A Nature-Based Online Journey to Discover Your Inner Essence and Cultivate Wildness
You are invited to journey in the natural world through our hybrid online circle to discover your inner essence and cultivate wildness. This circle will offer a chance for you to create deeper connection with yourself, others and nature through nature-based experiences that are simple, easily accessible, and can be used as a daily enhancement for creating peace and moving towards what you want most in life. Through reconnecting to our nature, this circle offers a supportive and transformative safe space to explore your inner world.
Our first circle begins Thursday, November 11, 2021 online from 6:00-8:00 pm MT. A Zoom link will be provided upon registration. There is limited space available so please register as soon as possible. To register please reach out to circle guides Zachary or Robbie. We chose Thursdays that do not fall on holidays to avoid missing a gathering. The 3 nature immersions occur every 3-5 weeks and are a way for us to gather in nature and further integrate our circle teachings. If you are unable to meet in person, an invitation with instructions will be provided for you to do a solo experiential.
At the beginning of each circle the guides will take time to present concepts such as Both/And, “I” Statements, Radical Freedom, and Confidentiality to guide the formation of a strong container for sharing and listening. Additionally, the concept of cleansing with various modalities will be brought to the circle, as well as an invitation to light a candle for each online session.
We will move through individual check-ins and use the topic themes of Return, Connect, Discover, Initiate, Explore, and Integrate for discussions in the circle. Depending on what is alive for most of the participants, we will explore a question or two about the current week’s theme and then transition to animating the theme through practices and ritual. In the closing 15 minutes, we will turn to take-aways, action statements, and blessings before the circle is closed.
