How do we harmonise the complexities of being human whilst honouring ourselves as beautiful beings of nature?
This episode is part of our collaboration with ‘Noisily Festival - Mind, Body and Soul’, where we explore the theme ‘We Are Nature’. This LIVE panel took place on 12th June 2021 as part of the Avebury pilgrimage.
In this episode Amisha shares a conversation with Charlotte Pulver (E124), a modern day alchemist, Chris Park (E141), an active member of the order of ‘Bards, Ovates & Druids’, prolific beekeeper, enthusiastic storyteller and folklore wisdom keeper, Jimena Paratcha (E140) mother, community leader, conscious entrepreneur and horsewoman with 20 years of working in the social justice sector and Bruce Parry (E5) explorer, documentary filmmaker, author and indigenous rights supporter.
Together they embarked on a beautiful pilgrimage in Avebury exploring how we can recognise ourselves as beings of nature and harmonise the complexities of being human by reconnecting with nature’s essence, its rhythms and wisdom.
They share their insights into reasons why we have become disconnected from nature and the impacts this has on our humanness, cultures, communities, and on nature itself. We hear how we can honour our collective sense of grief and trauma that is offering the opportunity for us to find new ways to reconnect back to our land and our heritage. They reveal profound personal experiences and teachings from different cultures that have broadened their understanding of nature and inspired personal practices of connecting to their inner universe and their surroundings more empathetically.
They explore how we can form ceremonial rituals and ways of life that awaken and ground our Youths in a sense of being that instills a knowing that we are part of something greater than ourselves.
We learn that pilgrimages afford us spaces where we can step into meaningful, spiritual, liminal experiences where magic happens, where we can be inspired and marvel at the world and open ourselves up to receive the medicines of nature’s abundant gardens for restoration, transformation and belonging.
