The 4 Gateways to Nature Connection
Facilitated by Sky Maria Buitenhuis and Marc Barker. Come experience and learn the four gateways of Heart/Soul, Body, Mind, and Spirit through the modalities of the 8 Shields Deep Nature Connection and Cultural Repair practices, Forest Therapy/Bathing, The Way of Council, the Work-That-Re-Connects, indigenous medicine wheels and nature-based ritual & ceremony. Key tools experienced and explored will be sensory restoration and nature as life’s guide, play, curiosity & the art of questioning, tracking & bird-language, the transformational power of fire, and grief-tending/ritual/ceremony to heal our connection capacity.
