Into the World by Leila Lees
I wrote Into the World because I am passionate about human consciousness. As we begin to experience our own integral self and find our moral compass in our hearts, I see that we may create space for each other to exist. We do this within a dynamic community that is conscious of its interconnection with an even greater, more diverse ecosystem.
I started writing Into the World in notebooks with a fountain pen. There is something for me about good quality paper and a nicely weighted pen. My favourite time of writing is early morning, and I like to write in the studio where I have no electricity. I light the candle and settle myself in.
Into the World arose from teaching a series of workshops that are working with the Lasavia Healing Essences as a foundation of learning. As insights and understandings came through I would write and receive and sometimes record myself working around subjects like power, belief patterns, the mind and how we learn.
I started this particular series of teaching on Waiheke and in Wellington as I uncovered what I think of now as a blueprint of information. As I wrote I also studied, following winding pathways of alchemy, science, creativity and shamanism. I also responded to issues and questions that arose from students.
This book is the first of four books that cover this particular blueprint of experiential process and information. I see my work bridging a time of wisdom that centres around the concept of nature as within us, and our contemporary, complex and mostly materialistic world.
Our immediate survival is no longer orientated on our connection to nature, and yet our connection and the actions that arise from this are now crucial for the whole of our environment. I hope my work inspires and uncovers a way of connection that feels natural and insightful for you.
Excerpts from Into the World
Nature connection refers to an active participation with nature and a conscious connection through sensory awareness.
It is profound and exciting yet also playful, inspiring and may help to integrate things we are experiencing but struggle to understand.
Each landscape has its own gesture and essence. The heart relates to earth, to land, and to landscape.
The heart is the organ with which we connect to the Essence of Landscape and it is through our emotions, and our sensory body that we perceive that essence.
Journaling can help integrate an experience while helping you explore your practise through reflective practise.
Journaling may combine nature observation, personal insight, as well as dreams and visions.
