Earth-Based Initiatives for Our Times - Part 3 of the 5-Part Series: Earth - with Mbali Marais

01/28/2023 09:00 AM - 11:30 AM PT



How do we practice in these times? The real question is how do we not? Amidst the chaos and conflict of the individual and collective fires raging around us, there is an invitation to find our primary call to creativity and tend to the deep self. When we realise we are not all there is, we awaken to the call to find our wholeness in the mystery and the greater earth story of who and why we are here. 
In this five part elemental series hosted by Braided Wisdom we explore earth based practices to guide us in this time. These practices are grounded in the 5 elemental cosmology of the Dagara tradition - fire, water, earth, mineral and nature - and cross-cultural ways of knowing. We will draw from the wisdom of intergenerational circles. We will look to the past in order to support us in the present to move forward and leave a legacy of earth stewardship for the next generations. We will return to the age old practices of radical ritual, contemplative practices, reflection, storytelling, ceremony and the arts. 


This registration is for Part 3 of the 5-Part Series

Event Date: Saturday, January 28, 2022 - Earth

Event Time: 9am - 11:30 am PST




Being born is validation enough and yet our sense of belonging and home is often sabotaged by our not enough-ness, our need for validation, and a feeling of being lost in the world. We often walk the path of the homeless in scarcity looking for an identity, a recognition, and a place to bring our gifts to our community. As we dig deep into the earth element we may find that abundance is rightly ours and the earth never said you don’t belong. We come into sacred reciprocity with the earth. We come home.
