Ecofluency Autumn Equinox weekend retreat

Ecofluency Autumn Equinox weekend retreat & workshop: Rekindle your ability to communicate with Nature

Ecofluency is the science, art, and magic of two-way communication with the rest of Nature. We are all born with this skill, because humans are Nature, and this way of communicating exists beyond all languages.

By expanding our range of our sensory awareness, we can dialogue with any aspect of the more-than-human world. The principles are the same, whether you choose to converse with small plants or towering trees, tiny insects or large mammals, clods of compost or constellations of stars. Although many have forgotten how to use this ancient ability, ecofluency offers an opportunity to reclaim the power of this birth-right, to benefit all life. It allows access to the deeper knowledge and wisdom of Nature that is not often available to our everyday human minds.

Ecofluency is a critical skill for empowering physical, mental and emotional vitality, to grow beyond resilience into a dynamic state of thriving. It offers a key to unlock greater joy and harmony in our relationships with ourselves, other humans, and the rest of Nature.

Communicating with Nature lets us make more holistic and efficient practical decisions in all aspects of our lives: growing food, choosing a place to live, understanding the behaviour of wild or domestic animals, creating rituals and ceremonies for inspiration and abundance, expanding your professional work in ecological alignment, or healing traumas to grow spiritually and become whole. Human existence with other species depends on dialogue with them, as they call on us to co-evolve and create our future in alignment with Nature. The world is waiting – join the conversation!
