STARHAWK MOTHER EARTH’S HEALING HANDS: PERMACULTURE AS PRACTICAL EARTH MAGIC
If nature is sacred, permaculture is the hands-on part—how do we take damaged land, and the damaging cultures that create the destruction, and bring healing and transformation? Join us for this day learning permaculture principles, and multiple modes of nature connection and observation. We’ll brew up an earth-healing potion, plant some magical seeds in the Goddess Temple garden, and take home new skills and strategies for restoring ecosystems and community.
KELLIANA GIROUARD: FREEING THE VOICE, SOUNDING THE SPIRIT
Kellianna uses guided meditation, chanting, toning exercises and creative writing to create a warm, safe space that allows participants to discover their own unique “Earth Song.” We will come together in circle to claim our voices, to heal our bodies and minds and to honor the power of Mother Earth.
“SpiritSong,” is a unique approach to singing and toning based on a method of “singing without words;” a powerful technique that permits us to reconnect to the most primal form of singing. SpiritSong uses the voice to sound what you are feeling in the moment and this unlocks your power and unique beauty.In sacred circle we will create a community in song as we practice loving witness of ourselves and one another.

CAROLYN HILLYER: Goddess Hall, 10am-4pm WE BEAR WITNESS TO THIS WIDE EARTH (The Daughters)
We drum our footsteps to the sacred mountain, lay down on our bleeding earth and sigh
but the waters flow, the moon is singing, daughter winds are gathering and hope is high…
We will be working with the intricate details of wild mountain rituals, born from places where raw high land embraces expansive sky and tenacious ice, that offer lament, gratitude, spell-binding, mending and honouring to the earth. This will involve working together to create a symbolic mountain shrine, a vessel of prayer from which we will draw a litany of tender and powerful songs. We will also be making and marking totemic shields (using deer hide and bone, gathered and prepared during the previous winter) that can catch and distil our undertaking as fierce and gentle warrior daughters of the earth mother. Together we will bear witness…
This workshop is for women please bring a packed lunch.
