Since the dawn of human existence we have had a relationship with trees on the physical, spiritual, and emotional levels of existence. Historical traditions highlight the wisdom of trees and the practices of connecting with the devas of trees are still practiced throughout the world in many cultures. Not a lost-art we are exciting to bring this powerful workshop to the youth of the Byron Shire.
This 5 week workshop includes:
* Experiential practices and techniques to listen to the language of trees to guide, nourish and support our earthly journey.
* Guided journeys in Shinrin-Yoku (also known as forest bathing) to establish and nourish the perceptive heart of our youth
* Review of the historical relationship of trees and man through a soulful and spiritual lense to raise awareness of the teachings of trees and the concurrent usage across global cultures.
* Geographical analysis of sacred practices that involve trees and/or tree spirits/devas.
* Understanding of nature spirits vs devas vs elementals as to guide our questions appropriately.
* Practice of sound and movement practices to better open communication channels with tree devas.
* Biological understanding of trees structure, composition and relationship to their environment and the interconnected web of life.
* Using tree material to produce symbolic guidance cards for personal use.
