Atlanta Earth Day: Sing for the Trees

Image and sculpture by Bruno Torfs http://brunosart.com/

First, thanks to YOU for checking this out, to Maurice LeCroyThe Human Community, the Plant Community: One Community, Present to Exquisite Relatedness, by 2021, for co-creating the event, and to the Australian sculptor, Bruno Torfs, for the image of his art. Springing from the heart of Susan Elizabeth Hale, EARTH DAY- SING FOR THE TREES is a global initiative to pause at Noon, April 22, and sing to the trees. Also at source: Earth Mother/Gaia/BlackMadonna, who finds humor in our naming of her, and who, in all seriousness, calls us to come together, in a moment of time, in acknowledgment and appreciation of plant life for so sustaining us. THIS WE CAN DO.

11:00 AM:

NOON:
SING FOR the TREES facilitated by Tom Blue Wolf: The South East was the apothecary of Native America; The Muskogee Creek were the pharmacists. Part of their intimate knowing of plants was their songs. Taught by his grandfather, who knew hundreds of these songs, Tom will lead us ceremonially into the song of the Willow Tree. We will gather together to chant/sing/croon/tune ourselves to the vibrational level for communicating a resonate “tone” with the tree people. This “tone” will be consistent with the creation story of our mutual interdependence with the tree people. Bring a sacred object for the community altar.

New Moon Nia – Dance Your Desires

Join us for a special Nia class in honor of the creative energies surrounding the new moon. This final new moon of 2009 brings together the light of the sun and the emotions and past of the moon into a fantastic opportunity to move full steam ahead with the blessings of the Divine. Each new moon opens the door to a new beginning. Dance and create today, for now there is an opening allowing us an energized and universally supported opportunity for growth!

During this gathering we will connect to and express our heart’s desires through movement, music, visualization and vocalization. Blending dance, martial and healing arts, our tool for exploring our senses, bodies and emotions is Nia. Nia is a barefoot practice which gently warms the body bringing it to a cardio work-out, then gracefully completes with cooling stretches. Wear clothing that expresses your unique beauty and that allows you to move freely. Please bring water for optimum hydration. Call Tamara (rhymes w/ sara) at 404.822.6952 with any questions.

Thursday, December 17th
7:30p-8:30p
