Description

Self & Soul Center is a 25 acre biodynamic nature preserve and garden on year-round Wagner Creek, Talent OR. This land, infused with beauty and creative collaboration, is a healing container for personal and group renewal. We live, work, dance, meditate, and grow here.

The internship takes place on the Self & Soul Center grounds and is taught by owner - farmer- body poet Suzanna Nadler.

Responsibilities

Explore and develop your relationship to nature and the elements-earth, water, fire, air and ether-within your body and the outside world. Through movement, breath, creative expression and farming, the elemental nature of our existence will be embodied and expressed. A biodynamic approach to gardening will bring in a relationship to the cycles of the moon and a deeper understanding of what promotes growth. Explore how you approach gardening and infuse your work with mindfulness, healing the separation between self and the earth. The internship ends with each person performing/showing a creative project.
