The heART of Ritual
'I thought the earth remembered me,
she took me back so tenderly,
arranging her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds.
I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed,
nothing between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths
among the branches of the perfect trees.
All night I heard the small kingdoms
breathing around me, the insects,
and the birds who do their work in the darkness.
All night I rose and fell, as if in water,
grappling with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times
into something better.'
~ Mary Oliver
The BIOPHILIA Mentorship™ is an intimate one to one program that focuses on sustainable earth based practices, natural healing, eco-psychology, the energetics of BEing, wildcrafting, prayer expression, and much more. As it is a personal mentorship, it is unique to you - we work to your own speed and focus on the areas that interest you the most. We cover both theory and practical aspects of what we explore, and journey the natural cycles, seasons, and their prevailing elements throughout the Celtic wheel of the year.
BIOPHILIA Mentorship™ runs for either 12 (once monthly) or 24 sessions (twice monthly). Each session is done via Skype and offers a maximum of 3hrs of personal time per session. Sessions close with three nature based exercises for you to complete both at home and outside.
It is recommended that your sessions are spread over the full wheel of the year (all four seasons). Each mentorship cycle begins in November, coinciding with the Celtic New Year. Just three mentorship places are awarded each year.
To apply for the next cycle BIOPHILIA Mentorship™, please get in touch and let us know why you wish to apply, the areas you'd like to develop further in your personal life expression, and how you feel you will benefit from this mentorship program. Based on this, we will then schedule an informal interview/chat, and your application for mentorship will be considered in full from there.
