Regenerate means to grow again, it comes from the latin ‘re’ which means again and ‘generare’ which means to create.
Regenerating Rhythms is about finding balance, alignment and integrity with the natural world around us so that we can move away from extractive, capitalist and colonial ways of being into relationship centred regenerative cultures of care.
Regenerating Rhythms creates learning programmes that support and connect people with frameworks of cyclical living, deep ecology and nature connection. It pulls together a number of different practices and approaches that can support cultural shifts within individuals, communities and larger organisations that prioritise the wellbeing of people and planet.
... a facilitator, performance artist, regenerative practitioner and activist creating nourishing spaces that explore what it means to live life deeply connected to the rhythm of the Earth. I’m passionate about the connection between inner led change, systems thinking, nature connection and deep ecology. I’m currently using regenerative cyclical living as a practice to learn and educate about cultural patterns that have led us towards climate breakdown, ecosystem collapse and mass extinction and discover how we can make the radical shifts towards cultural healing and regenerative cultures before it’s too late.
"As a Facilitator she strikes a beautiful balance between holding the structure while attuning and adapting to what is intuitively called for in the moment. One of her many gifts is gently and powerfully helping groups to ground in the ways of nature and the rhythms of the body. She lives and breathes what she teaches, she shares from her inner well of lived experience." - Emma Ashru-Jones
Regenerative Cyclical Living
Our obsession with a perpetual summer of extractivism, constant productivity, economic growth and profit has led us to global burn out as we face climate breakdown, biodiversity loss, mass inequality and an epidemic of stress, anxiety and mental health issues.
Regenerative Cyclical Living might be described as a remedy to some of the troubles of these times, a pathway towards building an Ecological Civilisation that embodies diversity, balance, life cycles, fractal organisation and symbiosis. Through cyclical living we can learn to value whole cycles and processes, seeing death and stillness as essential parts needed for regeneration. If our cultural has swung way out of balance in the allure of perpetual summer - then regenerative cyclical living is the embodiment of a culture that has remembered to live in alignment with the Earth’s intelligence.
Within the pedagogy of Regenerating Rhythms Regenerating Cyclical Living is a combination of practices that can bring us closer to natural processes and the earth’s cyclical rhythm, this includes:
The Celtic wheel of the year
The 8 shields map
Deep nature connection
Menstrual cycle awareness
Regenerative land management and agriculture
For each of us it will look different but it might mean remembering our interdependence with the natural world through deep nature connection or learning to understand the cyclical processes of nature when we grow food and look after the land, from soil regeneration to the water cycles. It might mean honouring the cycles and the passing of time through the seasons, embodying the lifelong journey of humans towards Elderhood and valuing the place of Elders in our culture. It might mean honouring death, dying and grief as essential parts of regeneration or seeing how remembering our connection to the earth and the cyclical rhythm of nature is an essential part of systemic transformation.
"Rewilding ourselves could be the key to successfully changing the culture in which we live."
