As we make our way closer to spring equinox, I hear the plants calling, remember the smell of moist earth, teeming with life and the feeling of the warm sun on my skin. It evokes such a feeling of joy and aliveness.
Each year as I take note of the seasonal shifts and changes, I open up to the invitation of spring, to grow, expand, to step in, to become conscious of what I didn't know I knew, become more of who I am and offer that out in the world. I give thanks to the depth process and work of the winter that shifted inner parts of me like tectonic plates, sometimes leaving me feeling like my heart might beat out of my chest (being with what is raw and tender and what is emerging inside of me and in our world), ultimately creating more space for new seeds to grow.
For me, one of those new seeds is the Embodied Connections program and I'm so excited to share that registration is now open.
What I've learned over the past 7 years of growing food and integrating ritual and mindful practice, is that there are beautiful metaphors and teachings that present themselves when working intimately with the earth and they meet you exactly where you are. It feels like a healing balm to be met by the magic of the garden or farm in that way, to open to the wisdom of the plants and feel them open to you, to feel the gravity of the body in relationship to the gravity of the earth, to feel your inherent gifts, value and worthiness in relationship to that of the earth, to feel your heart in relationship to the heart of the earth and to gather and be with other beating hearts in the garden, reconnecting through ritual.
From this comes the invitation to the program...
- Plant seeds & intentions in the body of the earth and earth of your body
- Discover food as ritual, plants as medicine, and the Earth as your teacher
- Awaken your joy, pleasure, and vitality through the healing power of connecting to sacred Earth
- Harvest the bounty from the garden for the nourishment of the body, mind and soul
- Experience the magic and the metaphor available in the garden
An amazing team of collaborators is coming together and we're so looking forward to offering this over 3 modules (Spring, Summer, Autumn).
