Abeja found her way to this work through Permaculture, environmental activism and the nature connection movement. Incorporating Song and Movement into the Work that Reconnects is her current passion. She has lived in rural intentional communities for over 20 years, and is still slowly unlearning the disconnective habits our society encourages. She makes her living as a body worker and Gokhale Method instructor, while raising a son, a herd of goats, chickens, and a garden off the grid in Mendocino County.
Audiences I work with
I would like to make my workshops financially and physically available to all, and especially POCs and youth. I am challenged with how to do that, given my very rural location.
Experience facilitating other events & workshops
What year did you begin facilitating the Work That Reconnects?
I have facilitated various practices in my intentional community over the years. I have only led one retreat open to the public, last November, here at Emerald Earth. The page has been taken off our website now, but I can retreive it for you if you'd like. There were only 7 participants but the feedback was generally positive and it felt great.
