Earth Wisdom Studies - Nature's Alchemy




7 Weeks: meet every other week

About the Course

Join us as we reweave and strengthen our innate connection with Nature. Our adventure will take us through the basic building blocks of life, the air, fire, water, and earth where we will find our own insights while forming a personal and unique relationship with Nature. We will learn of the ancient and shamanistic method of experiential journeys using ritual body postures and/or guided visualizations with live percussion are used to explore a direct connection with Nature. This method, along with other techniques, information and creative opportunities work to help us integrate the experience of embodied ritual while transforming our consciousness.
In each experience there are creative prompts and suggestions for going deeper, in-depth research and practical wisdom shared for exploring the deeper meaning of the ritual experience with tools such as art-making, journaling, and the opportunity for sharing the experience. These are all techniques offered to ease the process of integration while providing evidence of these natural forces actively engaged with us in daily life. This is called "Right Relationship" in some traditions. It means we are living in a harmonious and dynamically balanced way, with a creative approach and a conscious awareness of our impact now and for seven generations, past, present and future...for the greatest good of all.

Hello, I'm Cat! Education has always been an important part of my life & my creative expression. In my research & experiences, I have been fortunate to have found specific "keys" for opening inner doorways leading us to possibilities for expanding our consciousness, developing inspired, innovative ideas and applying our creativity. These "keys" are universal to humanity and have been around for approximately 35,000 years.

I am naturally attracted to the mysterious. In my studies, I have persistently found secrets hidden in the ancient arts, mystical & indigenous wisdom teachings, world mythologies & nature. Secrets that unveil transmutational revelations.
