Titiane Haton ~ on a Year Apprenticeship with Azul Valerie Thome
Titiane is an apprentice Azul and SOULand. She is an apprentice to the language of Soul, to the intimacy with the land and the making of ritual in service to the beauty of Earth. She is guided by her sense of awe in the power of ritual and ceremony to bring a sense of deep intimacy with Life and amongst human beings.
As a child, she invited her parents for tea ceremonies in her bedroom. Growing up in the city, she studied urban planning and took part in an urban farm, where she first encountered the magic of compost. She went on to several farms practicing agroecology and felt the definite call to become closer to the earth as she shook under her feet one day of spring 2015.
Looking for a deeper understanding of soil and forests, she embarked on the Msc. in Holistic Science at Schumacher College. There she found a deep and intimate understanding of ecology and the sacred. Titiane and Azul met each other in the hallway of the college and since then have developed an intimate relationship infused with the growing of Souland, ritual and composting.
In times of uncertainty and feeling of a close collapse, Titiane loves dancing with other human beings upon the rocks or following squirrels in the forest.
