Earth Advocate Presents: Exploring the Courageous Heart with Borage
In challenging times, and perhaps now more than ever, the heart is an important guide. But what tools do we have to strengthen the heart muscle, create loving boundaries, and open to the depth of wisdom the heart provides?
The plants are tremendous teachers in this regard, and borage is known for helping us find the courage to speak our heart’s truth. In this daylong course, we’ll learn simple tools and techniques to connect directly with borage, as a direct relationship is the most empowering way to facilitate healing. We will seek to find out, as a group, what medicine borage offers for this time and place.
In this class, we will:
🐝 Experience heart coherence techniques
🌱 Discover the basic tenets of Earth Advocacy
🐝 Make a ceremonially prepared borage elixir to drink throughout the day
🌱 Learn how to make offerings to borage
🐝 Gain basic plant communication techniques
🌱 Take a guided journey to meet the Spirit of Borage
🐝 Make borage honey medicine together to take home
🌱 Partake in an hour long holotropic breathwork session called “Greenbreath” where we get to breathe with Borage
🐝 Share our experiences and learn from others’ experiences
Within a ceremonial container, we will make and drink a borage elixir throughout the day. Students will have to the opportunity to be with borage in different ways, including prayer, meditation and journeying, medicine-making, and plant-human breath exchange in a holotropic breathwork called Greenbreath (created by Pam Montgomery).
Students will also learn the basic tenets of Earth Advocacy, which include right relationship, sacred reciprocity, social justice, and collective healing.
At the end of the day, we’ll share our experiences, learn what common threads there are and see what seeds of inspiration we can take into the world together.
This course is for folks who are interested in creating a connection with borage, and those who aready know and love it. It’s recommended for activists, herbalists, nature/plant lovers, spiritual/holistic practitioners and anyone with a curious and open mind.
