Soil and Soul – into the darkness

Gardening is a rewarding way to find peace and wholeness in a busy world, and connect back to the earth and its rhythms. In conjunction with Plot 22, a community allotment in Hove, we are delighted this winter afternoon, as part of a series of seasonal ‘contemplative gardening’ sessions. Working together in a small group, there will be time for community, and time for a mindful silence as we tend the earth. We will also offer ‘catalysts’ to help us reflect on our spiritual connectedness to creation in the winter season. As part of the session we will toast tea cakes, and enjoy a story around the fire.
Plot 22 is a magical allotment space, beautifully designed with meandering paths and willow tunnels, a cosy cabin (with stained glass windows), a wood burning stove, fire circle and pizza oven. There are compost toilets too!
Soil and Soul will be facilitated by  Rev Kate Lawson and Jane Bartlett, co-ordinators of the Brighton & Hove Centre for Spirituality.
‘I want you to fill your hands with mud, like a blessing,’ Mary Oliver, poet.
