The 5 Elements Model for Sustainability and Resiliency Workshops –

Deepening our Roots

Given the global changes that are occurring, we feel it is becoming more and more important that we deepen our roots and live a resilient and sustainable life. Using the “5 Elements Model – Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Ether”, we can do an audit on ourselves and our lives. This will help us better understand how our lives may or may not be sustainable, and we can then find ways to fill those gaps.  We will also explore ways that can increase our resiliency and ability to adapt to the changes and challenges. Identifying and knowing our personal skills and assets also holds an important place in this model. We will be working our way through each of the 5 elements applying it to the various areas of our lives – Self, In Home, Around Home, in our Community.

Our audit will include exploring areas such as the herbs, our gardens, foods – cultivated and wild, water and hydration, our homes, sleep and relaxation, heart-brain coherence, mindfulness, community building or finding your tribe, ceremony and so much more.

Date:: Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 9pm – Starting late this autumn!

Location: North Roots Herb Farm and Kim North’s home – near Port Rowan

Cost – $300*

Topics discussed include wild crafting and harvesting herbs, edible wilds, herbal medicine preparations, organoleptic pharmacology, plant identification, personal plant projects, plant consciousness/spirit medicine, group studies, and more! Although it is a field experience, the course will not only help one to learn about, as well as develop relationships on various levels with the plants in and around their garden and in the wild, but it is also about the real herbal medicine and that is herbs as a vehicle for a personal transformation and a healing journey inward. It is an exercise of learning to better trust one’s self. It is a beautiful process journeyed with like minded people.
