Course Description: This is an interactive course that emphasizes community building by doing and sharing Nature activities. Communication takes place as part of our contact with natural areas while creating moments there that let the life of Earth teach.
Course Objectives: To validate from experience that we suffer our problems and unhappiness because we are socialized to deny the life of Nature and Earth’s dance. Moment-by-moment our fifty-four natural senses attach us to all that has preceded us and all that follows us. Senses that are wounded by abusive relationships remain wounded, so we feel and act accordingly until we create space for these senses to happily reattach to their origins in the purity of Nature/Earth’s self-correcting balance and beauty, not to substitutes for the wisdom of its dance. It is our nature-disconnecting attachments that too often make us produce and suffer our disorders.
