Lapis Sky – Spring Mini Retreat
Saturday, April 30, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$65.00
Soak in the natural light, pine views, and radiant floor heat of the beautiful Harmony Woods Retreat Center as we spiral inward and attune our senses to the subtle patterning of a wild medicinal plant ally.
In this one-day mini-retreat, we will tend to our internal waters by drawing inspiration from the plant Cleavers, Galium aparine.
People often notice this humble little plant with a velcro-like surface when they find it sticking to their clothing upon return from a walk. While spindly and small in nature, spring Cleavers can make a big impact on a range of conditions that afflict the inner waters of the body including the lymphatic system, kidneys, urinary tract, and the skin. The soothing quality of Cleavers provides dynamic support for our spring emergence by gently clearing areas that may have become stuck both physically and energetically in the body.
During our time together we will deepen our understanding and appreciation for this remarkable plant by examining its core patterns, growing preferences, and overall energetic signature. We will experience this through:
• meditation, focused breath, and sacred story
• sensory exploration of the plant (wildcrafted spring tonic)
• kinesthetic learning of plants through a somatic movement practice called WildCore™
We will enjoy a light lunch after the offering followed by personal time to explore the beautiful James T. Slavin Conservation Area. Located just 1 mile from the Retreat Center, the Slavin property is comprised of 628 acres of ponds, upland pine and fir forests, wetlands, and grassy meadows.
Harmony Woods Retreat Center is six minutes South of Spokane.
