Join Laurie and the Gaia School of Healing & Earth Education for a COUNCIL OF ALL BEINGS!

The COUNCIL OF ALL BEINGS is a series of re-Earthing rituals created by Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy and rainforest activist John Seed to help us move beyond a human-centric approach to the natural world. Many of us feel disconnected or alienated from the living Earth. This workshop will renew the spirit and connect participants with deep sources of joy and inspiration.

Through interactive exercises, the COUNCIL OF ALL BEINGS helps dissolve the illusion of separation from the soil, water, air, animals, and plants. Retracing our steps through an evolutionary journey allows other life forms to speak through us: to our hearts, minds, and bodies. We shed our human identities and feel deep empathy for the myriad species and landscapes of the Earth.

The COUNCIL OF ALL BEINGS also offers tools for practicing Deep Ecology in our daily lives. As many participants in this work have discovered, alignment with our planetary self can clarify, dignify, and heal our personal conflicts. We come to see that the pain of the Earth is our own pain. The fate of the Earth is our own fate. Thus, the COUNCIL OF ALL BEINGS empowers us to act on behalf of the Earth and gives our daily lives clarity and direction.

* Bring a cushion or low beach chair for sitting
* Bring a mug and a journal for our Plant Meditation
* We will be outside, so please bring a sun hat, water and anything else you may need to be comfortable.

We look forward to our time together.


The Gaia School of Healing & Earth Education was founded in 2000 by Sage Maurer in Boston, MA. With branches in Vermont & Southern California, we offer a variety of courses and workshops in green medicine, earth magick and holisitic healing on both the West and East coast of the US, as well as in Costa Rica, Hawaii and Ireland. Both branches of the school offer a 10 month Sacred Plant Medicine Apprenticeship in folk herbal healing, plant spirit medicine, holistic healing, earth – centered spirituality, and sacred journeying with plant devas and earth spirits. Through our work in the gardens, wilderness and in our communities, we seek to nourish the connection to Self, Spirit and the Earth.
