Abstract or Description

This workshop will begin by spending time becoming present to our own body, present to each other and present to the physical space. We will then gather in a circle and share an embodied ritual to explore our relationship with the earth, using the symbolism of natural objects to locate our feelings through the material world. Stone will represent our fear & our courage, leaves and petals our sadness & our love, a branch our anger & our passion, and a clay bowl our emptiness & our potential. This idea is based on an exercise developed by Joanna Macey and can be found in her book (Macy, 1998)
Macy, J. (1998) Coming back to life: practices to reconnect our lives, our world. Gabriola Island: New Society Publishers.
