Exploring Nature’s Ways
May 18-19, 2018 | Cost: $90
Do you like to experience the sacred and the spirit of the natural world? The landscape and woodlands of St. Anthony’s provides endless opportunities to immerse in the mystery, awe, and wonder of the natural world. Some of nature’s ways that will be experienced and shared are the Way of Trees, Water, Stones, Wind, Clouds, Sound, Wild, Abundance, and Transformation. Frequently there are connections with our own lives as well as the healing of being with Mother Earth, our other mother.
The key resource is the book, Nature’s Ways, by Philip Sutton Chard.
