Do you wish you could connect more deeply to your own inner beauty and wisdom? Would you like to see more easily the beauty and possibility in other humans, either on a global scale as we experience biodiversity loss, climate change, and human suffering, or with your closest or work relationships? If you dream of a world where all beings are treated as having inherent worth and dignity and enjoy connecting with nature and earth's species, then please join us on our Wild Walks. One Earth Conservation has been leading these Wild Walks (also known as Bird Walks) for over 5 years throughout the metro New York area. This year we continue the tradition by expanding on the themes of our walks in a four-part series which will emphasize how we can love all of nature - ours, theirs (humans and other species) and the earth's.
Our first walk is on Saturday, May 25th, 2019 in the New York Botanical Garden, where admission is free if you enter between 9-10 a.m. We will meet at 9:30 a.m. right inside the main admission gate located at 2900 Southern Blvd in the Bronx. Look for someone holding a "Wild Walks" sign. To find out more about how to get to the Garden or to park, visit: https://www.nybg.org/. Our theme for this walk is Loving Our Individual Nature, which will emphasize the beauty within each human (this means you) that is connected to the beauty without. We practice this outlook during the walk so that we can grow our emotional intelligence and nurture a warm, resonant voice within.
Bring binoculars as we will also be birdwatching!
