Awakening Intuitive Self Care is a three day Earth Medicine immersion designed to gently guide you back to the land and home to yourself. If you feel called to align your life more deeply with the natural rhythms of the earth, to foster nourishing habits with thoughtfully chosen foods and herbal medicine, to open the ears of your heart to the voice of the plants, to reconnect with your individual song and prayer, and to do all of this in gentle, supportive community, then this retreat is for you, dear one.
We will map our body's present location within the great Gaian map of seasonal and lunar circles, locating ourselves in this exact time and place. When we know where we are in the spiral, we can begin tracking our own unique rhythms in ways that bring insight, delight, and surprise.
We will journey together in the kitchen, initiating the Kitchen Witch within and learning delicious Ayurvedic recipes for gentle cleansing and soothing of the body and spirit. Together, we will ritually prepare ghee, a sacred healing food, and learn how to infuse this golden elixir with medicinal herbs and spices.
We will journey together into the forest and meet the community of plants growing around us. Entering into intentional silence, we will travel the inner road to meet a plant of our choosing and in doing so not only develop our intuitive skills, but also bring back medicine that we alone are asked to carry.
We will harvest, respectfully and with great care, plants with which to make an herbal body oil. This beautiful oil will be a part of our Ayurvedic abhygana practice.
We will fiercely honor, listen to, and give back to the spirits of the land on whose dwelling place this sacred work is conducted.
If you are feeling a Yes to this, we truly honor all of the forces and beings, seen and unseen, who came together to make it possible that your eyes find this page. We look forward to meeting you and holding space together and as we commit to the responsibility of finding and sharing the medicine we carry in this life.
