Wildness, Enchantment & Hope

Wildness, Enchantment & Hope: Deepening Our Engagement with Nature is now available as an online retreat. It will consist of four, two-and-a-half hour sessions spread out over the weekend of October 20–22.

We appreciate the challenges presented by a weekend online event. Over the course of the weekend we will remain mindful of this, and offer plenty of off-screen time for movement, self-care, quiet reflection, and meals. We will encourage participants to get outside and connect with the natural world on your doorstep.

Here is the schedule for the weekend:

Session 1: Friday evening 7:00 – 9:30 pm ET

Session 2: Saturday morning 10:00 am – 12:30 pm ET

Session 3: Saturday afternoon 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm ET

Session 4 : Sunday morning 10:00 am – 12:30 pm ET

We hope this retreat gives us an opportunity to recognize our roles in both ecological breakdown and ecological renewal. Wildness, Enchantment, and Hope: Deepening our Engagement with Nature holds an opportunity to navigate a shifting landscape with renewed energy and joy.
