Taking Nature Awareness to a New Level- Laura Reeves- Workshops 2016
When I was young, I believed that the Earth would be better off if humans didn’t exist. It seemedlike wherever humans went, all that remained was a path of destruction. I didn’t want it to be this way. I loved nature, yet for all the time I spent hanging out in woods and meadows, I felt, on a deeper level, like I didn’t belong. Whenever I stepped into the woods, animals would flee in all directions, or loudly announce my presence like I was some sort of intruder. I felt like an alien. An outsider to outside. And it tore me up inside.A lot has changed since then.
Not only have I learned how to move in nature so as not to strike fear into everything around me, I have learned that humans are perfectly capable of being caretakers of the Earth and leaving a path of life and abundance behind.
In this fun and enlightening workshop, I will help you gain a deeper sense of place and belonging in nature. I will teach you how to fine-tune your senses to pick up on nature’s subtle clues and sync your body and mind to the flow of nature. By learning to ask the Sacred Question, you will develop your sense of curiosity and wonder even further. I will introduce you to the profound teachings of the Secret Spot so that you, too, can feel the magic that comes with getting to know one place really well. The knowledge you gain here will create the foundation you need to be a caretaker of the Earth.
