Talk Description: The Alchemy of Change
This talk looks at our current beautiful shift into Holistic Consciousness, as we begin to embrace our sense of unity with all life, and how this is manifesting in both our personal lives and in our relationship with life around us; and our changing relationship with the Earth and ways we can explore new forms of communication and relationship between ourselves and the rest of life on Earth, once we drop our separation barriers. This Shift in Consciousness opens the way for receiving deep wisdom from the plants, the trees, the birds, animals and insects, and the rocks of our land, and taps into our sense of deep time and deep belonging. We are also able to peacefully enter into the Imaginal Realms and journey into our own inner world of deep wisdom, spirit guides and archetypes.
Each thought we have, everything we say, feel and do has resonance and is part of the whole and we are the creative alchemy of change and manifestation. The more we feel our interconnected selves, the more interconnections manifest!
We will explore ways to anchor this shift into our everyday lives, through simple, daily practice of loving kindness, affirmations, conscious intentions and personal rituals that help us to stand in our own truth with the interconnected dance with all life. Central will be our ability to consciously develop this shift in consciousness, and work with the natural and abundant flow of our life-force energy, to manifest the future and create the changes we wish to see happen, both personal, communal and global.

Illustrated with Glennie’s exquisite pencil drawings, her passion for trees is infectious, and she inspires us to look more closely, listen more intently and walk with trees more often. She shares her stories and encounters with trees and weaves together many ways to deepen our engagement with them: growing them, harvesting and using them for medicine and food, intuitive craftwork and meeting with them as part of our seasonal celebrations with Nature. She also encourages us to find our way into a more subtle relationship with the trees, as part of our journey to heal our fractured relationship with the Earth.
