Earth tongue

Restoring connection with body, earth and soul.

IMG_1616

We do not live on the earth, we are the earth. Restoring that wisdom, inhabiting your body and reuniting with its sacred intelligence is one of the most powerful actions you can take in the world

We are moving through such a thicket of excess and distraction, smothered and saturated without being the least bit satisfied. Earth tongue offers a way to begin to remember the things we didn’t know we had forgotten. A way to restore connection with body, earth and soul. A journey through inner and outer wilderness to recover the sacred continuum of which we are a part. No matter how frayed or forgotten that truth may have become or how estranged we may feel, we can return that magnificent animal we call a human being back onto accord with our deep wisdom and purpose and our place in the wold.

 

Upcoming Workshop – 15th – 17th July 2021

 

Something whispered something

that was not even a word.

It was more like a silence

that was understandable.

I was standing

at the edge of the pond.

Nothing living, what we call living,

was in sight.

And yet, the voice entered me,

my body-life,

with so much happiness.

And there was nothing there

but the water, the sky, the grass.

(Mary Oliver)

 

A non residential movement retreat located in and around the hills, lakes and woodlands of Caersws, Mid Wales.

Words can only take us so far. Where words end, the ancient wisdom of embodied experience begins. Engaging in the movement of life we remember our inherent wildness, our creatureliness. As we live more deeply in our bodies with all its grace and flaws we cannot help but become more compassionate to ourselves and towards all of life. We begin to return to a feeling of being at home in our bodies, perhaps for the first time since we were very small children.

Drawing from the rivers of depth psychology, movement therapy, perennial philosophy and deep ecology we will explore our being in the world through non stylised and environmental movement practice, contemplation and connection. 

Time and space to remember the things we didn’t know we had forgotten.
