As we move through the seasons, we will offer you a variety of practices that will support your exploration of yourself in relation to the seasons. These practices will come in the form of a weekly email communication. Explorations will all be supported by specific essential oils that connect us to the wisdom, nourishment, and healing of the plant world. The simple act of using botanicals helps us pay attention to our life practices, our health, and our relationships. The transformational power of botanicals through their essences, oils, and other properties can help support the journey to our inner wisdom and wholeness. In our Healing Circle, we will listen to our inner teacher, the voices in our healing circle, and the healing power of the plants that have been used for centuries to help open awareness, evoke the sacred, bring joy, heal the body and uplift the spirit.
A variety of practices will be offered each season.
- Personal reflection enhanced through the use of the seasons, poetry, art, or music that helps us reflect on ourselves.
- Practices that encourage our intuition, sensitivity, awareness, observation:
Intuition is direct knowing. It is the incredibly effortless perception that connects us via our body to everything in the physical plane, and through our heart to our soul and all other souls – even to the core consciousness of trees, rocks, birds, and simple household objects. Intuition is immensely useful in the world for practical purposes. It is also a vehicle for knowing, becoming, and creating from the soul. Practices will include listening to our bodies, observation, awareness, mindfulness, visualizations, and use of our senses.
