Talking To Trees 2

Talking To Trees 2
negotiating the wuzzy line between humans and the more-than-human world

Tuesday evenings
June 6, 13, 20, 27
Location: 4711 Raymer Road, Kelowna, BC
Cost: $200
Contact: Lori Mairs

Notice how we talk about ‘saving the environment’ as if we’re not a part of it?

Dr Suzanne Simard (How Trees Talk To Each Other) and German Ecologist Peter Wohlleben (The Hidden Life of Trees) tell us how plants communicate, how plants have relationships with each other and how they do all this through biologic systems and electrical fields. But plants don’t just communicate with each other, humans also have electrical fields and biologic systems and it’s through these subtle states that we can enter the field of companionship with the more-than-human world.

These four evenings are an introduction to the kinds of relationships that are available between humans and the more-than-human world. Lori will provide practical tools, exercises, homework assignments and a guided experiential inquiry to help you move into an alliance with nature.

    Great course! Looking forward to the next 3 nights!

  2. Usually, I’m at peace with my “home-bound” MS situation. Then, a stab of regret comes when I read about the opportunity to be with others who loved the fascinating book “The Hidden Life of Trees”, and are (like me) deep into exploration of “the more-than-human world”.
    Enjoy the evenings, you lucky puppies!
