What we're about
This group is for anybody who wants to cultivate a deeper connection with nature and their most authentic selves. We are nature-lovers interested in coming together to shake off the old stories of our culture and live into the new stories that we and the earth are calling for. (Note: while we are all hike-lovers and sometimes saunter, this is not primarily a walking/hiking group)
We will meet 1-4 times a month in nature for various sense-based and soul-based nature- and self-connection activities, including nature therapy exercises, council circle, creative writing, practices drawn from Joanna Macy and The Work That Reconnects and Bill Plotkin's SoulWork, poetry, foraging, and/or simple mindful activities.
• Slow down in order to be present with nature and hear our own authentic voices
• Hold a healing space for each other and our emotions, including joy, sadness, fear, and anger, with nature as ally.
• Connect with others in nature and cultivate an earth-based community
"If we surrendered to earth’s intelligence
we could rise up rooted, like trees.” -Rumi
