Wandering in Nature
It is in nature-based settings we learn to court the world that we live in, with its miraculous diversity of life. It is here that we encounter astonishing beings and numinous experiences that bring us fully home into our larger story. Here we gather the threads of our larger mythopoetic story, or soul story, that we carry as a gift for our people. Consciously becoming aware of these threads facilitates the weaving of a tapestry that becomes a map to our way of being in the world.
