Dreaming Earth Ministries is an exploration and attempt to engage with healing and wellness from a perspective where the human individual is de-centered as the most important figure. It is an effort to explore the cracks and wounds, in our hearts, minds and societies as rich ground for becoming more authentically human. A compost pile for commodified practices and beliefs around what it means to be well.
It is an attempt to dream with the Earth, not as an end goal to some light filled fifth dimension, but as descent into the body of Gaia, which is also a descent into the body of ourselves, and an ascent into the cosmos.
Currently the ministry is a one woman show. Dreamed into being by Emilie, constantly evolving and changing, expanding and contracting.
Emilie grew up in the liminal spaces between the elder Ozark Mountains and the younger Cascades. She is a granddaughter, daughter, sister, mother who survived much trauma in early life that did not leave her un-marked. Preferring to grow with and around the trauma vs attempting to return to some unblemished state, she has participated in what is likely 1000's of hours of psychedelic ceremony, recreation and healing works, filling a wide range of roles. In an effort to bring the awe of psychedelic use to a western world she has also extensively studied and trained in more traditional psychological approaches to being human.
She currently resides in the Pacific Northwest learning to live with a disabled body and dreaming of Mexico and warm salt water.
