Scientific studies show plants can communicate with each other as well as with other species. The Plant Communication Workshop is designed to take people to ever deepening levels of connection to gain direct access to the consciousness and wisdom of the plants for life-changing personal and planetary healing & expansion.

This very experiential workshop offered:

  • Developing sensory awareness of plants
  • Accessing plant consciousness through the Shamanic Journey
  • Communication through light, sound, and breath
  • Entering the Daydream of the Plants
  • Discovering Your Plant Ally
  • Green Breath, transformational breath work created by Pam Montgomery
  • Journeying with the Music of the Plants

Students journeyed with the “Music of Plants” utilizing the plants on The World Peace Sanctuary grounds.  Melodic communication was offered by the ancient walnut trees located in the Sacred Grove with the use of an instrument/device that was designed and developed in Italy by the Damanhurians who have always been active in researching communication with the forces of nature.

The instrument is able to capture the electromagnetic variation of the surface of the leaves and roots, and turn them into sounds.

Take a listen, as we have offered it here for you and also a photograph of the instrument used.

The melody “sounds” will take your breath away!

At  the end of a most extraordinary weekend,  Karine shared her sentiments by saying,  “ It was so wonderful to share the expansive and heart-centered energy of plant consciousness. The World Peace Sanctuary is a wonderful place to engage with spirits of the plants.”

May Peace Prevail On Earth for All Life on Earth!
