What we're about

Outdoor Beauty Walks and other community gatherings in Maine organized by Renewal in the Wilderness (http://www.renewalinthewilderness.org).

Beauty Walks meet at half-wild locations around town. We will stroll and be still, converse and reflect, and then return to the trailhead with renewed energy to continue making the world more beautiful!

Our Beauty Walks and other gatherings are for people trying to make the world a decent place to live, and who sometimes get burnt out by their efforts. These are an opportunity to come together with others and listen for the refreshing whispers of wisdom from wild nature.

(Our practice of Beauty Walks is inspired by Animal, Vegetable, & Mineral: The Sacred Connection, an article by Carol Lee Sanchez, and was introduced to Renewal in the Wilderness by our friend, Sharon Welch, who has used this practice with her students.)
