Holistic Gardening Workshop

About the Workshop

Holistic Gardening is simply being respectful towards yourself and your environment. Through living by this principle, we are able to strengthen our mind, body and spirit and of course to create gorgeous and abundantly gardens. 

 

In this workshop we will deepen our relationship with nature and ourselves. We will feel how the web of life unfolds itself in nature and how we are part of this. In the first part of this workshop we start with a 5 Elements Meditation to connect ourselves with the 5 primal elements of nature: Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Ether. Through this active meditation we can feel the essence of our being and connect from there with each other and nature. We will put our intentions in to the fertile soil of Mother Earth by planting several seeds. We will connect with the healing powers of trees and eventually end this first part with 3 breathing exercises to energize ourselves.

 

In the second part of this workshop we will go through some essential basic theory about Holistic Gardening. Then we go in the garden and see how this theory can be put into practice. We will observe nature and interact. Tune in to the rhythm of nature and let our intuition guide us. Being present with ourselves and the garden, feeling the harmony and peace that exist within each moment. To close this workshop we will dive into the world of Aromatherapy and create all our own unique blend with several essential oils.
