This course will deeply explore Harmonic Resonance, which is an aspect of “Spiritual Ecology”. Harmonic Resonance is based upon the perennial wisdom traditions of our ancestors. The age-old knowledge, that all plants, animals have attendant “intelligences”. Subtle beings who are responsible for the well-being of the Vegetable realm. Who, in the old traditions of Europe, were called “Faerie”.

Faerie is an evolution in its own right. Ranging from the great Angels of mountains, down to individual Nature-spirits for each plant.

We human beings can learn how to communicate with Faerie. Of what ecological value is this? Of immense importance, because the denizens of Faerie are the “managers and directors” of the Vegetable realm – which generates our planet’s atmosphere – without which nothing could live.

This is where Spiritual Ecology comes in. When two different life-streams (Human and Faerie) cooperate together, becoming united by affection. And that affects the outcome. Affection causes plants to flourish. Love heals and enriches – because love is alchemical. David Goddard will be teaching us those sacred ways to heal Nature – to restore Eden!
