Reconnecting with Nature Retreat – Wendy Foden
May 25 @ 6:00 pm - May 27 @ 1:00 pm
Those working to care for nature face a distinct suite of challenges. Love of nature is the foundation of what we do, but we’re often behind computers, confined in cities, and grappling with the day-to-day decline of the places and creatures we love. How do we find ways to nurture ourselves, rekindle our passion for nature, and continue our work with vitality and joy?
Our weekend retreat is for anyone who feels the need for rest, reconnection and recharging. In the beautiful setting of the Tara Rokpa Centre, we’ll spend time tending to ourselves through meditation, mindful movement, quietness, eating delicious and healthy vegetarian meals, chatting round the campfire and walking in the beautiful Groot Marico veld. Through self-reflection and group sessions, we’ll explore some of the shared and individual challenges Environment Carers face, as well as how we can reconnect to nature’s fundamental elements. We’ll have the opportunity to explore our personal missions, strategies for nurturing ourselves and finding the support that each us needs.
Through the rest, care, good company and time in nature, we aim to help you to recharge your batteries. We also hope the time together will help you to build support and connectedness within our growing Environment Carer community. While the beautiful Groot Marico environment makes feeding a love of nature easy, we hope that it also creates ongoing momentum for you to tend to yourself with care, and to thrive in your valuable work.
