This is a 6-week experience for people longing to cultivate their ecological self, embody their wholeness, and deepen their belonging to place and purpose as we intentionally meet this moment of intersecting ecological and social crises.
Next course starts September 2.
Get Re-Membering: Poems of Earth and Soul.
The 75 poems in Re-Membering are an unabashed celebration of the sensuality and mystery of wild nature, and an invitation to express our biggest selves and live into our deepest belonging.
What emerges when you empty yourself of everything and crack open with the land?
The modern-day wilderness fast is a new/old ritual of setting time aside in sacred ceremony to be by ourselves in/with/as wild nature in order to leave behind the voices of the dominant culture, cross over into a liminal space where our senses re-awaken, and we re-member our deep belonging, and bring our gifts back to our communities.
Deep exhale. Guilty on all counts. A verdict isn’t a fix, let alone transformation, but for a moment we can lean into a sacred pause and sit with it all, including the contradictions. Sit, cry, celebrate, laugh, commune, dream. Feel our body and breath.
We continue to hold the vision of a new way of being together, a multi-species, post-capitalist, decolonial earth-honoring society of care.
When invited to teach an upcoming Ecotherapy course, I realized that something beyond more knowledge or even skills, as commonly understood, is required. Something in me balked at overly-academicizing it, and felt that all-too-familiar intellect taking over, alienating my body, heart, and soul. So these are some spring wild poppies and prickly cacti that emerged through the soil:
The deep longing that brought you here doesn’t care about the categories or forms of your culture. Your soul calling only wants to unfurl endlessly, co-creating the universe in the way only it is able to, and meant to, if allowed to breath. If allowed to be embodied through you.
