Enjoy an “Earth Tale” that will help you recall some of your own. Then in groups, share what comes to mind from your adventures with the natural world. Each group then selects one person to share their tale to the entire group, as time permits. Sometimes the tale may not be a story about the earth/natural world, but it turns out to be. No need to write one down, unless you want to. Just speak from the heart. Surprise yourself! At all ages, interacting with the natural world is critical to our growth: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Although our life path experiences vary, these experiences or lack of them, form who we are and who we are becoming. Facilitated by Elisa Pokral. Register by 11/7.
