“Besides the political impact of our food choices there is the also the opportunity for mindfulness. Mindfulness is one step and intention is another. Part of Gaia Weaving is the idea of knitting together our inner and outer world, putting a cohesive sense of philosophy and lifestyle into practice. We all have our weaknesses and blindspots but as we evolve, we strive to be consistent.”
-Cassandra Purdy

Many of the people I contact on a daily basis are striving to make a difference in the world. I have had the great blessing of working within a community of well intentioned people seeking to make transformations both inwardly and externally.

I feel overwhelmed with the forces that work to undermine the efforts of the green movement. In my view these forces include marketing strategists co-opting the Yoga community and turning it into another commodity to buy, use and dispose. The only solution for ecologically minded people is to be a better consumer -buy organic, buy solar panels, buy certain brands, turn off lights, cut water usage, buy a hybrid, recycle the things you buy. All of these things, while admirable, are still falling under the model of consumption. Clearly this is not enough. Better consumption practices only address the surface and do not affect the kind of change truly needed to support future generations.

Therefore, my dear friend Cassandra Purdy and I have been developing a program in collaboration with Whole System Design to re-empower people by steering them toward a lifestyle of green regeneration. Gaia Weaving, is a program designed to equip each individual with the skills and knowledge to tap into their own wellspring, this includes; growing and making herbal medicines, healing and avoiding illness through the nutritive power of food and herbs, affecting social change through non-purchasing power, planting designing and developing a multi-storied landscape of nutrition rich food in your backyard and enabling those who want to get off the grid with the skills and community to live a life free from dependency, if they so choose. This program is offered as either a relaxing informative retreat experience or a certification program.
For those who wish to deepen their knowledge and expertise Gaia Weaving will continue in five sequential levels. Upon completion of all five levels enrollees will receive a Gaia Weaving 100 hr. immersion certificate which can be applied toward the 300 hr. Lila Tandava Yoga TT 500 RYT certification. A 200 hr. certification is required to receive this advanced certification.

TO YOU
Walt Whitman

 

Whoever you are, I fear you are walking the walks of dreams,

I fear these supposed realities are to melt from under your feet 

 and hands, 

even now your features, joys, speech, house, trade, manners, 

         troubles, follies, costume, crimes, dissipate away from you, 

your true soul and body appear before me,

they stand forth out of affairs, out of commerce, shops, work, 
         farms, clothes, the house, buying, selling, eating, drinking, 

  suffering, dying. 

whoever you are, now I place my hand upon you, that you be my 

 poem, 

I whisper with my lips close to your ear,

I have loved many women and men, but iIlove none better than 

 you. 

O’ I have been dilatory and dumb,

I should have made my way straight to you long ago,

I should have blabb’d nothing but you, I should have chanted 

        nothing but you. 

I will leave all and come and make the hymns of you,

none has understood you, but I understand you,

none has done justice to you, you have not done justice to your-

self, 

none but has found you imperfect, I only find no imperfection in 

 you, 

none but would subordinate you, I only am he who will never 

     consent to subordinate you, 

I only am he who places over you no master, owner, better, God, 

  beyond what waits intrinsically in yourself

 

– Walt Whitman
