SPEAK WITH THE EARTH - RETREATS
Together with my spouse Julia Burkey, we offer eco-spiritual, embodied creativity, ritual, and wellness retreats in which we guide individuals and groups to attend to our relationship and conversation with the more-than-human world. Over the course of a half-day, whole-day, or up to of four days or more, we will dialogue and engage with the four classical elements (water, fire, earth, air) as they express themselves in the evocative landscapes of our world and through our bodies. We use creative writing, journaling, hiking/walking/wandering meditation, circle-work ritual format, mindfulness, movement, and dance to speak with the Earth.

Julia draws on the wisdom of the body to help us attune to how the Earth and Divine Spirit speak with us and through us.
