“Rooted: A Field Guide to Place, Home, & Belonging.”

Rooted: A Field Guide to Place, Home, & Belonging

I designed this online course to deepen your connection to the land right outside your door while weaving magical practices into your experience of home. Whether you live in an urban, suburban, or rural area, sacred land is under your feet. Whether you shelter in a house, yurt, or apartment — you can create a sanctuary of everyday magic.

This winter we’ll track the threads and strengthen the tapestry of Place, Home, and Belonging. I’ll invite you to keep a phenology log and seasonal journal. We’ll practice nature connection, ceremony, tarot play, seasonal crafts, folk magic, herbcraft, and reflective writing. We’ll support each other and share our discoveries in community circles over Zoom and in a private group on Mighty Networks.

I created this course because I wanted to “court” the land right where I live, instead of (or maybe in addition to) longing for the land I left behind when I moved a couple of years ago. So I returned to the nature journal practices I’d learned back in the 1990s, before I created the Gaian Tarot. Keeping a phenology log — tracking seasonal changes — right at home means you can create your own personal Wheel of the Year for your neighborhood and bioregion.

As we face a winter of nesting inside, we can create meaningful practices of honoring our ancestors, tarot play, herbcrafting, reflective writing, ceremony, and magic that will turn our homes into temples of coziness and belonging.

On the surface, this course is about connecting with nature outside your door and having fun inside with hearthcrafting and folk magic.

But on a deeper level, it’s about living in tune with the rhythm of the seasons, cultivating a reciprocal relationship with the sacred ground of your life, and reflecting on the meaning of home and belonging.

We begin Sunday January 17th, but there’s activities waiting for you as soon as you register.

We’ll nestle into our homes, bond with the land outside our doors, and activate the magical threshold between the two.

I hope you’ll join me this winter in rooting into place, home, and community.
