🌾 Connecting with the Living Land 2020 🍂 I am joyfully teaming up with my dear friend & plant whisperer Jenny of @muddyriverherbals to offer a special sort of gathering. Starting in April we will be facilitating a 7 month plant journey on her gorgeous & lovingly tended herb farm. We’ll grow, gather, brew, taste, dig, walk, and spend our days entirely outside. We’ll connect with each other, with the land, and with our own hearts. Please read on if you feel called to join us on this adventure... #connectingwiththelivingland We invite you to join us on a journey into the plant world. Throughout our seven months together we will deepen our relationship with the forests, fields, and gardens of New England by learning their rhythms and remembering how we fit into them. Our time will be spent among the soil, where we will learn how to work with wild plants and tend to the earth by sowing, planting, weeding, and harvesting. We will honor the plants we work with by transforming them into medicine and handicraft. Our spirits--and the spirit of nature--will be acknowledged in each gathering through practices of meditation, journaling, reflection, and offerings of gratitude to the land. We will discover that as we share our hearts with the plants and one another we will recover our sense of kinship, belonging, and interconnectedness to all of life. Together we will remember our deep connection to plant medicine, to one another, and to the Earth that sustains us all. ✨Registration link can be found in profile or at @muddyriverherbals ✨
The beauty of the earth is a reflection of Divine Harmony, and a reflection of the Beauty & Divinity of your own soul. The Earth is beautiful because She is alive — her landscapes are living and spirited. But in some places the spirit has diminished, just as in some humans the spirit has diminished. How do we support the Earth in bringing back her full spirit to all landscapes?... The Earth listens and breathes — not as you do, but in her own way. She can hear the human heart and respond to your communications and emotions. You can speak with the landscape—or a certain focal point in nature—from your heart and the message will be heard by the whole. Send messages of thanks and gratitude for all the gifts of the Earth. Send appreciation for her beauty and nurturance. Send her messages everyday, while gazing at the sky, or a tree, or a stone. Any small part of nature will hear your heart’s message and share it with the surrounding landscape. 🌙⛰🐚🍂🐿 #gaia
May the return of the sun and the growing light of the day bring blessings to all beings, and to this beautiful Earth. Happy Solstice ✨
We’ll brew our next full moon tea tomorrow evening, 11/11. The moon newsletter will go out later today with further details and our monthly focus... To join us follow the link in my profile 💫🌕 💫#moonteacircle
🍂 Samhain Blessings to you all 🍂 Today we honor the end of a yearly cycle and the return to the underworld. Today we remember the ancestors and all who have come before us. May the growing darkness bring us insight, healing and a return to our core.
Sending many thanks and gratitude to the special land at @ifarmboxford for holding our class, Connecting with the Living Land, these past seven months. And thank you to all the amazing, strong, inspiring women who joined me on this journey. I’m so grateful to do this sort of work, and to share a kindred love of the earth. Together we grew and changed along with the seasons, supported by the wisdom of the plants, flower essences, meditation, and time with one another. With the turning of the seasons our time together has ended — may we all be nourished and nurtured by the beauty and introspection of fall. 🍂✨ #connectingwiththelivingland
