Each week until Tour Time, Prairie Sage will be profiling one of the sites on our 2017 tours list. For more information on our complete tours listing, and to register, check out the 2017 Calgary Permaculture Tour page!
This year we welcome Senses of the Soul to the tour lineup, and not only will they invite us for a feast for the senses and the spirit, but also a dinner feast after the tour is complete! This will be the final stop for 2 out of our 4 tour days this summer (July 29th and August 12) during the Sustenance for the Spirit tour!
The Senses of the Soul Botanical Sanctuary and Farm is a ten acre parcel of land where one can reconnect with nature, and find the stillness and quiet needed to hear the voice of the soul. Included in the garden are 7 distinct areas, each corresponding to the 7 main chakras of the human body.
Samantha Orthlieb, who operates this refuge for the spirit, offers medicine woman/medicine man training and a host of other workshops and activities at her site. She is also author of the book "Opening The Senses Of The Soul: Healing Into Wholeness With Nature's Vibrational Medicine".
She has also invited us to observe a a mini plant music demo with a device she has received from Europe in order to demonstrate how the electrical frequencies emitted by plants can be translated into music!
Please check out this years Tours Page to find out more about Senses of the Soul as well as the other sites we will visit on the same day!
