It is hard to put into words how profound this experience was for me. This was a total rewilding of my body and soul. I will forever be grateful to Julie for showing us the way of the plant path and the resiliency that comes from those relationships. For helping us to remember who we are and where we came from and how to honour our ancestors. For showing us the joy and support that comes from community and for holding a sacred space for us to grow and share together. For sharing her knowledge and wisdom. For teaching us how to use our hands and out hearts to weave. I will forever be changed by my experience at the Gaia Hive and I will forever be grateful for the gift of remembering.
