VOICE OF THE EARTH - Shamanism, Story and Spiritual Ecology
More than ever,
the Earth is calling to us how are we to listen? Introducing
a combination of ancient shamanic techniques and story-creating practices,
this two week experiential course opens the door to a deep and symbiotic
relationship with nature. What does nature need from humans at this
time? What do humans need from nature? Working with spirits and story,
we will learn to hear the voices of the world and discover ways to
In the shamanic
worldview, the Earth is seen as a living, animate being and everything
in it is alive and filled with spirit. The shaman was the first scientist,
and engaged with both visible and invisible aspects of the world.
Many important medicines have been discovered by indigenous shamans,
where the initial knowledge about a plants use came not from
scientific analysis, but from communicating with the plant itself.
But how does the shaman know how to talk with a plant, rock or river?
How does she listen for an answer?
This course offers
a way to access the soul and spirit in all living beings, to discover
another type of knowledge and encourage a more holistic worldview.
Working with traditional shamanic practices, you will learn how to
shift your consciousness and come directly into contact with different
aspects of nature. You will also learn how to journey to the spirits
and begin to understand the ways in which they communicate.
In many shamanic
societies, story is used as a bridge between the spirit world and
the human world. Stories come to empower and guide us in times of
change. Stories come into the world because we listen. During the
course we will listen to the Earth and ask for stories to build earth
awareness and new vision, stories of connection and creation. Storytelling
can help us to translate the voice of the Earth into a language that
humans can hear and receive. What does nature want to share with us
now, and how can it help us to remember?
Ecology calls for the Voice of the Earth to be included in the environmental
debate. At this key time of challenge, we need to engage with both the
body and the soul of nature. Learning to work with them together can
radically re-awaken our relationship to the Earth and help us discover
new solutions, new inspirations, and new possibilities. This is not
a luxury bonus or exotic sideline, it is an essential core practice.
This course is
for anyone who feels touched by the spiritual, ecological and economic
questions facing us today. It explores what it means to be an Earth
Ambassador and how to bring this vision to your everyday life.
how to communicate directly with the Earth, we will look deeper into
the interdependence of ecological and spiritual systems. We will walk
in nature, we will talk in circle, and after listening deeply, we
ask - how can I lend my voice to Nature? How can I speak for the Earth?
