|NatureConnect Excursions Promise:
experiences that engage your natural self; lessons from Earth's teachers; connection with the soul of life.
We are recognizing the urgency of inviting a
deeper connection with the
wild nature of Earth as vital to life.
We are realizing we must transform how we live
if humans are to continue and thrive in
the face of the ignorance, devastation and destruction
we have caused to so many life forms.
We are discovering a wellspring of love,
hope and strength.
We are re-discovering the power
and joy of in living interdependently with all life forms.
|Opportunities for sacred
personal relationship with
the wild nature of earth,
one another and the
with whom we share
this amazing home.
Women and men building authentic
all life. They are called to true themselves
truly matters. They are committed to a
conscious, renewing, earth-based,
Each of us gives time and attention
throughout the excursion to inviting
Nature to teach us
how to live with presence and instinct.
Each of us offers our unique gifts as
we travel into new landscapes, outer and
inner, and co-create our time together.
Our time in the sacred landscapes always includes:
Becoming present to the power of nature's mystery and influence
Exploring our purpose within our dependence on and love of the natural world
Kindling our natural desire to honor and protect all of earth's creatures & beings
Imagining a world of beauty and health for those yet-to-be-born
Developing our strength, our resiliency and our voice for the future
Together we journey, keenly observing & experiencing through our inherent naturalist's eye and heart. We share our knowledge of geology, rocks,
plants, trees, animals, birds, marine life, stars, clouds, history, myth, our place, our heart, the life around us.
Alone and together we explore, walk, hike, nap, sit in circle, and sit solo. We journal, share sacred stories and sacred silence.
We travel and meet the ones who reside in the forests, the mountains, and along the seascapes. The 4-leggeds: deer, antelope, horse, coyote, cougar;
the winged ones: hawk, eagle, magpie, jay, wren, vulture, gull, plover, crane, heron, quail; the water-dwellers: whale, seal, otter, beaver, muskrat,
salmon, trout, frog; the unique: snake, snail, spider. We join them in their territory in deep curiosity and reverence.
We learn the lichens, grasses, trees. We read the sky, sit upon the dirt and break bread together, sharing wholeheartedly and for a time, fall into love,
care and generosity.
We build our strength for the return to our communities and these times.
