Join Ayah for a heartwarming 3 hour long practice to creatively explore how we can integrate our ecological concerns and love for the mother earth in a daily practice. Derived from spiritual teacher Thich Nhat Hanh’s poetry and writing “Love letter to the Earth”. The goal of the workshop is to strengthen mindfulness as well as ecological activism through dance, yoga, sufi whirling, and nature ritual.

Ayah continues to inspire graceful movement and kinetic awareness in the practice of her peers. Learn more at www.divinehealingmovement.com

“Love Letter to the Earth is Thich Nhat Hanh’s passionate appeal for ecological mindfulness and the strengthening of our relationship to the Earth. Rejecting the conventional economic approach, Thich Nhat Hanh shows that mindfulness and a spiritual revolution are needed to protect nature and limit climate change.”

“Dear Mother Earth,

I bow my head before you as I look deeply and recognize that you are present in me and that I’m a part of you. I was born from you and you are always present, offering me everything I need for my nourishment ad growth. My mother, my father, and all my ancestors are also your children. We breathe your fresh air. We drink your clear water. We eat your nourishing food. Your herbs heal us when we’re sick.”
