He is speaking historically of how humans became disconnected from the rhythms of nature and our sustainable place on the Earth. It speaks to why this work of connection is so crucial:

"With disconnection came alienation, and with alienation came unassuageable hunger and insatiable lust that rip and tear at the fabric of being. The road appears broad and easy because all sense of limitation is lost, it appears to lead to heaven because its the path of following unchecked desire, but it leads further and further from the source of being and life that offers the only true fulfillment of those desires.

 

Rather than bringing satiety, this path that disconnects us from the heart, brings agitation that can grow into panic as people desperately seek pleasure to take the edge off their feeling of emptiness, and as each moment of pleasure fades find themselves feeling the emptiness more acutely, more frantically seeking to stave off the gnawing feeling inside them."

I am passionate about helping you find connection again with your homes - your body and the Earth. 

 

I want to help you feel safe enough in your body to touch upon your own medicine for the world. Safe enough to trust yourself, to deeply care for yourself, and to make choices in life that feed a sense of meaning and connection, not sever it.

​I want to help you feel calmer, more alive, more rooted, and more integrated.

This course will empower you with tools and resources to find HOME once again in your body and the Earth.

 

This course will help you to simply yet effectively create the connected and meaningful life you desire.

We will learn to open ourselves up to communicate with plants, and talk about specific plants and stones that are helpful allies for these times.
