The Daily Rhythm

12 pm - Theme-of-the-day talk and activity
1 pm - Lunch and outdoor break
2 pm - Body care lesson & product making or field trip
4 pm - Closing Circle

Each circle opens with honouring the land we live on and its peoples:
As we gather together, we acknowledge this sacred land that supports us, cared for by its original peoples for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory is the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to share this home. May we always be mindful of broken covenants and the need to strive to make right with all our relations. We commit to this land and justice for all its peoples, and all living beings.

Values I base my teaching on:

* Plants are our ancestors and allies.
* Science is the process of discovery. Traditional Medicine is wisdom.

ABOUT me, TRACEY TIEF, Green Witch and Earth Activist

After a 17 year career in social work, I carried on a family tradition in the healing arts. My grandmother, a nurse, farmer and natural healer, treated diabetes and polio with therapeutic massage and holistic nutrition and was recognized as Canada's first physiotherapist. My mother was an internationally recognized health & sex educator and occupational health nurse. In my five years living in the inner city anarchist community, Kathedral B, I added the therapeutic use of herbs and vegan foods to my knowledge of folk and holistic medicine. Trained by co-founder Erica Ross, I facilitate Dance Our Way Home, a spiritual, themed and improvised dance practice to stories and dynamic music, for women and children. In summer 2016, I completed a Green Goddess Apprenticeship with Susun Weed in the Catskills, New York State, USA. I was initiated as a Green Witch. In spring 2017, I completed Permaculture Design Certificate and Earth Activist Training with Starhawk and Charles Williams at The O.U.R. Ecovillage on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. I continue to dance, to learn, and to wonder at the art and power of the human body, mind and spirit.
