The Embodied Earth-Worker
5 weeks of magic, movement, community, intimacy, manifestation, and self-care.
For farmers, farm workers, land defenders, gardeners, homesteaders, and anyone striving to create a life in harmony with a piece of this beautiful earth.
We tend ourselves to tend the earth.
Hi, my name is Bethany (she/her).
I came to ecological farming because of chronic health issues and trauma that made it challenging for me to engage in the regular world. I wanted to be my own boss and create a life in harmony with the earth.
The stress of starting a farm exacerbated many of my health issues, and my early years of farming were very difficult. Eventually I got fed-up with the reality that was my daily life, and began a deep journey to heal my anxiety, depression, and an autoimmune disorder. I began to live in alignment with who I was at my source.
I am a queer agrarian mama, a yoga teacher, a musician, a farm-administrator, and a coach. I am committed to a lifetime of personal expansion and tending to the earth.
I believe that the more intimately connected we are to ourselves, the more intimately connected we can be to the land.
I created the Embodied Earth-Worker course to call you home to your body, your spirit, and your purpose.
Inside this course…
What are you being called to tend in yourself, the land, and in community? What emotions needs to be felt within you? Are you being ALL that you are? Why are you here? What is the earth asking of you? What is your body asking of you?
We will have 5 zoom calls together (90 minutes long) to explore these questions. Our work together will be to tend to our bodies, and deepen in relationship with our bodies. We will explore various self-development concepts, ideas, and techniques that will aid you in creating an embodied and aligned life on land. We will talk about integrity, purpose, sex, boundaries, vices/addictions, manifestation, the impact on our bodies of manual labour, and much more.
The calls will be recorded so you can play them back at any time.
You will be invited to feel, breathe, expand, and lead yourself to a reality you never imagined possible for yourself or the land.
In addition to our Zoom Calls, you will receive:
- A Video Tour of my Farm, Zocalo Organics, and introduction to our No-Till ecological practices
- An online community (Facebook Group) where you can share your thoughts and insights with other participants in the class.
- Weekly Journal Prompts and Homework to support your inner work
- A Toolkit of Embodiment, Nervous system regulating, and Breathing practices that will support you in your journey.
Once upon a time I was slogging vegetable at prices I could not afford, falling into bed each night completely exhausted wondering, “Is this it?”
I wanted to have a child, I wanted to play music, I wanted to sustain deep friendships, I wanted to have more intimacy with my partner, I wanted to offer more to my community, and I wanted a healthier body.
These desires were the compass that led me to a place of increased health, vitality, and spiritual growth. I am still on my journey (always will be!), and I am ready to support you on yours.
This course is for you if,
- You want to tend to yourself after a season of hard work
- You are tired of working long hours and making little money
- You want to acquire land, or stay on land but it is a struggle
- You want to more clearly articulate and live into your “Purpose”
- You want to have more time for yourself, your kids, or your relationships
- You want to have more power in creating a schedule that aligns with your needs and desires
- You seek increased vitality, radiance, and joy
- You want to work less and live more

My farm is called Zocalo Organics. I started this with my previous life-partner and my continued co-conspirator, Seb Ramirez. In addition to growing beautiful no-till organic vegetables for a 150 member CSA program and local Farmer’s Market (and restaurants pre-Pandemic), our farm also hosts tenant farmers, retreats, and more. We are committed to building a diverse (race, gender, sexuality) cooperative, and healthy rural life on and beyond our farm.
The modalities that inform this course: Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems (aka. Parts work), Re-wilding and somatic sex work, Kripalu Yoga, Money Manifestation, and more. I will talk more about my training and lineage in our first call.
I will be posting content leading up to the course on instagram here: @whatmakesyourheartsing
You can find our farm on instagram and facebook @zocaloorganics
