Finding the Fertile Ground

Opening to the “natural world” within and around us as one
Come discover what shifts and transforms when we deepen our relationship with the natural world

Event Details

Date: Saturday, October 29th, 2016
Time: 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM
Notes: Participants should expect to spend the day outside in the mountains and be prepared for some moderate hiking (4-5 miles), experiential exercises, “solo time” in nature, and reflective time with another and the group.

What if opening to our innate belonging and oneness with the natural world is fertile ground, capable of carrying us into a flourishing future? The ‘edge effect,’ from the science of ecology, refers to the richness of interaction that occurs at the boundaries of ecosystems . What if we explored ourselves as ecosystems?

In this day-long workshop we will:

Step across the “edge of forest as object” and practice direct encounters with presence and somatic awareness

Explore what it might mean to think and act as if we were a whole, balanced ecosystem and could listen and act from a deep primal relational intelligence

Learn practices that help us connect with instinctual wisdom mirrored to us in the “more than human” world
