Event Description

Come together to create and send intentions and prayers for healing the Earth elements—earth, air, fire and water. Facilitators Mary Kirkpatrick and Blair Frank will help us focus our prayers and intentions on one element on the third Wednesday of each month (May–August). The group will be patterned after the work of Lynne McTaggart who wrote The Intention Experiment and The Power of Eight: Harnessing the Miraculous Energies of a Small Group to Heal Others, Your Life and the World. Join us in creating sacred space and nurturing our relationships with Source, Earth, Self and Others! Mary Kirkpatrick is a gardener, permaculture designer, former Master Gardener and retired family life educator for Iowa State University Extension. Blair Frank is an herbalist, permaculture designer, avid gardener and lover of nature and Earth. He is a retired United Methodist pastor and nurse. Both Mary and Blair have attended earth-related workshops at Findhorn Retreat Center in Scotland. We will gather outdoors, so please dress for the weather. If we are unable to meet in person due to COVID-19, this will be offered virtually via Zoom. A free-will offering will be gratefully accepted, and registration is appreciated but not required. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at or 319-395-6700.
