These classes, workshops, walks and talks offer both spiritual grounding in nature, as well as specific practices that open us to the Divine Mystery and a lived loving relationship with the Earth. They can be taught in-person or online, in many forms, lengths and locations, and can be easily tailored to different settings, faith traditions and audiences. Join us for an upcoming event or contact us to bring one of these programs to your organization.
Join us for a beautifully-filmed, self-directed six-week video series exploring the deep spiritual lessons we can learn from our ancient elders -- the trees. We’ll explore themes like gratitude and reciprocity, connection and communion, hope and healing.
Coming 10/6 - 11/10/22 in a Guided Weekly format which includes weekly online discussions led by program authors Beth Norcross and Leah Rampy.
