Workshop leader Jennifer Young

For hundreds of generations, our ancestors’ primary relationship was with the earth. They felt themselves part of an intricate community of life. Today, most of us live in towns, cities, and suburban neighborhoods.

We may no longer live in the wilderness, but it still lives within us, and connecting to that part of ourselves can be a powerful and healing process.

In this workshop, participants explored in writing and discussion a variety of landscapes: deserts, forests, oceans, rivers, and mountains, seeking to discover what these landscapes bring up for us, and how they can empower, inspire and support our lives.
