Conversations with Gaia

with Dr Louise Livingstone & Jay Livingstone

Saturday 22nd, 29th May, 5th, 12th June 2021. 10am – 12noon (UK time) via Zoom

Cost £45

This course is inspired by the theme of Robin Wall Kimmerer’s wonderful book Braiding Sweetgrass (2013) that encourages us, through indigenous teachings, to see the world as a gift. Innate within the energy of gift lies relationships, and the notion of reciprocity. In turn, at the heart of relationship and reciprocity lies openness, love, understanding, give and take, and, conversation. 

Conversation, in this course, is framed as a dynamic dialogue with the world, opening up through the heart (the organ of the imagination) towards the world as it speaks to us through images. In this sense, we require a different order of perception – the imagination. An imaginal mode of consciousness is a way of knowing that honours inner intuitions and sensory experience, made possible through imaginal approaches. By opening up to these approaches, it becomes possible for us to develop a relationship with the world, and open the possibility for everything to come alive – to be ensouled. In this framing, the world is no longer a dead collection of objects, but a “communion of subjects” (Wendell Berry). In turn, the world expands into the possibility of becoming the living, breathing Goddess Gaia.

Husband and wife, Jay and Louise Livingstone, have been consciously communicating with Gaia for well over two decades – in particular through stone, crystals, and plants. Listening deeply to Gaia through their hearts, they have been guided on journeys that have taken them all across the UK, and onwards to the mysterious islands of Malta. Over 4 weeks, Jay and Louise will open the possibility for participants to develop their own conversations with Gaia through imaginal methodologies including Goethean enquiry, Heart Sense, and other imaginal approaches including guided meditation/contemplation and drumming.
Week one – Conversing with Stone/Crystal
Week two – Conversing with Plant
Week three – Guided imaginal journey to a sacred site – conversing deeply with Gaia
Week four – Re-turning; reviewing our journey
£45 for 8 hours. Early booking is advised.
