Finding Your Soul in Nature
April 19-21, 2019
This transformative program combines immersion in nature, meditative experience, contemplative writing, philosophy, and science to create a journey that allows us to recover and rediscover the world’s mystery. This is an integrative process that combines the scientific and the spiritual, the intellectual and the personal, to make sense of how these seemingly disparate approaches are complementary components of our nature and the natural world.
Spending time in nature helps us reconnect with the natural world and our own inner lives. Many of us are operating, sometimes unconsciously, with a worldview that leaves us feeling isolated. That isolation is caused by our way of thinking. Our ideas and beliefs are what separate us from our own true nature, by separating us from nature itself. Our ideas and beliefs can change through reflection, many forms of conscious attention, and the practice of dialogue.
This retreat is an awakening to the ideas and beliefs that separate us from the natural world, ourselves, and others. Robin Weeks will introduce four antidotes to this separation. Learn and experience a new worldview in the beautiful, inspiring, and powerful setting of Sedona, Arizona. These practices open you up to connection, to mystery, and to wonder. Rediscover a relationship with something that may seem lost, but is there if you are ready to awaken to it.
“The shifts in worldview you shared, and our dialogue about them, caused me to experience nature differently than I otherwise would have. I loved thinking of the mountains, trees, and nature all having consciousness.” –Workshop participant
“This workshop is leading a much needed change in the way the world and nature is experienced – it is a breakthrough experience.” –Workshop participant
“Robin put so much research and so much of himself into developing this truly transformative experience.” –Workshop participant
