Volume 6, Issue 4
The wheel of the year turns once again as longer days bless us with more light and little by little the Earth warms giving way to green shoots. Here at Sweetwater Sanctuary we are planting seeds, boiling down the last of the sap and making ready for a much anticipated spring season. Even though there are still patches of snow here and there the robins are hunting for soft ground to begin their search for that much sought after worm.
We are also preparing ourselves for a full season of great classes. We want to remind you about the three Plant Communication; Reclaiming Our Birth-rite classes this coming year, the first being in California April 26-28. The exciting new addition to this class will be a Plant Concert, That’s right the plants will be playing for you. Intrigued? Come join the fun in Minnesota June 7-9 and Vermont July 26-28.
We had our first planning meeting this past month for ONE, Organization of Nature Evolutionaries where we are “bridging the heart of nature with the heart of humanity”. Several people from across the country participated and we are well on our way to forming a collective organization that will be of benefit to humanity and nature. We will keep you posted on developments but in the meantime be sure to check out the classes being offered in the LIFE Art Garden of Education.
There are so many exciting projects Partner Earth Education Center is engaging in not the least of which is our research with plant songs. Pam recently returned from Damanhur where she purchased a “Music of the Plants” device. We have many ideas about how to work with the plants on bringing their songs to a wide audience but we need your help. Please consider making a Donation for our ongoing research. Thank you in advance for your willingness to participate in bringing a greater awareness of Earth and her magnanimous beings to the wider world.
Ode to Spring by Mark Carlin
Spring supposedly arrived sometime around the Equinox, just like they said it would, only it didn't feel like it on that late March day as North Atlantic winds blew inland all across Vermont and brought mixtures of sun, rain, tiny hail, periodic whiteout bursts and later brilliant full moonlight. And then just the other day, while standing atop a step ladder pruning fruit trees, I heard the first rumblings of thunder and looked up to see a huge formation of high flying geese arrowing their way to another slowly greening field or ice-receding body of water.
