Reclaiming Your True Home
Every cell of your body is "nature" and we are all made up of elements that can be found in all earth beings. How could it be different? We are ourselves "nature" and we don't need to "go to nature" to feel that beautiful connection.
In truth, separation is an illusion.
It is perpetuated and reinforced by a lifestyle that keeps us immersed in "climate controlled" environments. Comfortably "protected" from the "elements", we become chronically cut off from feeling, tasting, smelling, hearing, and
seeing the natural world.
Learning to Listen
The earth is speaking to us, we are learning to listen.
When we walk slowly, with our senses open, our mind, and heart receptive, we not only see, but begin to feel the natural draw to reclaim our human being-ness in deep relationship with the vast network of all earth beings.
What to Expect
We will first meet by phone or Zoom to discuss the setting that best matches your expectations and intentions for your immersion experience.
In this initial conversation I'll also describe suggested guided practices and the general pace of our session.
