Together participants will explore many topics and questions… * How can natural settings increase the benefits of prayer, journeying, ritual, and meditation? * What are effective responses to the Pope's Eco-Encyclical, an urgent call for personal actions that mitigate climate change? * What is the human role in nature? * How can we collaborate with unseen beings to become a beneficial, healing element in ecosystem health? The gatherings are open to any spiritual practice, but an inquisitive mind and compassionate heart are required.
