Energy doesn’t disappear, it just changes forms. We often think of these concepts as opposites, but integration cannot exist without disintegration and vice versa. This is the natural rhythm of life. How do we shape change without trying to control change?
Energy doesn’t disappear, it just changes forms. We often think of these concepts as opposites, but integration cannot exist without disintegration and vice versa. This is the natural rhythm of life. When decomposition happens, mycelium grows. How do we shape change without trying to control change? Sometimes, when we try to force change, we lose parts of ourselves along the way.
Join us for a retreat to explore the edges and interactions of disintegration and integration in your own life through embodied movement, mushroom cultivation, and space to pause and reflect. You will take home with you the beginnings of a mycelial community that will hopefully grow mushrooms!
The retreat will be shaped by Marcia Lee’s experience as a Courage and Renewal facilitator and en sawyer’s wisdom as an experienced fungi, woodworker, philosopher and much more!
Marcia Lee lives in Waawiiyatanong, currently known as Detroit, MI. She will be joined by en sawyer (he/him) who is an artist, taiko drummer, woodworker, urban mycologist, permaculturist, vipassana meditator, and father. He aspires to live with discernment and according to the dictates of wisdom. His central questions in life are how to live gracefully and harmoniously on this earth, to laugh heartily, share openly and learn tirelessly. He co-founded Taproot Sanctuary with his partner, Marcia Lee.
