Life is exactly like a garden, it’s the space where you are free to create anything imaginable. You plant your wishes and ideas like seeds in the soil. It is where you cultivate your goals, passions and whatever you want to grow and transform in your existence. The only person capable of caring for your garden is you. In this personal growth workshop we are going to start from your roots to find your connection with nature through meditation.
If the weather allows we will spend some time outside in the beautiful garden working on your Root Chakra, which provides the foundation on which you build your life. The Root Chakra supports you in growing and feeling safe, anchoring your positive energy. When it is imbalanced the things that you are building cannot be stable, like the foundations of a house.
Our yoga teacher Martina will then guide you to ground your roots with simple asanas. When you spend too much time thinking, your energy is directed upwards into your minds. This creates imbalance and stress and it makes you feel confused and flighty, taking you away from emotional stability and clarity of mind. Yoga will help you to bring your focus to your body and its connection to the earth. After yoga we will have a relaxing break with wonderful vegan recipes and tea, prepared by our Italian cook, Valentina.
You will then create your vision for your Life Garden, asking yourselves what kind of life you want, what you want to achieve and change, what you want to do, have, experience. You will write down with your own words what is really important for you right now, because your garden is an intimate space and you can’t grow everything at once. You’ll prioritize and focus your energy on what you need now.
You will then deeply prepare yourself to welcome this transformation into your new awareness. Whatever it is that you decide to plant in your garden, it won’t grow well unless you have healthy and fertile soil which can create the habits and conditions you need every day. You will also need to choose the right seeds for you to reap what you sow.
You will work in couples to be sure you can recognize your own harvest. In the same way that plants depend on climate, temperature and sunlight, your intentions depend on your strength, your weaknesses, your character, and the people surrounding you. You will literally plant your wishes into your miniature garden basket . We will work with the meaning of flowers and the help of animals to design your own new world and bring cleansing and guidance.
And just as a garden needs constant tending, so do your goals and dreams. And you will need to have patience and trust the process. “You can’t pull on the plants and expect them to grow faster.”
What to bring with you:
Please bring some tiny items you have at home to add to your miniature garden basket. Also bring a notebook in case you feel like writing something, and a personal object for our ceremony.
