What we're about

"Earth Prayers" is a gentle movement meditation, inspired by the physical practice of Qi Gong as well as earth-based poetic teachings from Daoism, Indigenous traditions, and Joanna Macy. Classes are taught regularly in New Mexico; now it is being introduced to the Bay Area by its founder, Mark Jensen.

“Earth Prayers is an active response to these challenging times. Jensen guides us through practices of the body, voice, and mind that facilitate personal healing and open us to deeper relationship with our living planet. I am grateful beyond words for the understandings and practices that Mark Jensen has brought into my life and work.” Joanna Macy, local environmental activist, author, and teacher.

I have experienced Earth Prayers, and I want to share it with my community here. I experienced community in Mark's workshops. I think this happens because the class moves with awareness of our love and our grief for all our relations during these difficult times. Even with strangers, there is community in that.

Mark will teach his first public workshop in the bay area on Nov. 10-11. The workshops are held in the afternoon of Saturday and Sunday, from 1:30 to 5:00. It's definitely doing both, if you can. Sliding scale fee. Wear loose fitting clothing, and bring a yoga mat and cushion. Call or email for directions, parking instructions, or further information. Depending on the response of our community, Mark will schedule additional workshops. After his second workshop, I plan to organize a regular Earth Prayers practice at my home in Oakland.

EarthPrayers Qi Gong is a contemporary Qi Gong inspired mythopoetic prayer on behalf of our world, ourselves, and all Life. It primarily utilizes adaptations of Qi Gong forms from the MogaDao Tradition, with the blessings of Zhen, as well as being influenced cross-culturally by Daoism, the western alchemical tradition, indigenous teachings, as well as by my many years of involvement with Joanna Macy and The Work That Reconnects. It is a response to and offering for this potent time of unraveling and reweaving we find our culture and world journeying through. It is a practice I feel called more deeply that ever to share in this moment. One I never imagined I would share online virtually and yet somehow at this moment it seems perfect as it allows me to share with many of you who have never had the opportunity to experience it. In the past I have taught it here in New Mexico, in North Carolina, and in the Bay Area. “Mark Jensen’s work is an active response to the call of these challenging times.

Like many of you, I am out of work with both my office and studio closed and as such have no income, but we can take this time to explore how we support one another. You may choose to pay what a normal online class of this level of quality costs, or you may choose more, less, or even zero.
