Wisdom of Earth
September 29th, 2018 9am – 4pm*
Sfeer Studios ~ 200 Britton Dr. Chapel Hill, NC
This Autumn we will be in a deep study of the energy of Saraswati – Goddess of the arts, wisdom, knowledge and new beginnings. We’ll learn about her, sing her songs, and use our day to awaken wisdom in us. We’ll especially be invoking her powers of intuition, knowledge and wisdom as we bring our yoga into the world of plant allies.
Our retreat will be a full day of yoga practice, connection, learning, healing, rest and nourishment. The on-the-mat practice is intended for all levels. Many options will be given so everyone can get what they need from the physical practice.
The plants we share this planet with can offer us a tremendous amount of support. They nourish our bodies and hearts. They can help us stay healthy, happy, connected and whole. They can even help us uncover and grow our hidden abilities. But we have to know how to interact with them and how to use them. Our special guest Lea Clayton will help guide us to deeper connection with the plant world through song, meditation and direct experience with the plants. She’ll bring her unique understanding of the yogic elements and practice to help us find the support that is available all around us – literally growing on trees.

is a NC licensed bodywork and massage therapis
t and a community herbalist
with a private
practice in Saxapahaw NC since 2004. As a Community Herbalist Lea Clayton grows and wildcrafts herbs, makes medicine and maintains a small (but awesome!) apothecary at RiverSong Farm, her home in Saxapahaw, NC.
She is owner/operator of GreenHeart Herbs and GreenHeart CSA (Community Supported Apothecary) for Children and their Families. She both consults individually with folks and offers group classes in botanical medicine. It is her joy and honor to connect people with our green allies, the healing plants.
In her bodywork sessions, she incorporates massage, energy healing and somatic (mind/body) therapeutic practices. Compassionate presence and body-based listening are guiding principles for Lea in her approach to touch-based therapy. Lea believes in the power of health as a living intelligence that informs and creates all the layers of who we are. When we view ourselves in this way, bodywork becomes transnational in nature and healing is facilitated.
