with Shannon Neufeldt
Cahoots is all about taking a pause from our everyday lives to rejuvenate and retool, rest and relate. This workshop invites you to deepen that focus by reconnecting with the Earth. We’ll begin in a collected fashion to learn from Indigenous wisdom together. We’ll then disperse across the camp to engage in a personal (or family/partnered) SACRED Pause. This simple practice uses the words Sense, Appreciate, Connect, Respect, Express, Delight (SACRED) to guide us in remembering or discovering how to be in relationship with creation – a relationship of love and respect. Some guiding questions will be provided to assist you in connecting with Mother Earth. A closing circle will be offered for those who wish. If you like to write or draw as you reflect, bring a journal and pen but this is not necessary. Everyone should be prepared to be outside. Suitable for all ages and abilities. This workshop is based on a resource by the same name put out by For the Love of Creation.
