Easing Back to Life

Nature-based practices to restore your

pandemic-weary mind, heart and body

 

 

 

June 10th – August 12th, 2021

10AM PT, 1PM ET, 6PM UK

Join with other like-minded women for support and wisdom
to reflect, revive and begin anew.

Easing Back to Life is an opportunity to come back to life through intentional nature-based practices that will awaken your senses, enliven your spirit, and restore your sense of wholeness after a year in which so much was taken away. As the pandemic eases and many voices urge us to plunge into the frenzy of our old lives, there is a greater wisdom that awaits if we ease back to life. This is a chance to reflect on who we are now, join a supportive community of women, and learn some practices that will support a conscious, intentional re-emergence.

The sessions will include a mix of deep dives into nature-based practices that the guides have found to be the most healing and enlivening, and a community conversation process to deepen personal insights. In your free time between sessions we ask you to try these practices out in natural locations near your home.

“Spending time in nature with a broader vision for my life has yielded incredible insights. Setting time aside to contemplate both my personal and professional hopes. And what a lovely bonus to be in a reflective, supportive community with strong, interesting women!”

Karen Marie Christenson, St. Paul, Minnesota

Your Guides

Beverly Winterscheid, Ph.D.

I’m a deep-rooted, heart-forward guide for the voice of Nature speaking to and through you. With 20+ years of corporate and academic experience in strategy & leadership development, I now focus on guiding women to cultivate their unique talents in growing more just, equitable and Earth-affirming families, organizations and communities. That’s why I launched the Center for Nature & Leadership, and especially, the Generative Council. What better teachers are there for most situations in life than Mother Nature and a community of talented women?

Guide: Cary Gaunt, Ph.D.

Two great loves comprise the heart of who I am and the work I do in the world. One is a profound connection with the earth forged by my childhood on a small farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and honed through a lifetime of listening to the land, exploring and living in natural places. The other is a deep spirituality comprised of contemplative and nature-based practices, Soulcraft™, spiritual discernment, and wilderness rites of passage. I bring these two great loves together in my work as a sustainability leader and contemplative practitioner and teacher. My commitment is to support organizations and individuals in moving beyond sustainability to restoration and flourishing.
