Facebook MORE INFO

Trees have knowledge that humans usually don’t know how to access. Maybe we share this knowledge, but we can’t know unless we take the time to listen. This becomes essential at a time when we want to support the forests regenerate after the fires – how can we support someone to whom we don’t listen?

We, the Mouries – a circle of women with practices of divination and healing – are interested in building a conversation with the trees. We will receive our guests in a picnic, where we will share our methods, thoughts and intuitions. We will then guide each visitor to a different space in the grove where a mediator will assist a connection with the trees.

We want to create a liberating space for healing and the coexistence of different approaches that expand our understanding of storytelling. We aim to deepen our perception and explore the connection between intimacy and public space and nature as our companion in the city. By learning to hear the trees, we can also learn to hear each other. We explore our relationship with nature – and with each other. We are separate and different, but we are equally present in Pedion Areos as beings who share this common space. We all have stories to tell about it, as we all live it in our way.

Let’s open our senses to new intimacies through one to one encounters, conversations, stories and melodies in the forest!
