Are you a therapist, coach, medical provider, or other helping professional? Do you give so much of your heart and soul, but struggle to make time for you? Do you take time to enjoy the many healing benefits of our natural world? To connect to your own innate creativity and expression?Do you recognize what drains and what fuels you? Make an intentional practice of connecting with yourself and your truest longings in order to be of the greatest service to others?
Creativity + nature combined offer a unique opportunity to experience yourself as part of the greater whole…to dig into your senses. Using the natural beauty of the earth with creative self-expression, you’ll be invited into the healing power of the elements by meeting your own beauty, balance, and wonder mirrored through the landscape, your art, and peers.
Our inner nature can be seen in the outer world when we slow down and observe the earth’s innate intelligence and vice versa. Staying in touch with the rhythm of nature and connecting with our own sensory capacities through the sound of the wind, touch of water, smell of dirt, etc. allows us to merge with and hear the wise voice of nature.Seeing yourself in this way allows you to connect deeply to the collective wisdom of nature in order to connect to yourself, your loved ones, the greater community, and the natural world. It invites healing and growth.
This day long retreat will gift you with the time and space to explore your natural strengths, your heart’s desires, and the inherent wisdom of the body as a natural guide.
You’ll leave with an understanding of what burnout and compassion fatigue look like as well as how creativity and connection to self, others, and nature can act as prevention tools.
Let the power of art and nature nourish and nurture you while planting a seed that allows you to curiously explore how you can be enough personally, professionally; for yourself, your friends + family , and clients or patients. Learn the resiliency skills necessary to stay grounded and centered in the face of nature’s ever changing cycles.
I invite you to join in soaking up the healing benefits of Mother Nature along with the power of art, movement, writing, and more.
