Sacred Connection: Exploring Our Interconnectedness with the Earth

August 10 @ 9:00 am - August 11 @ 6:00 pm


Saturday, August 10th: 9-6pm
Sunday, August 11th: 9-6pm

The Earth is a sacred being. She reminds us that we are part of one ecosystem, of life sustaining life. Many of us experience the historical and cultural norms of cultures of domination that create separation and disconnection and reinforce a strong sense of individual identity. We often lose the sense of belonging to and with the Earth. Awakening to animate the sacredness of the Earth to move through us is a way to deepen our interconnectedness and knowing of this belonging.

In this course, we will explore through deepening our presence in meditation practice, practices of Earth dreaming and Terrapsychology, ceremony/ritual and connection to the mystery, Earth art, and deep ecology. These Earth-honoring practices for enriching our relationship with ourselves, one another, and the Earth will remind us of our deep connectedness. We will activate the sacred animacy of the Earth to move through us, to bring this into greater consciousness. We will examine the ways that we are disconnected and blocked. We will identify and practice releasing resistance and barriers to this divine truth that we are part of all life as we open embodied pathways allowing the transformative and healing qualities of life to move through us. We will explore these mutual, life-giving practices of connectedness as acts of regenerative remembrance.

During the course, you will have the opportunity to develop and deepen your personal relationship with the sacred aliveness of the Earth and learn to bring this alive into the ecotherapy work you plan to share with your clients.
