Healing For The World

Facilitator: Chris Taylor

The world is crying out for healing. Divisions between peoples and a schism between humanity and the living planet are causing untold damage. Yet we intuitively know the More Beautiful World we are capable of. In this workshop, we will call to life a unique and vibrant ceremony to support Earth healing. In doing so we’ll learn together how to help restore the world to health and balance.

The modern world is crying out for healing. Separations forged in the era of colonialism and conquest have divided us for centuries now. The intricate interdependence between humanity and the Earth has been wrought asunder. And in the process, we have planted the roots of a spiritual crisis that risks separating us from our innate wisdom and purpose. These wounds have caused untold damage across the world and are keeping humankind from realising our true and highest potential.

Until these wounds heal, humanity will continue to harm itself and the natural living world. Bringing self, other and the whole back into a grounded and reverential connection will create the unity that is needed to restore the Earth to its abundant, verdant fullness.

In this one-day workshop, we will explore how ceremony can help to support healing for the world. We’ll work through the Laws governing ceremony, the phases and components of ceremony and its sacred purposes.

Working together we will conjure a collaborative ceremony that transcends models of religion which are themselves shaped by The Story of Separation. In the new paradigm, we are all Divine, we are all participants in the sacred work of healing and renewal. By collectively co-creating ceremony we can bring power and unity to our time together and build the unity of thought and deed needed for lasting change. In this way, we initiate ourselves as sacred activists engaged in bringing peace and balance to a troubled world.
