In this troubled time of social and environmental break down, it is more important than ever to slow down, open our eyes, and be present. Join us for a day of finding beauty and human connection with our neighbours at Our Place. Renowned artist and Morning Altars creator Day Schildkret will be teaching us a practice for blending art and nature to find a sense of belonging.
Day Schildkret is proud to bring his imaginative and inspiring work to Victoria with a workshop for the entire family and particularly for the kids! Earth Art is a perfect hands-on experience for families that is part creative expression, part mindfulness technique, and part nature connection. Slow down the whole family and open to a sense of wonder, listening, curiosity, creativity, meaning-making and letting go.
Certain climatic, social, political and spiritual upheavals have brought us to the crossroads, where we must confront ourselves. The vultures are circling overhead. We are beyond hope now. What do we do in this place? Where is our sanctuary?
Bayo Akomolafe articulates a different framing of activism and sense-making, of racialization, a queer vision of time, a disturbing account of embodiment, and an urgent need to slow down in times of trouble.
In this weekend workshop, participants are invited deeper into an exploration of dreamwork & belonging. Using her three-part process, Toko-pa will demonstrate how to approach a dream, making the encounter with the mysterious others within, honouring the wounds that shape us uniquely and moving through our impediments to embolden our creativity in the world.
Join us in person in Victoria or via livestream from anywhere, for an exploration of the soul’s journey through grief, loss and transformation.
Learn what’s happening at a soul-level when we lose something or somebody we love.
Meet loss as an initiation, so that instead of destroying us, it makes us stronger and more capable.
Understand the rites of passage that help us grow into the person the loss is asking us to become.
Elders are a sentinel species for humanness, and like other forms of life in our corner of the world they’ve mysteriously gone missing. Young people are, often involuntarily, looking for them, and they can’t find them. How about this: old people are looking for them too...Stephen is making the case for elderhood, not for easy agedness mostly by wondering what happened. Because something happened. Something happened to ancestors and elders and honour.
There’s work to be done, and there’s an old wisdom to be learned where there used to be the wisdom of old.
