Visionary Ideas and Practical Applications for
Healing the Earth—Healing Ourselves

a workshop with Julian Barnard & Marko Pogacnik

Memorial Day weekend
May 28-30,2004
The Berkshires
Great Barrington, MA

“It is only because we have forsaken Nature’s way for man’s way that we have suffered, and we have only to return to be released from our trials. In the presence of the way of Nature disease has no power; all fear, all depression, all hopelessness can be set aside. There is no disease of itself which is incurable.”
— Edward Bach
“ Since February 1998 the Earth has accelerated her cycles of change. We people of the Earth and universe are also urged to accelerate our own processes of change. The purpose of my work is to help along both avenues of change. I try to provide useful insights into the cycles of change, and create possibilities for fellow human beings to become creative interactors with the flow of Earth changes.”
— Marko Pogacnik

The earth is changing. So are we. Toxicity and pollution, loss of countless plant and animal species, water shortages, and ecological and natural disasters permeate the earth. Stress and depression are everywhere, new diseases and viruses threaten us, and across the globe there is enormous suffering from poverty, starvation, and war. All these call out for the need for transformation. One answer is in attending to the intelligence and wisdom of nature. The earth is a living, spiritual being, with a body, soul, and spirit—just as we are. By returning to nature with a new consciousness and finding new ways of communicating with the healthy living forces and beings in nature, we can begin the gradual ascent to a new earth, a new nature, a new humanity. But to do this, we must learn to think, see, and feel in a new way.

• Learn how to read the gesture of an individual plant
• Exercises in perception
• Learn how to work with nature forces and beings
• Learn how the flower essences are prepared and how they work on the human being
• Learn to become sensitive to the intimate relationship between the human and nature realms

Star of Bethlehem—
