Meeting Soul in Nature: Creating Relationship in the Natural World
Amid today's chaos and faced with escalating climate change that is rapidly altering the natural world, how do we engage with nature, or what Sufi mystic Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee refers to as our anima mundi, the "soul of the world"? How do we reconnect our soul to the world's soul? Perhaps climate change is the opportunity the world needs to come together as neighbors, as one people, needing to help each other during a crisis, as we often do in lesser crises—entering into relationship, knowing we each share similar needs and desires.
In this workshop you will learn spiritually based practices as the means to reestablish relationship to each other and to the natural world. There are four seasonal categories of practices that will be explored and can be applied to work with a friend or a counselee: Spring-Creative, Summer-Relational, Fall-Movement, Winter-Meditative. We will discuss how these approaches offer a self-paced guide for encountering soul through nature. To deepen our inquiry, we will each participate in the practices, having unique and different experiences.
We will share with the group and in dyads with a format that draws on Parker Palmerงs Circles of Trust® approach, so that whatever needs to be said, or not, will be at the discretion of each participant. Nature may be providing us with an opportunity to become far closer than we have ever been able to do. Come explore establishing relationship through meeting our soul in nature.
