We turn to nature for solace, inspiration, beauty, and mystery. We came from nature, and to nature we return. Yet how well do we truly know Her? Affiliation with nature heals us and satisfies an essential human need. Lakes, meadows, ferns, and butterflies are intrinsic to our well-being and wholeness. The powerful and rejuvenating exercises in this course can help you become immersed in nature’s joyful presence and healing influence.
Who is this course for?
This course is for those who don’t want to wait until death to return to nature – who want to drink in her essence and feel in their marrow what it is like to be one with the mountains and waters and all living things. This is not just another course on animal behavior or nature stories: the course gently helps you shed what separates you from nature and shows you how to embrace the soul of nature and let Her soul embrace you.
What Makes the Course Unique?
The powerful and rejuvenating exercises in this course can help you become immersed in nature’s joyful presence and healing influence. Rather than strolling through the woods, we become the woods. No longer will we have to be content with catching only occasional glimpses of animals – we will find that they are more relaxed around us, more willing to go about their normal lives while we watch. With each exercise, we feel less and less estranged from nature and more as though we’ve renewed an old soul-satisfying relationship. Affiliation with nature heals us and satisfies an essential human need. Lakes, meadows, ferns, and butterflies are intrinsic to our well-being and wholeness.
