EarthPrayers Workshop: hosted by The Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain
September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Earth Prayers Workshop
EarthPrayers is a Qi Gong-inspired contemporary movement practice that serves as a mythopoetic prayer on behalf of our world in response to the dire predicament we are in individually, collectively and globally with regard to climate disruption. This embodied practice serves to ground, strengthen, and align the body-mind in service to Gaia by reclaiming the pathways of connection to our larger body, Earth so that we can live in the most meaningful way and serve as effective agents of change.
“Mark’s work is an active response to the call of these challenging times. He guides us through practices of the body, voice, and mind that facilitate personal healing and open us to a deeper relationship with our living planet, Gaia. Mark Jensen is a treasure for our time. I am grateful beyond words for the understanding and practices he has brought into my life and work.” ~Joanna Macy, environmental activist, and author
Mark Jensen is a Certified Qigong Instructor based in Santa Fe NM and has been teaching and practicing Somatic and Earth-based arts for over 35 years. The Earth Prayers Workshop is influenced by the teachings of the Western Alchemical Tradition, Daoism, and Earth-based traditions.
