With Frederic Wiedemann
October 6 - 9, 2021
We will be “creating as Nature does.” Nature is creating all the time. Through mindful, nature-based and embodiment practices, we will connect ourselves deeply with this beautiful land — in mindful, joyful and unifying ways. In this juicy connected state with nature, we will listen for our soul sparks or impulses arising. It may be to create in poetry, music, etc. While these are welcome, we will focus on creating “Earth Art” — using the “found elements” on the land (rocks sticks, moss, grasses, dried leaves, etc). Then, we will use the ancient Tibetan sand paintings practice of (a) bringing our Earth Art to its completion, (b) show it to group for appreciation, insight, and feedback … and then (c) “erasing the sand painting” (i.e., return each natural elemental, in a ritual and sacred mode, to its original location on the land). By so doing, we will encourage connection with the land, our own creativity, growth through group feedback, and deeper connection with each element of our Earth Art.
