Welcome to Earth Speaks, a cultural platform where I share my creative work...
Let me begin by telling you that in my life I have received:
alchemical maps to navigate Mystery,
lessons in how to attune my 'little ears' to hear untold stories,
and lessons in how to administer spiritual nectars for soul wounds.
My work history spans diverse experiences, interests and competences from the healing arts, and the arts & crafts world. I draw my knowledge from geomancy (earth energy work), European shamanism, ecofeminism and deep ecology. My skill-set provides a deep perspective for transformational work, and in working with soul searching questions. Over the years I have worked with artists, storytellers, dreamers, teachers and conservationists among many others, and together we have practiced how to perceive the subtle aspects of place, lending our voice to different landscapes as part of an evolving ecological awareness.
Together with a host of colleagues and companions I collaborate on projects to create spaces and contexts where we can, as a group, explore the edges of what we collectively know. I invite you to join me in an inquiry into creative forms of expression relating to the 'mind of nature' where we can generate new narratives that combine ancient, nature based thinking with contemporary forms and needs.
I hope you find some inspiration among these pages, Karmit Even-Zur
