Join us along the bluffs for a morning of reconnecting to nature, ourselves, and each other.

One reason we have found ourselves caught up, disconnected, distracted, and depressed, is that much of the modern world, buttressed by an Industrial Growth Society, has lost its sense of DEEP BELONGING to the world 🌎. What would it mean to find and cultivate a sense of deep belonging to the world, meaning not only the physical 'where' of our belonging, but also the human and greater-than-human 'whom' to which we belong, and also how the seed-image that is uniquely you takes its place in the world?

What to expect:
Together we will do an opening circle, then participate in solo and group activities that invites us to connect to our biggest and ecological selves, practice the skill of belonging, and unfurl our story that is ours alone, and by doing so, honor our deep belonging in the natural world. Expect poetry and art as well.
