First Spiral

Become a Daughter/Son of Mother Earth

Awakening into Her Presence, Love and Wisdom

The first spiral is about remembering our relationship with Mother Earth and Her nature and rhythms. How to find our deep connection, gratitude, love and our own rhythm with Her. As we heal and remember we can begin to feel ourselves being from Her, a part of Her and all our natural surroundings. We will experience the main elements and seasons here in Avalon and the surrounding natural beauty and environment. You will also be encouraged to connect deeply with your land where you live and the energies of it. We are encouraged to have fun and commune with Her in Her nature and learn how to grow, nurture and care for plants/herbs alongside caring for ourselves with the energy of the seasons.

When we remember that we are Her children, we begin to see ourselves differently in relationship with Her. We see ourselves not only from but of earth, not just visitors. First Peoples of Earth carry this earth wisdom and we can also gain a greater understanding of our connection and interdependence with all of life here on earth.

Aspects of Mother Earth

In this First spiral training you are invited to deepen your relationship with Mother Earth and to access earth wisdom which has been forgotten due to seeing ourselves as separate from Her and forgetting Her natural patterns and rhythms and our connection with that through our own rhythms. This is an offering to dance on Her land, embrace Her trees, immerse in Her waters, breath in Her air more deeply, let go in Her caves, feel Her presence in all Her embodiments including ourselves. We can heal our relationship with Her and remember how to nurture the earth and be nurtured whilst growing gratitude for all that She gives. We accept the invitation to awaken into Her presence, love and wisdom by experiencing throughout Her seasons for ourselves. Guests will be invited to share their expertise and service of Mother Earth, such as activists, healers and teachers.
