For Land Connection Practices, Michael Helland and Daniel Linehan propose activities in which you nurture the connection between your body and the earth, considering how our bodies are made from the same minerals, waters, and elements as this earth which is our home.
You will explore movement exercises that connect you to the dynamic surroundings, and awareness exercises that open up your senses and bring you toward full embodiment in the here and now, exercises that connect you to your breath as you allow the breath to nourish your sense of vitality. This is a chance to let go and receive your surroundings, as well as a chance to wake up and be enlivened by the energy of the other living beings around us. A forest is a place that responds to a basic human need to connect with the more-than-human, with the green trees and the blue sky and the wild beings that fly above and burrow below.
