NATURE & SPIRIT FESTIVAL, ITALY

Jonathan and Zara will again take part in the Aurora “Nature and Spirit” conference in Tuscany, Italy, 9-12 July 2015.
The theme this year is "Tree of Life".

The festival is organised by Bebetta Campeti, who has studied with both Jonathan and Annette. It takes place in beautiful Tuscan countryside with a range of international speakers. For information and programme: http://www.aurorafestival.it/en/festival-en/

Jonathan and Zara will be giving a Tree Ceremony, a talk and a workshop:

TALK – “THE ECOLOGY OF GIVING AND RECEIVING”
The world around us is alive – not only in a physical sense but also energetically and spiritually. The shaman sees the soul in everything, and learns how to communicate with this hidden side of life. From ancient times shamans have worked together with the Spirits of Nature for healing, power, knowledge and wisdom. In gratitude for all the help, the shaman also asks what to give back, and knows the value of interdependent relationships.

Now more than ever, we need to remember this way of being. Seen from the shaman’s perspective, current environmental difficulties are related to being out of balance, both with the world and within our selves. When we focus mainly on what we can take, we forget what to offer in return. What can we do, in our everyday lives, to change this?

There are simple and powerful ways to give back to Nature and re-learn how to nourish not only the body but also the soul of the world we live in. By reawakening a feeling of connection, giving no longer seems like a sacrifice but becomes an act of joy and mutual benefit. In this way, the cycle of giving and receiving helps to heal not only the Earth but also ourselves.

WORKSHOP – “LIVING THE TREE OF LIFE”
The world is alive – and so are we. In this workshop you will be introduced to the shaman’s way of experiencing life, of seeing the soul in everything, and opening up to both the physical and spiritual sides of nature.

You will learn a simple and natural way to shift your consciousness so you can begin to listen and talk to Trees and find out what they want to teach us about living here together. The Tree of Life has been a strong presence in myth and tradition for centuries. It teaches about deep roots, a steady trunk, and a fruitful crown, and how these three work in harmony. The Tree of Life can show us how to bring its power into our everyday lives and help us feel connected, present and open-hearted.
