In these interesting times, Mother Gaia is calling us to remember the sacredness of all around us, including her as our Planetary Caretaker. Our gardens are not only therapeutic spaces but where we can most intimately rekindle a deeper relationship and reverence for all life around us - so needed at this time.

Come join us for a deeply restorative weekend of healing and sacred connection. We will tap into Gaia's wisdom and learn practices that will encourage us to infuse your gardening and our lives with a deeper sense of love and connection with all that we do and all around us.

You will learn about connecting with the spirit of the land, sacred gardening practices and planetary healing. This workshop sources from Mare Cromwell's over 23 years of studies with Native American teachers and other spiritual mentors and her direct communications with Mother Gaia, the nature spirits/elementals, trees and more. Mare has been told by one gifted Native American elder that her work with Mother Gaia is in the prophecies. Another gifted elder called her the "Voice of Earth Mother".

“Mare Cromwell is not a mere person, she is an experience; a living, breathing manifestation of the love of Mother Gaia herself. She is the Shield Priestess of Gaia – a woman on a sacred mission to teach others to embrace their Divine center connected to Gaia within themselves." - K.H.

The workshop will focus on:
- Who is Mother Gaia
- Gardening as a Sacred Dance
- Deepening your relationship and awareness of life around you
- Honouring the Spirit of the land, including the Nature Spirits
- How to bless your garden in early spring and late fall
- Your garden as an altar
- Using Sacred/Holy Water in your gardening practice
- All Our Relations approach to gardening (including the 'weeds'!)
- Intuitive gardening
- Gaia as teacher and healer, and more.

Cost is NZ $185, with optional koha donation at the end of the retreat.
