Workshops, writings, and social justice work are great, but the value of a healthy, respectful, connected neighbours cannot be overstated. Community is so important! I believe community should be inclusive and not cost money to be part of, so Earth Ethos community offerings are free, without financial exchange. If you “like” Earth Ethos on Facebook, you’ll see all community offerings, as well as gift economy workshop offerings.
A monthly Earth Ethos Peace Circle takes place in Dulwich Hill, Sydney. Sitting in an open circle together we collectively embody the Earth with a medicine wheel altar in the middle supporting open-hearted and grounded communion. Sharing stories during rounds of simple prompts and passing a talking piece, we learn from each other’s wisdom of lived experience. The next circle is April 27 at 4pm. Contact me if you are interested in participating so I can send you the address.
May 5 overnight marks the midpoint between equinox and solstice, the height of autumn. You’re invited to celebrate the season in a healing drum circle where the centrepiece of the circle (whether a person, tree, altar, object or intention) inspires the group’s intuitive drumming and receives healing. Please bring drums and other percussive instruments if you have them! We will meet in Peace Park in Asbury, which has a beautiful view on the top of a ridge and is a 20 minute walk from Ashfield station on May 5 at 3pm. (Wet weather back-up location is my house in Dulwich Hill.) Contact me with any questions.
An Earth Ethos drum journey facilitates meditative altered states through relaxation into the rhythm of the heart-beat. Like Earth Ethos Peace Circle, this is communal heart-work without financial exchange in Dulwich Hill. The most recent journey was April 3 at 7:30pm. Contact me with any questions.
