The Language of Nature

An Introduction to the Gaian Tongue

Our Mother Earth is intelligent, sentient, and always communicating with us. Learning to interpret the language of nature can make us excellent herbalists by upping our ability to source directly from our earth for healing wisdom. This class will help you develop the basic building blocks of an ancient nature vocabulary based on symbols, archetypes, elements, signatures, and myths so that you can better decipher earthly wisdom and live in balance with all our relations. Join Deep ecologist Jolie Elan as we align with the powers of nature and orient ourselves within the Four Fold Path and Web of Life. Together we will explore a holistic framework for deepening our rapport with Nature, self, and spirit.

In this introductory class we cover:

  • How nature speaks to us in symbols and signs
  • How to attune to the language of nature
  • The Four Fold Path
  • Universal cycles of nature, medicine, and health
  • Building our personal maps to holistically orient us with the great web of life.
  • Growing spiritual relationships with medicine plants
  • Animal archetypes and how to work with them

"Thank you for this deep connecting workshop💖 It was the first of its kind for me and the first I ever heard of. Your approach and practice are unique and resonate with my heart and way of living from the heart. I will have to watch the recording as the meditation you began with is beautiful and empowering, reconnecting us with nature in a way that raises our awareness and awakens the senses. What you taught touched my soul. Thank you for imparting your wisdom!" (Toronto, October 13th, 2020) The above paragraph is what I sent Jolie in an email and she asked me if she could publish online. I think I never got the chance to answer because I was too busy... and more than a month after I found she died... At least I know she read my feedback on how it was for me to be live with her online and experience it. What she never knew was that the first tree through which Mother Nature shared wisdom with me was... an Oak... a very old one in a park in Toronto area... I am not a herbalist. I am a Soul learning to reconnect with the divinity below our feet and above the ground, all through our body and heart. I am grateful I was guided and others were guided to guide me to find Matthew and Jolie and widen my awareness and live more fully in the NOW.
