LISTEN TO THE EARTH SPEAK
A YEAR COURSE FOR WOMEN
OUR WISDOM, CONNECTION, NOURISHMENT & BELONGING
VITALISED & CELEBRATED
LED BY MARINA ROBB
& ELEANOR DARLEY
Meeting by the fire, in the woods, listening and tending to our wellbeing, deep in connection, ceremony, plant knowledge, ceremonial practices, laughter and reflection.
This offering is a year course to energise, nourish and celebrate you as a woman; acknowledging your physical and natural connection to the Earth, nature's rhythms, your wider community, kinships and culture. It will offer the support to build confidence, belonging and vitality of being.
As a group we want to ask questions, challenge ourselves but also deeply nourish our intuition, our ability to listen, to lead together and be comfortable to prepare fertile ground for our voices. Voices that are supported by the development of our integrity, self awareness and the equanimity that comes from exploring our polarities, our shadows, our self beliefs. Also this time will teach us to let go - to be, to develop our true nature, to enjoy, to take space, to recalibrate and harmonise.
The invitation is to commit to the whole year. The group will be closed so we can move together, get to know one another and open to life. We hold a safe, fun, serious and positive space. We will offer many experiences with creativity, outdoor skills, ritual and delve into nature’s medicine chest. As facilitators we have many years experience working with the sweat lodge and we will be sharing this medicine with you at particular times.
Some of the programme is planned, but will organically follow what arises out of our meetings together, so we can shape the work around what we need, and what we want to explore and experience.
We will start in September 2019 meeting on a Friday evening. There will be three one day meetings, two webinars and four Friday night meetings, plus two full weekends in April 2020 and September 2020.
