Come play and connect with our Earth with simple Earth tools – sticks and stones! Earthgym taps into our childhood passions of using outdoor play to learn from life. It’s a movement way of learning from our habitat. Sticks and stones are powerful, alchemical training tools that awaken and strengthen our bodies and open doorways to aliveness, creativity & joy. From these states of being, the Earth’s immense Qi comes pouring into our biggest musing tool, our body. It’s super fun and a great addition to one’s yoga, martial arts, dance or other movement practices. Join us at the Pacific Women’s Herbal Conference on Vashon Island, Sept 20-22, 2019.
