WiseEarth Education offers a range of workshops and courses that enable participants to connect with the Earth, self and others and to be inspired and empowered to take part in creating a just and sustainable world. We organise our own programs and are also available to come to groups to run programs by invitation.
For latest offerings, see the WiseEarth Education facebook page, or subscribe to the e-news by emailing wiseeartheducation[at]gmail.com.
See information about our schools programs here. Some of our other workshops include:
Women’s Earth Wisdom Workshop:
This workshop is an exploration of the cycles of life and the elements and how they can teach us about living with the rhythms of nature. Together we:
– Tune in to the wisdom of the life stages of women and the guidance these can offer.
– Explore the correspondences of the moon, seasons, our lives and our menstrual cycles.
– Open to the teachings of the elements and the life that they create within and around us.
– Share experiential practices and rituals that foster a deeper heart connection with Mother Earth, and hence support us to participate in her healing.
‘Reinhabiting Place’ 6 Week Course:
Over 6 sessions we meet in various outdoor locations to:
– Learn daily practices to ground ourselves in the rhythms of nature
– Develop an understanding of and relationship with the plants, animals, and elements of our bioregion
– Cultivate deep connection with Earth wisdom, ourselves and each other
– Engage head, heart, and hands to re-localize our lives
Places are limited to 12 participants.
Work that Reconnects Workshop:
These workshops are inspired by the work of Joanna Macy and take participants through a series of experiential processes which aim to:
– Deepen our appreciation for the gifts of life;
– Provide a space for recognising the feelings we have about the environmental and social problems that concern us;
– Enable us to see from new perspectives;
– Deepen our connection to the natural world
– Deepen our understanding and awareness of ourselves
– Empower and inspire us to take new action or be able to sustain the work that we do.
Joanna Macy’s work is also referred to as ‘Deep Ecology experiential work’ or ‘despair and empowerment work’. For more information on her work see her website at: http://www.joannamacy.net/
