Volume 10, Autumn 2014

Dear Friend,

Announcing 2015 Courses and Events

The last class has ended, the gardens are put to bed and the wood stove is burning. Even though Pam was on sabbatical last year from her apprenticeship program it was a busy year of travel to North Carolina, California, Italy, England, Ecuador and around the east coast. We are looking forward this winter to slowing down, dreaming, reading and doing a bit of occasional writing.


We are excited to announce the courses, classes and special events for 2015. It will be a full year and we are looking forward to seeing many of you here and/or there.

The Yoga of Plants

This weekend class held at Kripalu Yoga Center in Massachusetts combines the unitive state of yoga with deep communion with plants. You will learn to bring into your practice the conscious connection within the human/plant matrix that taps directly into source energy.

Plant Spirit Healing

Plant Spirit Healing is more than a modality; it is a healing into life where each day we recognize the beauty way path of becoming whole. Working with the plants at this depth level answers the two main questions we come into this life walk with: who am I and what am I doing here? We will explore the dynamic matrix between plants and people where the vital essence of plants brings us into alignment with our true essential nature walking the path we are here for. This class will be taught in England.

Journey of Transformation and Deep Encounter with Dandelion

In the Magical Land of Damanhur

We will journey to Damanhur, an eco-society, in the springtime of the year to experience the depth of spirit that rises up from the land and lives within the people who have chosen to walk a path of beauty in co-creative partnership with nature. We will visit the Temples of Humankind known as the eighth wonder of the world, walk circuits to bring inner and outer balance, open our hearts to the singing of the plants, receive direct transmission from Selfic paintings, deeply commune with the Sacred Woods as well as engage in a two day ceremony of Deep Encounter with Dandelion. We will be joined by Damanhurian citizens during the Dandelion Ceremony as this is their signature plant. After this profound journey your life will never be the same.
