“One day in nature with your caring suggestions and warmth and careful listening has made a surprising difference in how I see and think about things. I’ve told a few friends about you — now they want to know all about it. But how does one convey magic?!” Barbara F.
What is this wildness we value in nature? And what is this self we inhabit? And what might we learn from the juncture of the wildness — without and within — about navigating our turbulent times with greater passion, courage, joy and ease?
- What: a retreat day with light hiking intermixed with structured exercises and personal solo time
- Where: in the Santa Fe National Forest, either on the Santa Fe side or the Cowles’ side (about 30 minutes north of the village of Pecos). We will select the location a few days prior to the hike, based on weather and other conditions.
- Who: fellow nature lovers
- When: 9:30am-4pm, Saturday April 21
- Logistics: Maps and additional information will be provided upon registration. Plan to bring clothing, food and water for a day in the mountains.
- Investment: $100 per person includes a $35 donation or 1 year membership fee to New Mexico Wilderness Alliance
Join us for a playful day in the forest among the trees, wind, animals and sunshine. We’ll integrate ecology, poetry and mythology, with insights from neurobiology and eco-psychology sprinkled throughout. Throw in ancient indigenous practices for wisdom gathering and we’ll share an inspiring and provocative day of re-wilding.
