more detail about this series:
I believe that dedicating oneself to a nature practice is not only about calming the nervous system and engaging in an atheistic forms of mindfulness, but also is about connecting to the animated spirit of the land, the spirit of community, and the very personal spirit that has been given this flesh suit of a body.
You do not have to have experience or confidence in this realm to attend this series. This is a container for learning and growing, and experiencing the support of a community who is also attempting to do the same. The skills & abilities you need to presence deeply in nature are already inside of you; we are simply giving them space to be coaxed out.
In this series, we will be engaging in guided forms of walking and sitting meditation. We will be using the words of wise & beloved animist authors to journal, presence, co-contemplate, and root deeper. We will be connecting through meaningful & heart-centered question prompts with circle-mates. We will be greeting the elements around us. We will feel into interconnectedness and interbeing. We will get to know chosen plants.
In this first series, we will focus four level 1 portals of presencing: sight, sound, smell, and touch. Later, I will offer additional levels for folks to continue their work in phases.
If this practice is calling to you, please schedule a forest circles clarity call (15 min) so we can confirm we are in alignment, and make sure we are building the intentional community of practice that we seek. Then, you may sign up & receive the final steps.
