Faerie Village Building Day Camp- July

Once upon a time, a happy community of faeries and gnomes lived joyfully together among the oaks at Gaia Wisdom School. Life was grand. They ate nuts and greens for dinner and sipped honey for dessert. When it got dark, they danced with the lightening bugs ‘til their feet hurt. Then they would fall into their mossy beds, holding tiny pajama parties under the mushrooms near the stream where the moon reflects in the water. In the daytime they played, unless there was work to be done. They often collected unusual pieces of bark, or seeds, feathers, and grasses, or a million other wild and special things found in the forest. These things they used to make their clothes and build their homes. Their homes were lovely, and because they were made of natural things, they blended into the forest perfectly!

    Weathering Life’s Storms

    Throughout our lives, we weather several storms - some big, some small. Somedays we are weathering storms all day long which lead to a sense of overwhelm, fatigue, and disconnection. In today's guided meditation you will visit these storms and reform your relationship to them. Gain new perspective, deeper wisdom, and learn what these storms are here to teach and how they are to shape who you are becoming. We may never escape the storms that come our way but we can clear the path to allow the water to flow effortlessly and traverse the landscapes better equipped.
