Earth based spirituality is central to my life and permaculture work and I often use the energies and patterns it guides me with as core tools within my designing.
This week I've had some lovely creative time, designing a space in our new garden where we can have celebratory or reflective times around representations of the 5 elements , Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit.
Ive also been learning more about luna patterns and cycles recently, so today, with the moon in the Earth sign Capricorn, Id like to present my 'Earth' area of the garden.
Facing North and amongst our current herb pot zone, Earth has lots of different stones and seeds within its creation. Earth is very much about fertility, healing, growth, support, wisdom and manifestation, and it was really great to focus on these aspects as I chose what I wanted the it's space to look like.
I've also decided to include planting the dried bean I had saved from the Earth Activist Training I attended in California in 2013. We were all given beans to take from the temporary community we had formed there, back to plant wherever home was. At the time, I knew that 'Home' would be changing, though now this garden is starting to feel very much like it may well be Home x
