Our ecological crises require cosmological solutions

Those of us who deeply love our Earth often feel pain in response to the immense trauma humans have inflicted upon the planet and her inhabitants. We feel grief at the harm done to the Earth, the animals, the plants, waters, mountains, and more at the will of humans. We feel rage at all the ways our current environmental crises could have been prevented, at how many obstacles we still face to get even the most basic protections in place. We feel guilt for being part of the human species, for having to live in ways that cause more harm simply by existing within our society. We feel pain as empaths whose energy bodies do not separate the Earth’s experiences from our own. We feel numb because continuing to stay open and aware can be too much for our hearts to bear. 

These are strong emotions. And as difficult as it is to feel this much grief, rage, guilt, and pain, there is power in these feelings. Emotions are charged with energy — and all energy is usable energy. 

The question becomes: How will you alchemize your grief into hope? Your rage into healing? 

In this workshop, we’ll engage in a guided practice to transmute our grief into healing alchemy. You’ll learn how to directly communicate with the soul of the Earth in order to foster deeper connection, re-wild your spirit, and receive transmissions of personal guidance from the natural world. 

Join us to explore

🍃 Co-regulation with the natural world — how we can tend the feelings of guilt, shame, frustration, and anger that arise in response to environmental trauma 

🍃 The sacred art of reciprocity — why receiving and giving blessings in partnership with nature heals us all 

🍃 How the earth perceives you — and what she most wants you to know about your unique path of service moving forward 

🍃 Cultivating hope — a guided practice for attuning to the unconditional life force and love of our cosmic earth as we dream a new world into being 

When we engage with the world around us from animist perspectives, we embrace the inherent life, spirit, and consciousness in all beings — including the spirit of the Earth herself.
