Late Summer Earth Gathering
The Nomad is Always Home
Hey, welcome home. Now, what on earth do we mean by that?
Sometimes the moment we say the word home, we feel a kind of pain inside. Why? Because there is a healthy place inside of us that knows exactly what “home” means, but we are having some difficulty matching that healthy feeling on the inside with something in the outside world.
I suggest that some of the people who are most at home, and know best what the feeling of home is, are nomads. Nomads do not attach their sense of home to an external place. Their sense of home is a felt relationship to both movement and settling. It is a state of satisfaction in an interrelationship with where they are in their own tent, and in their own body.
We are at a time, globally, where we need to give up small, entitled, rigid notions of comfort and home—which absolutely does not mean giving up notions of comfort and home! Comfort is great. Home is great. We need those experiences. But we are ready to be freed into a much more reliable and genuinely centered relationship to “the comforts of home.”
There is a state of being a nomad that makes “home” an internal responsibility for creating relationships to where we are. It’s time for that exploration of what “home” really means.
Please note, it is not recommended that participants divide their focus by taking extensive notes. In order to allow participants to relax into the discussion, we will make an audio recording which will be shared only with participants. The purpose of the recording will be to remind participants of what they learned. The recording will not be available for those who were not present in the class.
Due to attendees being in very different time zones, there is no “lunch break” per se. Class breaks will be 20 minutes long, and they will occur every 60-90 minutes or so. It is suggested that attendees whose natural lunch hour will occur during class time should make their lunch ahead of time so that it is ready to eat during the first 20-minute break.
Students will earn 5.5 NCCAOM-approved PDA Points (AOM-OM).
In the (very rare) event of a workshop cancellation, all tuition will be refunded.
Otherwise, any refund is at the sole discretion of Perennial Medicine.
