9:00 AM-10:45 AM Communication with Nature Basics. Overcome separation, human dominance. You might have seen plants and insects as their instrumental value only, what they meant for our purposes and ego. Now become aware of what you don’t like or are afraid of. Start to appreciate their intrinsic value, for their own purposes, their ecological niche. Learn to admire them. Cultivate mindful awareness, being present with what is.
11:00 AM-1:00 PM Communicate with the Wisdom of Trees. Learn what science has taught us about the intelligence in plants. Then, building on the Nature Communication Basics, find a tree that calls to you. Learn to use your heart and mind in unity, in awe and wonder at its beauty, majesty, magic, and wisdom. Notice how appreciation opens up the channel of two way communication.
