• SACRED EARTH RETREAT • {pt 2}
We have so much appreciation for everyone that showed up and weaved a day of skill sharing and heart sharing at the first Sacred Earth Retreat. Held near the summer solstice, we honored and celebrated the earth during the longest days of the year. It’s gatherings like these that are beautiful reminders of the foundation of our #openhearthpdc program: that everyone has something to share. Thank you, Sharri @terrasuraphotography + @minnesotaherbs, for your powerful ancestral wisdom. Thank you Clare @cgnherbalist for your deeply in tune flower communication, Sasha @alexandralouhiatar, for your birch loving heart and stories of your grandmother. Thank you Dustin @homegrown_land_design, for giving us the practical tools and understanding of the landforms. Thank you Paige @purposefulpoppy, for reminding us the importance of connecting with our bodies and Armel @armel.martin, for bringing your big, bright, community oriented spirit. And it was so special for Cody & I to have an opportunity to share some of our projects with you. Such an incredible day to reflect on! Love to you all.

Excited to celebrate and play and reconnect this Saturday at #willhealfarm in Oak Grove, MN for a mini retreat exploring the healing power of flowers. We will make a group Essence, enjoy movement, gentle yoga and connection in the yurt. Just a couple spots left! It’s going to be a beautiful day. willhealfarm.com
The presence and dedication of an afternoon black medic {Medicago lupulina} harvest. Black medic - also known as hop clover or hop medic - is a nitrogen fixer for the earth and a “cerebral circulant” for the body... sharpens the mind & eases frustration in accomplishing big tasks in any stage of life.. think making breakthroughs on potty training or cramming information for an exam or in working with those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. You only work with the flowering yellow tops so filling a small jar might take a few hours (!!!) but this will make an incredible tincture to add to the apothecary
