Rewilding the Soul: Spring Equinox (2024)

Rewilding the Soul: Spring Equinox (2024)

· April 11, 2024

What does it mean to be human in these times, when the sky, wind, air, rivers, oceans, soil, rains, trees, plants, and animals seem to be asking us to remember? When our bodies are asking? If you have sensed this call, if your heart is troubled by the state of our planet, if you feel overwhelmed with a sense of urgency, if you are seeking a way for these times, you are not alone.

Lama Willa Blythe Baker and Lama Liz Monson, in collaboration with the Council on the Uncertain Human Future, invite you to join us for Rewilding the Soul, an interactive series of gatherings in which we explore the deepest promise of our practice. This promise is not to soothe anxiety, nor to help ourselves find calm in the eye of the storm. The deepest promise of our practice is to attend to and transform our collective trauma and to encounter the truth of non-separation— that we have never been separate from what we wish to protect, or from the ones who have failed to protect it.

Rewilding the soul is inner work that helps us attune to the wisdom and love that are always flowing around and through us, the non-conceptual voices of the natural world that seek to draw us home to our deepest being, our core of deep compassion, kindness, and availability to extend ourselves to each other and the wider world.

Beginning with the Spring Equinox, we will gather online to reflect, meditate, and engage in the practice of council. Emphasis will be on developing a deep practice of wakeful awareness, fostering intimacy with the natural world, and building compassionate community together… an ecosattva path alive to possibilities emerging from deep presence.

What to Expect

This series centers around two practices of non-dual awareness: the practice of meditation in wild spaces and the practice of council. The first is attentional and embodied, the second is relational. Guided by our inner wisdom, we find our way into conversation with the natural world, our own non-conceptual field, and one another as we listen for signals as to what it means to grow into an awakened planet at this time.

Attendance of this online series is limited to 140 people, so we encourage you to register early.

Participation in this series includes

  • Seasonal gatherings (1.5 hours) four times per year with the entire Rewilding Sangha on the spring and fall equinoxes and the summer and winter solstices. These gatherings include teachings with Lama Willa and Lama Liz, collective rituals, songs, dances, and sharing.
  • Membership in a Home Council Circle (approximately 10 people) that meets once a month in the months between the seasonal gatherings to deepen into emergent collective wisdom (see dates below; 1.5 hours on Thursdays, 7:00-8:30 pm ET). Monthly Home Council Circle begins with a pre-recorded 15-minute guided meditation practice offered by Lama Willa or Lama Liz, followed by Council.
  • Discounted Live Online Access to the annual Green Dharma Retreat (June 26-30) at a 30% discount. In-person attendance is possible and encouraged (registration not included), but space is limited.
