We will be looking at the age-old art of the hearth and how we can rekindle it in our own lives. We will be baking! Successful baking requires us to be mindful. It needs us to be fully present with our activity, engaged in a flow that is impervious to distractions. It asks us to approach recipes with a 'beginners mind' - not assuming that everything will go to plan. We will be creative together, share ideas and bring the element of play into the kitchen. Join us for a week of mindfulness practice, discussion, eating, baking and activism.

Working with traditional shamanic practices, you will learn how to shift your consciousness and come directly into contact with different aspects of nature. You will also learn how to journey to the spirits and begin to understand the ways in which they communicate. In many shamanic societies, story is used as a bridge between the spirit world and the human world. Stories come to empower and guide us in times of change. Stories come into the world because we listen. During the course we will listen to the Earth and ask for stories to build earth awareness and new vision, stories of connection and creation. Storytelling can help us to translate the voice of the Earth into a language that humans can hear and receive. What does nature want to share with us now, and how can it help us to remember? This course is for anyone who feels touched by the spiritual, ecological and economic questions facing us today. It explores what it means to be an Earth Ambassador and how to bring this vision to your everyday life.
