Embodying our Connection to the Earth
May 8, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT$30
Online with Sue ~~
Saturday, May 8: 9 – 11am
This will be a time for exploring our connection to the earth, for some, increasingly a very real presence in our lives, including a growing element in our spiritual journey.
Our connection to her can be elusive, for any of a number of reasons. For some of us, being grounded and appreciative of our body and its wisdom is a relatively new experience. Its place, and through it our connection to the earth, is slowly being revealed. This contrasts with some spiritual teachings and with the dominant paradigm in the west, where we have been taught to see the earth purely in economic and extractive terms, not as part of a mutual caring and nurturing relationship.
As well, as we step more consciously into this relationship, we can fear her power and the enormity of the experience of being open to her. Much like when we open to the night sky, we can feel small and vulnerable. Opening to the natural world can be similarly overwhelming or intense – and as full of awe as any other profound spiritual experience.
My hope is that this will be the beginning of a series of offerings that, when possible, will happen in person, here on the land over a day or two.
Cost: $30 (or pay what you can)
Any workshops being held at Strong Hollow have a suggested cost, but are offered as “pay what you can”. We do not want cost to be a reason to not attend.
