Experiential Workshop – Natural Living
Natural plasters | Embodiment & healing | Wild greens
In a beautiful spot surrounded by the olive trees, 200 m from the sea side just below the foothills of Taygetus mountain, we will practice with clay plaster, embodiment, healing and collecting edible plants.Workshop will take place in a new built house (stone and brick) with many types of natural plasters, that we lately completed: tadelakt in the bathroom, clay plaster in the rooms and externally traditional lime plaster.
The earth was excavated from the field and hand processed to get a clay for the mortar. During the workshop we will lead you through this process and explain the rules for creating own recipes, from the base coat to the finishes. Along with the practical part we will follow theory of various techniques in natural building such as strawbale, light-clay and hempcrete.
Second part of the event will take you into a practice of healing and cleansing the body. Introducing the efficient way to increase core strength and to build roots, we will approach the deepest layer of musculature.
We will walk towards the Taygetus Mountain to recognize and collect wild edible plants. Afterwards we will learn how to combine them into nourishing salads, herbal infusions and smoothies.
