The Plant Spirit Medicine Healer Training

Plant Spirit Medecine Healer Training - Session One
Charlotte, NC


An introduction to a deeper relationship with plants and with the divine natural world.

Imagine a world where plants express themselves with feeling and wisdom – a world where all of nature is aware and eager to speak with you. That astonishing place does exist, and it is not far away; in fact it is the world you live in today.

Eliot Cowan will be joined by Alison Gayek who will share stories of plant spirit wisdom. She will also guide you in a simple yet profound walk through the plant spirit doorway, where you can explore and discover the sacred world that is your home.

Alison Gayek has been teaching Plant Spirit Medicine with Eliot Cowan since 2002. She began studying with Eliot Cowan in 1997 and graduated from the PSM course in 1999. Since then, Alison has maintained a strong effective PSM practice. As a teacher, Alison teaches the PSM Practitioner Training Course, graduate clinicals and skills courses, and also works to teach, mentor, and support new graduates as they start their own practices. In addition, she is a qualified clinical supervisor and provides clinical supervision for students and graduates. Alison has continued her healing work through various pilgrimages with Eliot Cowan and David Wiley. She is a Granicera — a Weather Shaman — in the Nahua tradition indigenous to Central Mexico.

Writers Unbound Catskills Literary Festival

Writers Unbound (formerly known as Meet the Authors)

Writers in the Mountains' Catskills Literary Festival
Sunday, April 30, 2017
12 noon to 4 p.m.
Union Grove Distillery
Arkville, NY

CALL FOR AUTHORS

Writers in the Mountains (WIM) invites authors residing in, working in, or otherwise connected to the Catskills and Hudson Valley regions to a literary arts and community event and celebration we call Writers Unbound (formerly known as Meet the Authors), the fourth in our series of annual literary festivals. This year the event takes place Sunday, April 30, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Union Grove Distillery in Arkville, NY. Union Grove is housed in a big old barnlike building featuring comfortable spaces fitted with stainless steel and copper and wood, a roaring fireplace, and the percolation of fine spirits-all making for a perfect environment in which to listen to, talk about, and think about books and writing.

Building upon the past three years' success of our literary fair and fare, regional authors and other authors who have a connection to the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley are once again invited to join us. Come to sell your books, promote your work, and network with fellow writers and publishing professionals. This year's keynote speaker is Holly George-Warren, a music writer, historian, and biographer who has written many articles and liner notes, edited compilations and collections, and is author or co-author of and more than fifteen books, including her forthcoming biography of Janis Joplin, which will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2018.

This year's Writers Unbound program includes a Poetry Reading with Featured Poet Sharon Israel and others; a Publishing Panel with writer-editor Sari Botton and publisher Dayl Wise from Post Traumatic Press; an Illustrators' Moment with illustrators Durga Yael Bernhard and Will Lytle, and cookbook editor Carrie Bradley Neves; and New Release of the Year with nature writer Leslie T. Sharpe.

Participating authors will receive additional exposure and visibility for their works through the marketing materials (space ads, calendar listings, posters and flyers) and media appearances (Facebook, Twitter, Watershed Post, WIOX Roxbury, and others) associated with this event. A light breakfast will be served for participants the day of the event. The fee to join us is $35.

For more information, visit writersinthemountains.org, or contact us by e-mail at writersinthemountains@gmail.com or by phone at (845) 750-3563. Registration deadline is April 15, 2017.


TO JOIN US, PLEASE FILL IN AND MAIL THE FORM ALONG WITH YOUR CHECK TO WIM, PO BOX 474, ROXBURY, NY 12474

Used Outdoor Gear Pop Up Shop Sponsored by the Catskill Center

The Catskill Center is trying something new this spring and we are holding a Pop-Up Sale on May 6th and 7thfeaturing Used Outdoor Gear. To make this happen, we are soliciting donations of used outdoor gear in good condition for the sale. We are looking for all types of gear from boots to backpacks and clothing to technical gear. We're expecting to do these kinds of pop-ups from time to time, so gear not sold at the event in May won't go to waste.
 
If you have gear that you'd like to donate, please call Jonathan Mogelever here at the Catskill Center at 845-586-2611 extension 116 or email him at jmogelever@catskillcenter.org to schedule a drop off time. Don't forget to complete the attached Item Donation Form so we can be sure you get credit for your donation and so that we can say thank you!
 
If you could also spread the word about donations and the event itself to your fellow outdoor enthusiasts, we would greatly appreciate it!
 
We'd also welcome representatives from outdoor clubs in the Catskill region to have their information out for those attending the sale! Let Jonathan know if you are interested.
 
More info on the event is available at:
