About Nature Based Guidance

“It never occurs to us to wonder how the earth sees us. Could it be possible that a landscape might have a deep friendship with you?” John O’Donohue

What I am offering you is a profound illumination of the power of your presence in nature & a journey into your subconscious where the invisible becomes visible. The invisible being your deepest desires & needs that have been conditioned to be quiet, to color in the lines, & to follow the societal linear order of things. The invisible being the stunning aliveness & breath of the trees, the flowers, the ground we walk on that we often do not hear in the hustle of everyday life.

This is your invitation to connect with nature in a way that opens greater clarity to make sense of your own life experiences, so that you can live a life of vitality, creativity, and beauty in connection with the earth. My commitment is to guide you in to the language of nature that is only revealed when the mind is radically attuned to the creativity of the imagination. Imagination illuminates the quiet corners of the subconscious where the unseen can be glimpsed.

Together, we travel into nature for a little over an hour to gain a deeper understanding of the subconscious, using an approach that is playful with a sense of celebration & reverence within nature. This is an approach that shifts perspective by re-framing neural pathways to heighten awareness of the lightness of the world, even when life is challenging.

My approach is based in Motivational Interviewing Counseling in combination with earth-based meditation practices, Gestalt  and parts works therapy. Though I use therapy based techniques, this is not a therapy session. This is a way to awaken your awareness of nature in a way that will be healing. calming, and heart opening. You will be guided in nature based meditations and given the chance to freely voice whatever situation in life you need clarity about. I reflect back to you what I heard and ask deeper questions. I don’t give fix it advice. An ah-ha clarity moment occurs. This is for those who have  moved through the threshold of the ‘dark night of the soul’ and are ready to integrate what they have learned.

This approach is co-facilitated by nature to collaboratively create an awakening experience by traveling into the unseen realm of nature. I call this ‘nature’s voice’. It’s a felt experiential sensation rather than a heard voice. This felt sense is like a lantern illuminating the inner landscapes of our lives. When your inner world brightens, your quality of looking will expand into seeing the beauty & compassion that surrounds you. There comes a point in the session where nature takes hold by giving us hints into our subconscious mind. Much like dream interpretation, it is up to us to decipher what these messages are reflecting back to us.

What I am offering you is way to gaining essential trust that life has the best intentions for you. With this trust, you can become unwavering in your ability to create a life that illuminates your full potential. In turn, you will awaken your own unique offerings that benefit the collective as a whole.
