Earth Restoration Councils focus on developing the deep-listening skills essential for communing with Nature. Our intention is to enliven the creative space between human consciousness and the natural world. Reciprocity is central to this work: as we open to receive the earth’s living language, we are nourished; when we give attentive compassion to any element in the natural world, the web of creation is strengthened. The four sessions will follow the seven steps outlined in the course ‘Opening Gaia’s Light Mysteries.’ (Information about this is available in the Library in Communing with Nature.) Though it is possible to attend one or two of the events, attending all four gatherings will help you develop confidence and expertise in your ability to commune with plants, trees, water and wild animals.
As well as meditation, movement and ritual, Council gatherings will include generous time outdoors—in the woodland ravines, on the Ganaraska River trails and at Lake Ontario (all minutes from Owl’s Nest, in Port Hope, Ontario.) Dates for 2019 Gatherings: May 18, June 22, July 20, August 24th.
