Nature Studies: A book club.
The idea is to dovetail outer learning and adventuring with inside learning and adventuring. Getting outside is awesome and important for me and is almost always more fun with others. My inner intellectual/philosophical/spiritual journey is amazing and important to me as well; And, more fun with others. To this end, I am staring a "book club".
As a few friends of mine and I have being talking over the winter about how to have and share with others the inner journey and what to do, the perfect book came into my life. The title and subtitle are, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants. It's awesome, wonderful, Sublime! By female author, Robin Wall Kimmer.
I'm super excited to have others join me and I confidently expect this will lead to even greater outdoor skills, knowledge, adventuring and community. I live in a huge, 3 story community house in south philly with 5 others. Really great for hosting plus we know how to do fires really well in the back (We're lucky). At a minimum, great herbal tea will always be available.
