CONSTELLATION OF DISPELLING THE MYTH OF SEPARATION 

When: 20th March, 10am - 5pm 

Who is this for: For bridge builders, innovators and creatives 

 

How do we move beyond that which divides us? Gender, race, origin, disadvantaged groups, global elite, religion, politics - the ill health of separation shouts from every corner of this planet. How do we move beyond the myth of separation? 

As humankind faces unprecedented change and as our old stories crumble, nothing yet has fully emerged that the masses can connect with. How can we join together in a world of uncertainty and a radically shifting world?

Before the event, participants are invited to share the separation challenges they experience and the intention for the work will be taken from the input given.

THE ART OF FORAGING WORKSHOP 
DATE: 24th April 2021, 10am to 4pm

A wild opportunity; a one-day workshop to begin to learn the art and science of foraging in the beautiful valley of the Serra da Estrela. Wild food is abundant in Portugal. It is not only many times more nutritious than most of the food we buy but the act of foraging also connects us more deeply with the magic of our abundant earth. Wild food is a priceless gift from Nature we can all enjoy.

 

The day will be part experiential, taking time to meet the plants and rediscover our connection to the Nature through our relationship with them. It will also practical with a lot of time given to identifying, collecting and tasting the different plants. We will also discuss the many benefits of foraging and the nutritional content of the individual plants. From the workshop you will:

 

  • Start to uncover and/or deepen the connection between yourself and the natural world

  • Discover the benefits of bringing wild plants into your garden and kitchen

  • Become skilled at identifying some common edible wild plants you can find in your area

  • Learn the growing habits and timings of these useful weeds

  • Discover how to eat these common wild plants raw and cooked

  • Learn some medicinal properties of familiar weeds

  • Discover teas you can make from common plants

  • Take home full colour handouts of the most common plants

  • Enjoy a simple, delicious vegetarian lunch with some of the plants we will harvest ourselves.

 

The workshop will be in English.
