Heal the Earth? Classes for You

Are you waking up to heal our planet?

Are you already taking steps to reverse climate change? Do you have the conviction that united, with our hearts full of love and compassion, and with focused intention, we can make a difference? Or are you struggling with “climate despair” and feeling either depression or anger?

I learned that we are on the threshold of a new era. And that despair gives way to the fierce determination to make a difference. The recent IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences) Conference, and the CHI (Consciousness and Healing Initiative) pre-conference, Biofield Science and Healing July, 2019 gave me new hope.

IONS speakers told of how science, spirituality, and activism are coming together. They know we can use the power of our collective consciousness for the good of the whole.img_6331-e1568029345335.jpg

Inner call to IONS

I had been called inwardly to re-start teaching Communication with Nature classes. I looked online, with different search terms, to convince myself that I was not alone. And not crazy. I came across various beloved authors. Their older books line my walls. Then I read Jude Currivan, a physics and consciousness oriented cosmologist, author of The Cosmic Hologram.

Jude was going to be teaching in Santa Clara. I thought, “that’s not so far”. I looked at the program, and realized all these faves, and dozens of others were also going to be speaking!

Out of 700 people, I did not know a single person, beforehand. And yet we are all in this together. And we can find a way out, together.

Jude Currivan: fractal patterns for peaceimg_5960.jpg

Dr. Currivan introduced some of the latest physics. How the apparent solidity of the physical world is not the true reality. 99.99% is nothingness, black holes and dark matter. What is left is ripples and relationships in energy fields. The fundamental unit is no longer the atom, but information.

img_6390.jpgShe spoke of how fractal patterns are universal–from how metals change their state, to river systems, coastlines, biological relations like rabbit reproduction, to patterns of wildfires, earthquakes and galaxies. And how they play out in human behavior, computer and social networks.

Please take note of this if you are prone to “climate despair”:

Jude said that the fractal patterns of hurricanes and earthquakes, the destructive patterns of our wars and conflicts can be mirrored by how we can manifest the same power to create peace.

It’s apparently up to us.

john a. powell: Overcoming “othering”

john a. powell spoke eloquently about overcoming the sense of separateness, the “othering” that plagues our social relations. He spoke of the deep divisions in this country, that show up in immigration suffering, in bitterness and political hostility, in denial of the basic humanity of the other as oneself.

The “othering” can be across races. It can be across gender differences, economic inequality, national borders, religions. It can be across species.

Compassionate Interspecies Communication

We can overcome that sense of separation, of “otherness” and experience oneness with each other. Also with trees, plants, and yes, even with insects. We can train ourselves to apply universal love, translate it into compassion, and tap into our higher purposes for being here.

At this conference, I heard that dominance is on the way out as we become more woke. And habits of “othering” can be overcome. In fact, we are all on the threshold of a new way to live, to find our gifts and use them (see gifts)

How are you already part of this change?

Have you also been working hard, to serve your family, community, humanity and the planet? Every act of loving kindness, blessing, forgiveness counts. I invite you to extend that love to communicate with nature.

Are you already aware of the interconnectedness of all living things? Do you know about how trees communicate through fungal networks, called the Wood Wide Web? Do you know how plants communicate with each other?

We can retrain our minds.

We need to overcome some false beliefs. Perhaps first is to throw out the belief in human dominance. Replace it with mutuality, respect, compassion, knowing that we are interconnected, even intertwined.

You can:

  • Talk with trees
  • Cooperate lovingly with insects
  • Rise up with mountains
  • Tune into your pet
  • Talk to your body
  • Make friends with Crow or Rattlesnake

I am here to be of service to you in this way.

Our positive intent can be part of the emerging fractal patterns of conscious unity and planetary healing.

Our individual gifts can unite in love to heal our planet

Our Planet Needs Us Now…

I’ve heard that we have 12 years left. That is all. To significantly reverse the ecological harm that we have done to our planet, in order for it still to be livable. That’s not much time.

What are your gifts?

Each of us has a contribution to make. Each of us has gifts. For some of us, it might be in the fields of technology, business, customer service, education, management, gardening, farming, activism, the arts, writing, singing, poetry, drama, healing, research, caring for the ill. The most important thing is for each to offer our gifts with our whole hearts. And to perform our duties with compassion, kindness, love, forgiveness. And to offer our gifts, selflessly, as sacred acts, wherever we are called.

My gift, and where I am called right now, is to teach people to communicate with nature. I have taught a few people this. Others are teaching on other levels.

Rise up from despair: we can save our planet

I know that we probably cannot completely reverse the environmental harm we have created. However, it’s possible to have a significant effect on seemingly impossible toxic traumas. I have already seen the profound results of being able to reverse GMO’s. We can communicate with the Divine Intelligences in Nature, with sincerity of purpose, and focused intention. Yes, we can.

If you have doubts, ask me!

In my massage practice, I have seen people reverse multiple degenerative conditions and avoid surgery. I never advertised this, because I believed supposed “miracles” were outside my scope of practice.

This is changing because of the urgency of our planet’s needs.

Love and compassion, combined with conscious intention can create the changes we need

Recently, I attended the 18th International IONS conference and the CHI pre-conference, “I Don’t End Here”: Biofield Science and Healing. From inspirational presentations of talented engineers, doctors, spiritual teachers, ministers, meditators, dancers, shamans, leading edge thinkers, researchers, some of whom I have admired and quoted from for 30 years, I learned that we are on the verge of a new era.

Some examples of research were given by Rollin McCraty, founder of HeartMath. “We’re at the dawn of recognizing love as the new transformational intelligence.” When we focus our intention, using our whole hearts, collectively we can change not only ourselves but also our environment.

Blessing

At the IONS Conference, I was moved not only by the insights of researchers and speakers. I was even more deeply convinced by a ceremony of blessing conducted by Rev. Paulette Pipe. As she had us go through a process of using our hearts and our hands to collectively bless every continent of the earth, all the children and adults, all of the plants and the earth and the trees, all relations and relationships, I could feel the power of good build in the room of 700 people blessing. And I was moved to tears as I could feel it spreading to the whole earth.

This has a little part of the meditation she did with us, however in person with her, and collectively, it was off the charts.

“What happens if we realize that we exist beyond our physical bodies, and that our consciousness and energy fields can connect to foster healing?” –Consciousness and Healing Initiative, CHI pre-conference at IONS Conference)

These experiences have awakened in me the deep conviction that we can do more. And that I need to put everything I have into teaching people to communicate with nature. One of my small gifts. And I am committed to supporting you in awakening your gifts.

From the IONS conference page:

“mind-expanding presentations by world-renowned speakers discussing astrophysics, molecular biology, indigenous wisdom, mind-body healing, consciousness and technology, extraordinary human capacities, and more!

Are you inspired to participate with others in making a difference for our planet? One of the things that I learned from this conference is that different people contribute their gifts: scientists; activists; indigenous leaders; spiritual teachers; meditators.

Moms, dads, grandparents, children, we all can do our parts. Each tiny act of kindness, makes a difference to the whole.

Upcoming workshops and classes

    Teach! Or Be Thrown to Whales!

    breathtaking clouds Columbia Gorge trail

    Deva Communion Background, Rosi’s story

    Rosi’s favorite childhood companions in rural Massachusetts were a cat she adopted, and the neighbor farmer’s horses and cows. She felt sorry for how the horses’ grass was so short, and would bring them armloads of luscious overgrown grasses (“weeds”) from her family’s side of the fence. The horses came to the fence to talk with her. They never turned down her offerings.

    She also was fascinated by how her parents added vegetable scraps to the garden compost heap, and out sprang these curious little fellows, garden worms!

    Even today, in Portland, Oregon, she loves gardening. She started conscious organic gardening in 1971.

    Findhorn, Kinship With All Life–Communicate with Plants, Insects

    However, 1977 was the beginning of a great adventure that made sense of experiences she had had since she was small. She read books such as The Findhorn Garden, To Hear the Angels Sing and To Honor the Earth, by Dorothy Maclean; as well as J. Allen Boone’s Kinship With All Life.

    At her Colonel Summers Park community garden plot, she started talking with plants and insects and they all talked back. That seemed normal to her. She assumed the purpose of Findhorn was to encourage people to talk to their gardens. Her garden partner argued that it wasn’t easy to learn from a book. She thought Rosi should teach.

    But Rosi was not eager to teach. She loved the connection with all of nature and the inner communion she had had since she was small. And she loved the deep stillness that nature brought. She preferred to keep it private. However, the Devas argued that Rosi should teach.

    Rosi decisions: like hanging moss lit by the sun

    Guess what? Turn of the century, it’s a new era. Rosi speaks.

    I was stubborn. (And perhaps a bit shy, and insecure.) Teaching was not my gig, or so I thought. In November of 2000 Devas appeared in a dream as angelic beings of light and again on the mountainside above my home in Grants Pass, Oregon. They insisted that I take people into nature and teach them to communicate the way I did.

    They said my way of communing was simple, and people needed to learn simple ways to deepen their connection with Nature. I protested, and said, “You must have the wrong person. I don’t teach workshops, there must surely be others more qualified to teach this.”

    They said, “Prove it.”

    So I read through the libraries, bought books by the dozen, looking for others with the skills I felt I lacked. I found some authors with a similar love, who used their hearts to communicate. However, I couldn’t find anyone who was writing about the barriers we have in our culture to interspecies communication and how to overcome them. Especially about the fear of insects. Or how individuals could change from the attitude of human dominance to  cooperation. But I still held back.

    Hmm… Is this a barrier or a doorway?

    “Do we have to feed you to the whales?”

    The Devas finally said, “Are you going to be like Jonah? Do we have to feed you to the whales or what?” Woops! I got on it!

    I wrote up a bibliography of now over a hundred books, available here. Finally, in 2001, I started to teach.

    The Devas of the Columbia Gorge have a mission to help humans communicate with Nature. So I held my first workshops there. Then they told me they would go to each of the other workshop sites to teach the local Devas and nature spirits how to help participants open up to them. After the first workshops at the Columbia Gorge, the Devas kept their promise. Every participant was able to connect, no matter how left-brain, fearful, or timid they started out.

    In 2002, I started to teach Garden Communication classes to adults, children and elders. I was nicknamed “The Plant Whisperer.” And continued teaching these until 2009.

    Garden, tree, and nature communication classes: heal ourselves, heal the planet

    Post script, 2019. I started again to teach Garden Communication at Gabriel Park Community Gardens in Portland, Oregon in 2017.

    After the 2017 wildfires, the Devas who were on a mission to help humans learn to communicate with them moved to Tryon Creek State Park, near Portland Oregon. I have been teaching classes there, since the late summer of 2019. Look for full length workshops there or near Los Angeles, CA, where the spirits of Nature are also eager to help you learn and wake up.

    Nature Communication, New Consciousness Paradigm

    A call to the truth of our connection

    Our connection is the story of humanity, on our little blue marble of a planet, suspended in space. We have only this one little planet to call home. We have only this one time, perhaps 12 years, to restore this planet to livability. We have only ourselves to blame. And we have only ourselves to rely on.

    Our planet needs us now. Each of us has a contribution to make. Each of us has gifts. The most important thing is for each of us to offer the gifts that fill our hearts: compassion, kindness, acts of love, forgiveness. And to offer our gifts, selflessly, wherever we are called.

    I am called to teach people to communicate with nature. I hope by doing so, that we can communicate not only with the immediate nature that we can see and feel. Also to spread our consciousness, with love, to the entire planet. And also to all of humanity. Because truly we are one.

    We have a lot of work ahead of us to learn that, however. And to learn to overcome the habits we created when we were deluded by belief in our domination of nature. And we have much pain to heal from our past domination of and exploitation of each other.

    Noetic Sciences Conference, IONS, July 18-21, 2019

    IONS, Institute of Noetic Sciences, was founded by Astronaut Edgar Mitchell. He had a “spontaneous epiphany experience”, on the way back from the Apollo 14 mission. When he saw our little blue marble of a planet suspended in space, he saw our fragility, our thin atmosphere necessary for life. He recognized our oneness, in every molecule, every living being. He went to Indian Vedic literature to find similarities to his experience of “unity, oneness, accompanied by ecstasy.”

    I realized that the story of ourselves as told by science—our cosmology, our religion—was incomplete and likely flawed. I recognized that the Newtonian idea of separate, independent, discrete things in the universe wasn’t a fully accurate description. What was needed was a new story of who we are and what we are capable of becoming.

    –Dr. Edgar Mitchell

    This is the famous picture of our little blue marble. (Wikipedia)

    480px-The_Earth_seen_from_Apollo_17

    In 1973, Dr. Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Its mission “is to reveal the interconnected nature of reality through scientific exploration and personal discovery, creating a more compassionate, thriving, and sustainable world.”

    At the 18th International IONS conference, I felt like I finally landed.

    For many years I have kept my spiritual experiences and communities separate from my clinical work as a massage therapist and researcher. And talking with Devas? Almost afraid to mention. Although I have taught clients so they could be empowered into a new relationship with their bodies.

    Then, the spiritual side of life kept intruding into my nice neat tidy professional life. Like, recently, Mother Mary of Guadalupe appeared in my treatment room to direct me and the client to heal a severely painful displaced fracture in her foot. When the client told me who it was, I had to look her up on the internet. She fit the picture.

    Many of my friends are environmental and social justice activists. I used to do that. But I have a different trajectory in the present. Nowadays, I am more concerned with strengthening people to heal themselves with compassion and love. And I have a deep conviction that love is more powerful than the forces that divide us.

    I am just as deeply committed as my friends to make this world a better place, to heal our planet. But I am called differently.

    At this conference, I felt like I came home. I knew no one before hand. Then heard dozens of researchers and scientists who echoed my own convictions. Who were talking about the interface of science, spirituality and activism. 

    Science is showing what spirituality and indigenous traditions have said for a long time. We have reached the end of an era. We can no longer follow the old pattern of beliefs that we are separate. It has destroyed so much of our environment and our hearts in relationship to each other.

    Instead we must act out of love and compassion and kindness, in every possible aspect of our lives. And that every act of loving kindness contributes to uplift the whole. Our consciousness is shifting. That was one of the most powerful messages that I would like to share from the conference.

    Consciousness and Healing Initiative, CHI

    July 18 was a pre-conference, presented by the Consciousness and Healing Initiative, CHI, on Biofield Science and Healing. It was led by Dr. Shamini Jain. I have followed her Biofield research for many years. However it took until halfway through the program that I realized she was the same person. She introduced a program full of stunning speakers I have quoted from for years.

    2019-07-19 10.47.30-2
    Deepak Chopra at Biofield Science and Healing IONS pre-conference

    Later, other inspirational thinkers, researchers, social pioneers and spiritual lights joined in the chorus. And I will never forget the power of Rev. Paulette Pipe having us collectively bless the world with a Buddhist ceremony. Takeaway: our consciousness is powerful, when we are united in love and compassion, to change not only our bodies, also the world.

    Hearts and minds in collaboration

    I saw how, when we put our hearts and minds together, in a focused, collaborative way, we can experience the power to bless that comes from unity, a sense of oneness. We may never recover from all the environmental damage that we’ve done, but we can probably stop the decline from going further.

    Altogether, it inspired me to be of greater service to our wholeness. I invite you to join me in Nature, or join with like minded others close to you, to heal the wounds in our society, in other people, in our relationships.

    Paradigm change: domination on the way out

    The old paradigm was about human dominance over nature, and separation from each other. Individualism and greed justified wars and violence. It excused the cruelty that many inflicted and the “othering” that sees differences as “the enemy”.

    It was about separation of mind from body, of heart from soul. It seemed to have a lot of power. But it is eroding along with our environment declining. It was easy to be frightened by these changes. However, I am no longer frightened. Just determined to do my part.

    New paradigm: our interconnectness, mutuality, Co-creation.

    We can recruit our loving heart energy and deep faith as part of the solution.

    Each one of you can also feel the power, the possibility of how we can make change by our loving focused intention, collectively. Have you ever experienced this before? What does this remind you of?

    To save our planet – one tree at a time

    I was deeply moved by the inspired efforts of this Brazilian couple. Did you know what could be done to start to reverse global warming by planting trees?

    Brazilian photojournalist Sebastião Ribeiro Salgado and his wife Lélia were horrified to see that Minas Gerais, a former cattle ranch and lush rainforest from his childhood, was deforested barren land by 1998.

    It was Lélia’s idea to replant and to form Instituto Terra. It is an “environmental organization dedicated to the sustainable development of the Valley of the River Doce”. They demonstrate that it is possible to save our planet, one tree at a time. And more. Their institute also teaches children to become the environmental leaders we need for the next generation.

    This dedication can incrementally start to reverse global warming. On a local level, they profoundly re-ordered the micro climate. In 20 years they planted over 2 million saplings. Hundreds of endangered animals thrive once again–30 species of mammals, 168 species of birds and 15 species of reptiles. Insects and fish join them as the restoration influences surrounding areas. They have trained thousands of adults, children and youth in the region to develop environmental awareness, improve lives of farmers and promote sustainable development.

    “On top of reintroducing plants and animals to the area, the project has rejuvenated several once dried-up springs in the drought-prone area, and has even positively affected local temperatures.”

    Couple Spends 20 Years Planting an Entire Forest and Animals Have Returned

    Do they also bring you hope? Can you hear Mother Earth, where they have replanted the trees, when she whispers, “Thank you, and bless you”?

    Are you familiar with Project Drawdown, a comprehensive plan to reverse global warming? It has good science behind steps that we can take. Some of them may surprise you.

    Do you know of local efforts to restore habitat, reverse global warming, and cool the earth? The best ones will warm our hearts when you share them here. Thank you!

    Welcome to Deva Communion

    I teach Talking with Trees as part of a full Deva Communion workshop. If you would like to be notified when the next Deva Communion workshop is offered, please email me: rosi@devacommunion.com

    Trees for Mindful Healing

    Welcoming Tree, Teacher and Healer

    When you walk mindfully in the forest, especially among ancient trees, you can let go of thoughts, distractions, and stories that crowd your mind in daily life. Don’t those often harass until you feel hunted by your own thoughts? Instead, come to a park. Trees can be your friends, to let go of that noisy crowd. As silence enters, you arrive at a deep healing peace.

    Mindfulness is the practice of being in the present moment. It doesn’t mean necessarily to sit in a meditation pose. It can also happen while walking.

    Mindful walking with trees

    Walk on the path between the trees. Be aware of the sensation of each foot as it hits the ground, the bend of your hip, knee and ankle, the slight breeze against your face, hear the sweet bird calls above your head. Walk until you feel called to go deep within. In the company of trees, you can be present as they raise their leafy branches high, reaching for the bright sun. You can enter into stillness as they reach their roots deep into the earth.

    When we attune to trees, we can imagine becoming one with them. We too can reach up to the light as if in praise. Send roots deep into the Earth, as we draw in stillness. We can become both rooted and inspired; nourished and radiant. Even while walking.

    This is the start of profound healing.

    Trees that teach

    Today I walked in Tryon Creek State Park with a friend. The first tree that spoke gently allowed each of us to go deeper, to gain insight, to know that we were walking the right path. It is one of many trees that are teachers in Tryon Creek State Park. We called it the Welcoming Tree. This gentle tree, nestled among the brilliant green understory seems modestly understated. Yet it is a profound Teacher and Healer.

    Trees that heal

    Further down the trail, we came around a corner into brilliant sun. But what took my breath away was is the awareness of a great Presence. I had to look for the source of this blast of joy. Found it in this tree (below). This tree blessed each of us, with a downpour of heartfelt grace. We called it the Initiation Tree. We saw that two parts of the tree had already broken off and are entering into a state of decay, to feed other lifeforms. Meanwhile, the remaining tree is still alive and its roots spread nourishment into neighboring trees, preparing the next generation. It only knows how to bless.

    Trees that listen

    These trees I discovered last week. They have roots that invite you to sit and meditate. These trees will listen to any remaining thoughts that are bothering you. Until the thoughts are complete. And you are at peace. Meanwhile you have found some new tree friends!

    Roots for you to sit. The trees listen.Tree Roots Offer Meditation Seatings

    Welcome to Deva Communion!

    I teach people to use their body awareness to heal their minds, in Deva Communion Healing. And I teach Talking with Trees as part of a full Deva Communion workshop. If you would like to be notified when the next Deva Communion workshop is offered, please email me: rosi@devacommunion.com or call 503-708-2911.

    Or leave a comment below!

    I look forward to talking with trees and you!

    Meditation Benches offered by the tree roots

    I invite you to talk to trees. If this is new for you, I invite you to attend an upcoming workshop where I will be teaching people to talk to trees at Tryon Creek State Park. Notice how gracious the trees are in welcoming you. Like this:cropped-img_5438-e1557301333904.jpg

    Or like this, as if their roots go to a lot of trouble to reach out for you:

    img_5434

    That looks pleasant and inviting for me! Here’s some other ones, a bit more staid, perhaps, but offering a lovely place to sit and meditate:

    img_5433

    However, there are also options offered by gracious human builders, and planted by people who care that you are comfortable:

    img_5431

    Could you enjoy a walk with me at Tryon Creek State Park? I can teach you to communicate with the spirits of Nature, the Devas of the forest. We can practice Talking with Trees, and learn to listen to know when they are talking back. We can hear the whisper of the wind in the back-lit branches, or celebrate the sweet bird calls from the upper perches of soft green-dressed limbs. And you can receive some healing from the heaven-reaching trees, or the grounding of Mother Earth beneath your feet. What better way to spend a day?

    Let me know if you would like to join me: 503-708-2911, or rosi@devacommunion.com.
