Eco-Healing: Deep Ecology & Healing Ecology in the Tarkine Wilderness
An experience not to be missed! This is the experiential nature workshop of the year – for the Tarkine is like nowhere else on earth and an unforgettable experience!
One of the world’s greatest remaining wild rainforests and the largest temperate rainforest in Australia – 447,000 hectares of World Heritage significance in the North-West corner of Tasmania. Enter into an ancient slice of Gondwanaland, with over 60 species of rare and endangered species.
We enter the forests of myrtle, leatherwood and pine tree by foot, canoe and car, (you do not have to be very fit). Deep we go, exploring beyond the surface and immersed in the vast visual beauty, as we open and strengthen our connections with all beings and the spirit of the country and the energies that create an unique web of life in this ancient ecosystem dating back millenium.
We explore that human identity exists at the intersection of the ancient cycles of air, water and soil. In spite of the pervasive illusion of separation, in reality no separation is possible between nature and ourselves.
Arne Naess, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at Oslo University, suggested that what is needed are community therapies “healing our relations to the widest community, that of all living beings”. By acknowledging our interconnectedness we invite the spontaneous healing of the psyche.
In this workshop we participate in a series of processes and rituals informed by those used by indigenous peoples throughout time. Using personal sharing, experiential Healing Ecology – the two way process of healing the earth and the earth healing us – experiential Deep Ecology, exploration by car, foot and canoe and senses, we dissolve the separation between person and planet. Vision and empowerment arise naturally from realigning ourselves with the living Earth.
