Creating a Local Wheel of the Year - for Regenerative Farmers
Time & Location
About the Event
In this workshop, hosted by Gemma Green (Creating Resilience), Julie Brett will present and lead a discussion on the wheel of the year, it’s adaptation to unique environments, helping participants to understand how they can develop one for their own local area. Wheels of the year help us not only to understand the unique cycles of the seasons, plants and animals, but also help us to align ourselves with the stories they represent, finding greater peace and inspiration within ourselves. In this introductory workshop, Julie will explore with us how we can learn to read nature symbolism and map it out over a year through creating nature diaries and making personal reflections, finding a deeper connection and understanding of the land each of us lives on. At the end of this workshop you will have an idea of how to go forward in creating a wheel of the year for your own area to help you find a deeper connection with the sacred landscape around you.
Recording: a video of this talk will be available to registered guests for one month after the event, so you don't need to be there for the live feed if you can't make it.
