Going barefoot is healing
...it's the most natural way to connect with the wisdom of Mother Earth.
With a focus on an organic diet, yoga, meditation, walking in the forest, a spiritual practice, along with holistic and natural modalities to heal and maintain a balanced life, my life seemed so disciplined and managed that I began to wonder if there was another holistic piece I was missing. On the shore of Lake Couchiching, I sat and waited. One morning I took my socks and shoes off to rest my bare feet on the granite rock and I felt a vibration charge through my entire body. Could it be something as simple at touching Mother Earth with my bare feet? In the book Earthing, Clinton Ober talks about the healing powers of connecting with the ground, but surely it wasn't that easy? Starting slowly, I walked everywhere barefoot. In the forest I kept stubbing my toes on the roots and rocks. Over time I learned to adapt to all types of terrain and even snow. Soon I was running barefoot like a gazelle and experiencing a sense of joy that I hadn't felt since I was a little girl. The great Mother Earth provides to all. We can accept her gift in the most natural way by putting our bare feet on her belly. Next workshop: June 16, 2013. Cherry Valley Retreat http://www.cherryvalleyretreat.com/020~Workshops/
