Our complex, rapidly changing world calls for diverse leaders who deeply feel the inherent interrelationship between all of life. The Weaving Earth Center for Relational Education fosters a learning environment that is inspired by contemporary insights and grounded in ancestral wisdom. Guided by nature, we endeavor to draw out the vital contributions we each have to make to the great work before us.
Humans and nature are part of an inseparable whole. By connecting deeply to the natural world, we remember ourselves as an interconnected part of the ecosystem; fundamentally interdependent and uniquely differentiated. This orientation awakens vision, empathy, compassion, belonging and creative genius—both personal and collective.
The ongoing health of community and ecology depends on the intergenerational transfer of knowledge, and the connection of every community member to themselves, to each other and to place. Training in connection-based mentoring supports participants to cultivate deep listening skills, facilitate and evoke curiosity & creativity, and incorporate practices that develop connection to self, community and place.
As humans, we have shaped and been shaped by our environments since the beginning. Now, as natural systems face increasing stress, we must ask: do our efforts follow nature's wisdom or defy it? Permaculture principles guide our response towards the health of the whole.WE’s team of professional Permaculture designers support participants to build capacity to understand and interrupt practices that have the planet at the brink of ecological collapse.
The ongoing health of community and ecology depends on the intergenerational transfer of knowledge, and the connection of every community member to themselves, to each other and to place. Training in connection-based mentoring supports participants to cultivate deep listening skills, facilitate and evoke curiosity & creativity, learn to facilitate group processes, and incorporate practices that develop connection to self, community and place.
Healthy human relationships are at the foundation of regenerative culture. Weaving Earth works with practices to empower self-awareness, deep listening and the capacity to think and act like a circle. As we pursue collective liberation, these tools help us to connect across difference and engage the patterns of power and privilege we encounter along the way.
Just as we can read animal tracks on the forest floor, so too can we track movements within our internal landscape—of behaviors, judgments, dreams and longings. Our ability to see the dance within calls forth our wholeness and gifts.
Inner Tracking skills support participants to activate personal gifts and visionLearn to nourish these gifts in self and others, and gain awareness and understanding of personal obstacles, and techniques for their transformation.
Our current era requires leadership that is born out of the maturation of the human spirit. Such leadership must be rooted in interrelationship, fueled by creative collaboration, deeply aware of historical patterns of oppression and considerate of the health and well-being of many generations to come. Community resilience emerges when leadership is sourced out of respect for the whole.
Creativity is far more than our capacity to make art. It is a key element to solving today's problems with different perspectives than those that generated them. When we open a channel for inspiration to move through us unhindered, emergent solutions and innovations are born. Pathways to creativity support participants to Deepen sensory awareness, intuition, and connection to creative source to engage in practices that cultivate an unmediated relationship with mystery, and improvise, adapt, and gain comfort with not-knowing.
