Reconnection Rites: Love, Land and Leadership with Benedick
SATURDAY | 12:00 – 13:30 | USHTI KUSHTI
Drawing upon influences including the work of British elder Mac Macartney, Jon Young’s 8 Shields mentoring model, and insight/mindfulness meditation, Benedick has developed a framework for workshops of deep remembering and leadership, where participants connect meaningfully with their environment and their way of expressing love for this Earth. After delivering it in small gatherings, in 2023 he is bringing it into the beautiful woods of Noisily. This workshop will remind us that there lies meaning in cultivating a sense of belonging to our lands and making efforts to remember our tribal customs, and to communicate with our forest teachers, the trees. It is based around the principle of the Children’s Fire… come prepared for walking, listening, sketching, singing and music making!
