Please join us for a walk through nature with Christina Kingsbury, a local Guelph artist and educator, to perform collective inquiry and meditation with plants. We will be starting at the covered bridge downtown Guelph and taking a short walk to a nearby forest to follow in Plantain’s footsteps. This walk and meditation takes up Potawatomi botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer’s call for settler societies to unlearn the mindset of colonization through learning from plants. Through dialogue (with both plants and humans) and mapping our sensory experience, we will explore pathways to being HERE in a time/place of ecological crisis and unresolved settler colonialism.
Participation is FREE and all are welcome! We will remain at the meeting location for up to 10 minutes prior and post event start time before leaving on our walk.
There will be walking involved, but this event is accessible to everyone. No registration is necessary. If there are any further inquiries, please contact chelsea[at]musagetes.ca/musagetes-old.
