Earth Day Invitation
On the 50th anniversary of Earthday, the Womxn’s Dreams’ research team shared their responses to this invitation, designed to help us connect with nature and listen to our deeper intuitions.
Although our research involves systematic analysis of art, writing and forest therapy, we also know that the seeds of re-awakening are contained in the untamed zones of direct connection with the earth, our dreams, intuitions and the feelings that arise within us. This invitation was designed to help us connect with that wild place.
The responses showed a welling up of gratitude, grief and yearning. This process is meant to stimulate creativity and intuition, and so responses in various levels of polishedness, ranging from messy and intuitive observations to fully developed creative impulses are encouraged.
Some members of the womxn’s dreams research team brought images back to the group (see below). Others created video or wrote; follow these links to see their work.
