Come back to Earth! Leave behind the confines of the culture of consumerism and find your own wild and authentic self, your place of belonging in community and your purest connection to Gaia.
RE-EARTHING will meet in person for five weekends October through April at Spirit Hollow in SW Vermont.
RE-EARTHING is an six-month journey of connecting to our pure and beautiful humanness, re-wholing fragmented parts deep in our subconscious, being part of a soulful community, and falling in love with Earth, each other and the challenges and opportunities of these times.
ReEarthing is a place where you are welcomed in your raw vulnerability, a place where all emotions are embraced, where self-love is amplified, and perspective and play are celebrated, where you will cross thresholds into the forest and into the depths of your own soul, where inspiration is re-ignited and revered.
Each session will include teachings, deep imagery journeys, council, small group practices, and experiential invitations out on the land and in the forest. We will be offering you many invitations to deepen the work between sessions.
GUIDES: Tracey Forest (KeyTurner) and Jonah Ruh Roberts (Raven)
This program is inspired by Tracey’s and Jonah’s own life-long journeys of healing and re-wholing into passionate love for Earth and Mystery and our human place within it, as well as their intensive guide training with Bill Plotkin and the Animas Valley Institute, the teachings of Joanna Macy, and the poets, writers, thinkers and dreamers that collectively inspire a vision of the evolution of humanity.
Over the course of the journey, your nervous system will settle into a deep sense of belonging in yourself and within a supportive and safe community, you will gain access to energy, creativity and passion that may have been locked away since childhood, you will feel more space, self love and joy in your body, mind and spirit, and you will feel the deep possibility of being an active part of maturing our culture into integrity, beauty, wisdom and regeneration.
