Nature in Mind

Greetings and Welcome!

I hope to contribute once a week by exploring things i feel passionate about and will write about ideas i find compelling in my professional work as a Counselor/Psychotherapist.  These include

  • compassion
  • the interplay between our connection to the Earth and our mental health
  • importance of community and connection
  • experience of the transpersonal
  • a return to ritual and ceremony to create the sacred in our lives
  • the power of voice

  1. Abby,
    Congratulations on figuring out how to add a blog to your website! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on deep subjects. Please consider sharing some things about the classes you teach at Rocky Mountain National Park and how they affect the people who attend, who feel a deeper connection to the Earth.
    Cheers,
    Mary

  2. Thanks Mary.
    Each year, in the summer, I teach day long field seminars at Rocky Mountain National Park for the nonprofit Rocky Mountain Conservancy. The focus of these classes is to bring people out of doors to get acquainted with the native plants of the bio-region. We take in their beauty of course, but also discuss their uses historically and in the present and these uses include edible, medicinal, ceremonial, tools and crafts, and drought- tolerant landscaping. This can include animal use as well, like food and pollination, for example. I get to share my enthusiasm and passion and love of place. Frankly, I don’t know the affect the experience has on participants. I do know I am planting seeds 🙂
