Time & Location
Nov 04, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
About the event
Forming your own Spirituality in Nature Group (SING) is a wonderful way to connect with community, open up to spiritual deepening, and reawaken our wonder, connection, and renewed commitment to actively loving the Earth. As we hike through the forest, walk on the beach, or stroll beside a stream, the world around us echoes with sacred resonance. We know that time in nature can offer some of our most moving and meaningful spiritual experiences. SING communities invite us to engage its call.
The SING Leaders’ Training will be led by Payton Hoegh, Program Director, and Beth Norcross, Executive Director of The Center for Spirituality in Nature. It will offer a detailed, structured and accessible look at how you can launch your own Spirituality In Nature Group (SING).
Working with the Start SINGing Workbook, this webinar will:
- Cover the logistics of setting up a SING
- Discuss curriculum and itinerary
- Explore community-building techniques for cultivating rich, diverse SING groups
- Answer frequently asked questions
- Share experiences from SING leaders
- Offer the opportunity to sample spiritual practices that you can engage with your group
Following the webinar, you’ll be invited into continued relationship with the wider network of SING communities. You’ll also receive access to additional community-building opportunities, training and resources, organized and curated by our Spiritual Communities program.
Alongside this training, we encourage prospective SING Leaders to purchase our books, Start SINGing and Inside Out. They offer a 10-month curriculum, community-building and leadership tips, as well as more than 50 practices for engaging spirituality in nature. These books will be discounted for three weeks leading up to our training. Early registrants will be sent a notification when that discount becomes available.
WHO SHOULD JOIN THIS TRAINING?
We are committed to sharing opportunities and tools for spiritual deepening with all, ensuring inclusion remains at the heart of what we do. Our aim is that all will find their place in nature and reap the benefits of this practice.
