Warm Thursdays in July is an opportunity to explore our relationship with the Earth. We wonder;

What will make a difference?
This week –
GROUPS & the Earth – July 22nd we will explore the relationship between organisations and the Earth. Everyone participates in multiple groups be they families, community, school or work groups. We will explore how groups effect the earth? We will touch on the power of groups before being introduced to a way that we can consciously recognise and work with the spirit of organisations, to support group integrity.
Integrity In Groups
With long term meditator, Helen Russ Ph.D we will explore, experience and discuss this relationship.
With pandemics, environmental decline, pollution, mass extinctions, displaced people, war and over consumption and the list goes on; what is it to be a positive human being, a positive force on the Earth. In the five weeks we will look at our role as an individual, as part of a group and what is the role of our ‘Place’.
This is not about doing more, its about how we be in the world, what we hold.
On zoom, we will share stories, poetry and a presentation that draws from experiential, spiritual and theoretical foundations for our relationship with the Earth. There will be discussion, questions, interactive practices and the final segment of the evening will be a meditation that helps us connect with the Earth in a greater way. Each week the meditation will focus on the particular aspect we are exploring.
SELF – July 1st we will touch on the philosophical foundations of the Earth and us as one living form. The life flowing through you is the same life flowing through me in a different form. What does this mean on a practical front. We will explore how we as an individual can be a positive force for the Earth without doing more and without leaving home.
OTHER – July 8th July 8th we will explore our relationship with ‘the other’. The life flowing through you, is the same life flowing through me in a different form. Recognition, presence to presence. Why are relationships the foundation of ‘Life’? Why is it important to recognise the ‘life’ in a tree. What is the affect of acknowledgement and gratitude on other life forms. What happens to water when we are consciously aware of its spirit?
PLACE – July 15th we will explore our relationship with ‘place’. Why it matters to have an active and conscious relationship with the place you are living. We will talk about dreaming tracks, earth meridians, energy wells, sacred lines and sacred weaves and how they effect us. We will talk about he healing power of the Earth and why grounding is so important.
GROUPS – July 22nd we will explore the relationship between organisations and the Earth. Everyone participates in multiple groups be they families, community, school or work groups. We will explore how groups effect the earth? We will touch on the power of groups before being introduced to a way that we can consciously recognise and work with the spirit of organisations, to support group integrity.

Across the Creek – land energy experiences in the home paddock explores the relationship with the spirit of place through the canvas of my home place NE of Warren in Central West New South Wales.

Experiential, practical and theoretical
This is an introductory workshop.
Helen has studied consciousness for more than 20 years. She will share anecdotes from her training and her personal experiences, and she will help us learn by doing it with you.
It combines principles of sourcing, reflection, holism, experiential learning and awareness.
Helen often says, its the most fun you can have.
