I’m excited about this Summer in The Tulsi Rose Garden! I just finished this video from clips from the last 2 years in the garden. It’s been such a trip to see what the garden welcomes and who shows up. This July & August is all about collaboration and building community. Potlucks, women’s circles and plant spirit journeys.
Community Workday and Potluck Saturday, May 26 10-4
This is the critical time of year when everything is growing so fast! It is my hope that this garden brings people together in the spirit of love & peace. . . and learning how to live and work together, men and women side-by-side in peace and harmony. Come practice these team building skills in our community by bringing your joy to the garden, getting her ready for the year. Projects include weeding and edging, mulching the lavender ring, preparing the tulsi beds and gridding the rose ring with garnets. Be sure to bring your bathing suit along, if it’s a hot day, the river may call. (and if there’s one thing I learned from my grandmother, it was to always keep your suit and a towel in your car, cause you never know when you might get the chance for a swim)
Meditation & Potluck Sundays in July & August
We’ll have weekly potlucks on Sundays with a short meditation just before, starting at 6:00. . . all are welcome. . . come for the meditation, just the potluck or both. Potluck will start at 7:00.
Part of the work that I do in the world is to hold space for women to heal and share our stories to empower each other. As a CranioSacral Therapist and energy healer I work with women to heal the emotional wounds of the past and write new stories to replace the habitual ones we constantly repeat to ourselves everyday.
Sing Your Sacred Soul Song July 28 & August 25
I’ll offer 2 one-day workshops, Saturday July 28 and August 25. This is a time to come nurture yourself with the energy of the garden. We will reflect through writing and meditation and move some energy with vocal chakra activations to clear stuck energy and create more space for your authentic voice to come through. Please email me at email@example.com if you would like to register for this workshop or have any questions.
Goddesses in the Garden 7 Sundays July 8- August 19
This 7-week series is for women to connect with our intuition by learning to listen to the plants, sitting in a supportive sister circle and sharing some meditative mindfulness practices together. We will learn how to take care of ourselves while we also learn to care for the plants and create teas together. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to register for this workshop or have any questions.
Red Tent Temples July 14 & August 19 2-6pm
We (myself and other sisters) will be holding space for two Red Tents this summer near the new moons. From the http://redtenttemplemovement.com website:
The Red Tent Temple Movement is a way for women to take our inner momentum, that feeling like the time is now and come forward with everything we are as women and give us a place to incubate, dream, slow down, and not have an agenda or plan. Simultaneously much is waiting for us in this not knowing place, but we need to make time for the empty space. It is also not only empty space, but woman space where we can share stories, laughter, songs, food and honor our unique cycles that we experience each month in our bleeding time and in our going through menopause and the many years leading up to it.
There is no registration for this event. . . just come on by. . . donations are always welcome, but this is meant to be easily accessible to any woman.
Tulsi Plant Spirit Journey Sunday August 19 with Sulis & Hannah Jacobson-Hardy
We will spend the afternoon sharing the wisdom of Tulsi. Hannah and I will teach about all of the wonderful beneficial medicinal properties as well as experiencing her through sipping tea, tasting her leaves, observing or drawing, and meditating and journeying with her. Together we will make some medicine with Tulsi. Email Sulis at email@example.com to register.
I look forward to seeing you in the garden this summer!!!
