Thinking of studying Sacred Land in a group? Or delving more deeply into your own intuitive organic gardening practices? Here are a few study and discussion questions to help you get started.
Discussion Questions for Sacred Land
- What messages, sensations, and images do you receive when you "tune in" to the soil? Is doing a practice like this strange to you? What fears or concerns do you have about "talking" to dirt?
- What shifts for you when you consider a garden a co-creation with nature? What ideas germinate when you enter into such a relationship with the land?
- Many people first notice nature spirits or the energy of the land through trees. What sacred experiences with trees have you had?
- What can you do to increase the local and organic food you eat? As a group or a family, take it on as a project. If you already eat mostly organic and local, how can you help others do the same?
- Discuss your intentions for your home, garden, and community. How can you call on the power of air to bring these ideas into the world?
- Do you fear insects? Why? Take some time to get to know them better. What teachings have bees, dragonflies, and even mosquitoes taught you?
- What birds show up in your life regularly? Have they a message?
- Everything we see, eat, touch, and hear exists because of the sun. What happens when you meditate on this idea for a few moments?
- The fire goddess Chantico teaches us about pleasure and pain. When have you felt this keen edge? What has it taught you about life?
- What does it mean to you to reclaim your passion? How can you begin to do this?
