Exposing ourselves to big or small awe-inspiring experiences, especially those in nature, taps into our feelings and emotions and reminds us we are a part of something bigger. In a world where many people feel lonely and disconnected, our relationship with nature–our life source–is the foundation to our sense of belonging and purpose. Finding awe deepens our connection with the natural world, ourselves, and others. In this workshop, we will examine our own story with nature, stretching back to our earliest memories of the natural world. We will share our moments of awe, unearth our feelings around nature through photos, explore our ecological self through a series of reflective questions, and find awe in the Garden by observing through different perspectives. Sharing and discussion will be encouraged!
