Celebrate Summer: Body/Earth Nature Connection Retreat

Please join Stacey Hinden and myself in what promises to be a beautiful and deeply rich one-day retreat!

Gather with other women in a sacred circle as we open our senses to the delights of the land, source our body’s wisdom, and awaken our ancient relationship with plant intelligence. With the land overflowing in summer’s abundance, we’ll enjoy a truly nourishing experience, in which we cultivate deeper joy, harmony, and well-being for ourselves and with the Earth.

Body Intelligence. Learn a somatic movement practice to experience your body from the inside out. Enliven conscious connection with sensation and begin to weave the living wisdom of your cells with the intelligence of life around you. Experience a sense of peace and well-being in the present moment.
Plant Intelligence. Engage with Rose, Yarrow, and other plants in the fullness of their life cycle with all your senses activated. Learn to attune to the green beings and interpret their “language.” Discover what these plant allies reveal about your timeless connection to your inner self and the landscape.
Plant Craft. Learn a protocol and practice for engaging with a plant and their essential nature to create a vibrant and more potent food and medicine. Harvest a plant for making a plant spirit extract, and co-create with the plants as our imagination and the season suggests.
Solo Time in Nature. Cultivate a simple practice for “being” in nature, with all your senses activated.
Ceremony, Story, and Song. Create sacred circle and enliven your authentic voice through nature-based story and song.

Wow! Check out this emerging science on Plant Intelligence

So cool:

This on pri.org – Science Friday.

New research on plant intelligence may forever change how you think about plants

The mp3 interview with Michael Pollan (who wrote The Botany Of Desire, and who wrote an article published in The New Yorker called “How Smart Are Plants”) is pretty cool.

There’s an astounding video about 3/4 down the web page. It’s only a few minutes long. WOW!

Watch it: I can almost guarantee that you’ll never experience plants the same way again.

Check out the video (at a minimum!) and please post your thoughts. I’ll blog my own thoughts about this topic in my next post.
