Description

With the advent of Spring, in community we emerge from our winter hibernations to sow and plant anew…

Your Invitation

Join us! This unique Spring retreat unfolds into it's second year. Elaine Patterson and Karyn Prentice call upon nature’s Sacred Landscape to guide, inspire, and supervise us as we emerge from the dark depths of Winter into the gentle light of Spring. This retreat will help to prepare the ground that will enable you to sow the seeds of new potential and new beginnings for the months ahead.

Elaine and Karyn are drawing on their latest writings and thought leadership to invite you to step into Mother Nature and into what it means to be fully human. You will awaken your creativity, inner wisdom and agency to plant the seeds for new or renewed intentions, which will blossom over the coming months. New materials and new experiences will be offered to enrich you and which you can also propagate within your own practice.

Come prepared to reflect, design and create what is needed by you and from you so that you can plant and sow with courage, compassion and clarity. This is a companion to the “Autumn Equinox Retreat: Harvesting the Abundance” which focuses retrospectively on sorting the wheat from the chaff from the year’s harvest.

“When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring”.

Madeleine M. Kunin
