FORUM: HEALTHY SOIL, HEALTHY PEOPLE with BIODYNAMICS

with Rob Birse

Rob developed a passion for all things organic soon after leaving school.

At some of the numerous organic festivals he and his wife Lorraine attended during the 1970’s, he first encountered the permaculture work of Bill Mollison and then discovered biodynamics at a dairy farm in Victoria in 1978.  He was immediately hooked and since that time has worked at deepening his knowledge and when circumstances have allowed, applying the BD preparations and practices in his gardening work.  He spent 8 years as gardening teacher at Samford Valley Steiner School and has run introductory biodynamics workshops for a number of years, as well as giving numerous talks.

Prior to returning to the Blackall Range earlier this year, he spent almost 18 months managing the establishment of the Compass Farm at Palmwoods, which is intended to provide meaningful work and learning opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.

After almost 35 years of working with and observing biodynamics being applied on farms and gardens across Australia, Rob is still convinced that biodynamics remains at the cutting edge of agriculture.

He is committed to extending the use of biodynamics as a powerful tool for the restoration of degraded land in this region and he will be at the Wellness Fest at the Forum on Healthy Soil.

5 RHYTHMS DANCE

with Honor Morningstar

A fabulous, fun and profound dance and movement meditation practice created by extraordinary ‘urban shaman’ Gabrielle Roth.

By moving the body you can still the mind. And in the words of Gabrielle, “Put the psyche in motion and it will heal itself”

Based on the five rhythms of

Flowing

Staccato

Chaos

Lyrical

Stillness

which together form a wave or waves of energy that are intrinsic in all naturally occurring phenomena.

I love these deep surging powerful rhythms…at their most profound, an invitation to awaken to our truth, at their most basic an outrageously fun opportunity to rock the body and dance!!

Basically, you’re invited to: drop into your feet drop into the beat step out of your own way and simply be the dance! You can’t get it wrong! Actually, you will feel quite good!
