Earth Skills Infusion: Tools for Connection

 Well, the Seven Day Earth Skills Infusion is here and underway, so I thought I would post the video I made to get people excited about it, and also post the first guided meditation I made for anyone who wants to 'infuse' their skills with clarity, purpose, relaxation, centering or just be really, really laid back!

Here is the link:   Ricardo Sierra's Guided Meditation

I made this recording so it can be downloaded, so you should be able to download it to your mobile devices!
For some reason, this picture just
makes me think of deep
I took it last week out my
window on the plane as it was
about to land in Tampa, FL.
(I was changing flights!)

You can also listen to it on my website here:   The Natural Advantage

I will be making another one pretty soon, and I will post it as well.

My study this week is about plants that I have around me that I don't really know all that well, or never identified, so I wanted to learn them better.   So, I will be posting some of the things I have been learning about them, as well as some pictures I took of them too, so you can learn too!

Anyway, hope you are all excited and doing some kind of skill or nature activity when you can!

And join our Facebook group if you want to see what everyone else is practicing and learning!

Have a great week!

Ricardo Sierra's New Seven Day Earth Skills Infusion!

 The new Seven Day Earth Skills Challenge is almost here, and this time, I am giving it a boost with an additional aspect I am calling "The Skills Alignment Infusion".

It's about meditating about your connection to nature, your materials, your skills and your own deep center, and I am providing a series of guided mediations to get you in the groove, if you are so inclined.

Inspired by the success of our Wolverine Survival Camp this summer, I felt like it was time to share this part of our training with you all, and see if this can help you grow your skills as well as your deeper mindset and get more powerful results and earth energy!

I will be posting a video about this on my website here, and you can also join our Facebook Group if you want to be part of the tribe, and see what others are practicing and learning, give and get support for your own work, and just in general get very, very inspired and excited!

It all starts Sunday, August 17th, 2014, and you are warmly invited!

Pick a skill, practice it 15-20 minutes a day, and watch your life change as you begin to get the benefits of a connection close to nature and feel those new skills activate your natural body awareness and inner power source!

It's going to be awesome.

I hope you will join us!

Let's do this thing!
