Dandelion

Workshops descriptions:

Dancing with the Land

Feel yourself moved by the land around you. Explore rhythms and patterns existing in nature. Find those rhythms within your own body. In this workshop we will get outside and dance with the land. By combining solo and group activities based around movement and reflection, we will experience this sacred conversation with all of life. This workshop can be catered to experienced dancers as well as those with no dance experience at all.

Our Wild Essence

Have you ever wondered about how our culture uses the word wild? So often, wild has a negative connotation. It is used to mean unruly, inappropriate, or out of control. In this workshop, we will reclaim the word and the meaning. We will explore our wild selves in relation to the beauty and mystery of the wild world. We will combine time alone with group activity as we embark on this important exploration. We will draw from work in the arts, ecopsychology, natural history, experiential education, and sense of place.

Place-based Spirituality

Often people feel the need to travel to exotic places in order to feel a spiritual connection to the world around them. While these places can indeed be magical, it is imperative that we be able to sense the sacred in the world right outside our doors. Through various activities focusing on communication and connection with nature, opportunities for reflection, and group discussion, we will re-connect with the life force moving through everything, everywhere.

The Nature of Creativity

Our creative patterns can often be a mystery to us. The muse may strike at odd or inopportune times. Some of us work slowly and steadily on a project while others my work more intensely for short periods of time. Through various outdoor, arts-based activities, this workshop will allow participants to explore the creative cycles in nature and find them reflected within. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of their own natural rhythms of creativity and a deeper sense of appreciation for the rhythms of creativity in the world around us.

Deep Connection (4 part series)

This four part workshop will allow participants to delve deeply into their connection with themselves, the earth, the other animals, and the spirit world. Combining group and solo activities from the arts, sense of place, sensory awareness, natural history, animal and nature communication, shamanic-style journey work, and ecopsychology, the layers of cultural disconnect will be unraveled, leaving us with a sense of our authentic connection to the rest of the world.

Cost: Following a free, 20 minute consultation phone call, Deb will email a written proposal based on workshop length, location, number of participants and other workshop details.
