Special Workshop August 13!

 Seeing, Sensing, Moving, Being – Ways to Deeply Connect with Nature 
Saturday, August 13, 2022 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Sandy, OR
I am very excited about this  one-day workshop I will be doing in partnership with Tom Brown III of FutureNature
People need nature, we need nature connection. Nature was our first home; it gives us strength, it gives us joy. 

It has been a difficult few years for humans…pandemic, isolation, violence, and a real loss of feeling connected. Our goal is to help you regain that feeling of connection, connection to yourself, connection to the natural world around us; really, connection to home. 

In this full day workshop, we will guide you through engaging your senses and learning to move in concert with the more than human world. We will share the philosophies behind nature connection and information from research on the health benefits of time spent in the forest. You will feel the pleasures of presence, learn to walk the way our ancestors did, moving with the ebb and flow of our surroundings, utilize wide-angle vision, and explore the more than human world through your senses. We will teach you skills and practices you can incorporate into your daily life to increase your well-being and feeling of connectedness. 

We all crave peace, love, joy, and purpose. These can be found within. Through learning to truly connect with nature, you will see how you can connect with these things within yourself.

I have been a sustainability professional for over 20 years and vegetable gardener for nearly as many. We rely on our garden to provide almost all our produce and what we don't get from the garden we try to source from local farmers. With children ranging from 3 years to 22 years old, I have a wide variety of taste buds to make happy. Cooking from the garden means needing to find variety in how we use whatever vegetable or fruit is in peak to keep my family interested and excited.
