Nature Meditations for Healing and Awareness

Ref: C3842151

To learn how to connect more deeply with the healing powers of nature through observation, meditation and myth. A quiet, safe space for the unfolding of your spiritual path. We are all on different paths but these paths can meet and we can learn a lot from each other. There are many ways into this course but if you have a love of nature and/ or an interest in mindfulness then this course is for you. The greatest teacher on this course will be nature her self and my primary role will be to help you access and communicate that healing space. iI is vital that we heal our relationship with nature if we are to halt our wanton destruction of our beautiful planet; healing self and planet in a virtuous circle. The garden is an enclosed space, managed wonderfully for wildlife and a private space to learn and meditate in.
