Our ecological crises require cosmological solutions. — Juniper Stokes

Like any trauma — and like so much of our modern lives in general — ecological trauma often leaves us depleted and exhausted. Our work is to alchemize this pain and grief into usable energy. 

In this workshop, we’ll take a shamanic approach to recovering from ecological trauma. This approach is rooted in two fundamental principles:

First, as much as we might resist connecting with what we perceive to be the pain of the Earth, deepening our connection with the natural world is our path to healing.

Second, as much as we might perceive humanity as bearing the burden for the fate of the world, we are not alone in our efforts.

When we embrace a cosmological shift to animist perspectives, we recognize that the Earth and all her inhabitants are inspirited — and as such, they have agency to affect the fate of the planet, just as humans do. Listening to and partnering with these nature beings is essential if we hope to enact any change within ourselves and our world.

In this workshop, we’ll engage in practices to deepen our relationship with the Earth as an ally for healing and change. Join us to explore:

🍃 Ecological trauma — it is far more layered, complex, and pervasive than most of us realize

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

🍃 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

As we partner with our bodies, with Earth, and with spirit, we can begin to co-create a wildly wonderful world.
