The Nature of Life

WCCW 10-2017 NDD.jpghttp://womenscenterforcreativework.com/events/nature-deficit-disorder-workshop/

Continuing with our indigenous perspectives series, we invite you to experience the Nature of life through your senses. In the Americas we share a legacy as indigenous people, to forge a respectful relationship with all that is life sustaining.   It is this knowledge, this understanding of our responsibility towards mother Earth as co-inhabitants in Nature, which will be addressed. The session will begin by taking a short hike to identify native flora and the benefit of nurturing it, for the sake of endangered native pollinators; followed immediately by the INTER-ACTIVE workshop component. Join us please, and prepare yourself to immerse in the flora’s edible and self-care properties.

This four-hour workshop will be led by Olivia Chumacero at the Women’s Center for Creative Work in Los Angeles. Sensible foot-ware and attire are advised. Please note that e.i.m. events are always zero-waste.

We humyns live on this planet as an integral species of our environment and are merely one manifestation of the millions of species which claim this air, this water, this light, this earth, as our collective home.”  Olivia Chumacero

NATURE HIKE & WORKSHOP

The well-being of our species depends on our relationship with Nature because everything we eat, use, make, or recreate on, derives from the existence of Nature. In the upcoming sessions e.i.m, will introduce a series of pro-active indigenous perspectives towards Nature, which is inherent in the relationship we hold as occupants of our home planet Earth. The best way to impart these indigenous perspectives is by experiencing Nature. Join us for this and future hikes, workshops, and lectures.
