COURSE INTRODUCTION

COURSE DASHBOARD

Sunday, October 2nd, 2022 – ORIENTATION

Michael Lindfield and Lyndsay Pennington will host an orientation on Zoom to kick off the next six weeks.  We’ll review the course structure, explore the resources and materials you will be receiving, answer any lingering questions and go over our theme for Week 1, Creating the Conditions.  The session will close with a Group Creative Meditation.  ORIENTATION will be from 1:00 pm PT – 1:45 pm PT.  

Sunday, October 2nd, 2022 – Start of Week 1 – CREATING THE CONDITIONS

Inside of each one of us is a seed that contains the promise of who we are.  The seed can reveal itself when we create the right conditions for it to grow.  This segment includes the steps we can take and practices to create the right conditions inside our heart and soul in order to unwrap and access the seed of our own uniqueness. CREATING THE CONDITIONS Soul Gardeners Live Forum takes place on Sunday, October 9th at 1:00 pm PT.

Sunday, October 9th, 2022 – Start of Week 2 – COMPOSTING

This week we will begin to compost the Soul Garden so that the past can enrich the present.  The lessons and practices of Composting focuses on identifying and releasing ourselves from the pain of the past through acceptance, responsibility and forgiveness.  This will allow us to let go and liberate the energy of our past experiences so we can move forward and build a more fruitful soul this cycle.  COMPOSTING Soul Gardeners Live Forum takes place on Sunday, October 16th at 1:00 pm PT.

Sunday, October 16th, 2022 – Start of Week 3 – UNCOVERING THE HEART OF THE GARDEN

As souls in the Garden of Gaia – this planet – we each have our own individual garden which lies within our heart.  Our hearts can both process and bring the past into the present, and bring the future into the present.  This week we will learn how to prepare the heart so that it can receive the seeds of the future through practices of appreciation, self-love and synchronization with the heart of Gaia.  UNCOVERING THE HEART OF THE GARDEN Soul Gardeners Live Forum takes place on Sunday, October 23rd at 1:00 pm PT.

Sunday, October 23rd, 2022 – Start of Week 4 – THE SEEDS

We have prepared the garden and are now ready to receive the seeds. But what is a seed?  A seed is the eternal promise of who you are packed into a particle of infinity.  The promise of the seed can only be shown if it is sown and grown.  This week we will focus on getting in touch with your potential, your promise, and your power so that all that which is awaiting revelation can be revealed.  THE SEEDS Soul Gardeners Live Forum takes place on Sunday, October 30th at 1:00 pm PT.  

Sunday, October 30th, 2022 – Start of Week 5 – THE TENDING

Now that we have identified our unique seed and that which is wanting to be born inside of us, our task is to tend the Soul Garden.  To tend means to be fully present by bringing our love and tenderness to our potential. This week’s lessons focus on understanding the rhythms of our seasons, the cycles of our nature, and the challenges and gifts of the elements, so that we aren’t just witnessing our life from a distance, but in full attendance to its tending.   THE TENDING Soul Gardeners Live Forum takes place on Sunday, November 6th at 1:00 pm PT.

Sunday, November 6th, 2022 – Start of Week 6 – CONDITIONS & REQUIREMENTS, CLOSING CEREMONY

So, what does it mean now that we have become a Soul Gardener?  In this last week of the course, we will look at integrating the lessons we have learned into our everyday life, develop practices for working in adverse conditions, and learn about how to harmonize with the greater garden of Gaia.  The Closing Ceremony will take place on November 13th beginning at 2:00 pm either virtually or in-person at Meditation Mount in Ojai, CA.
