    031 | Reconnecting to Joy Through the Healing Power of Nature in Community with Women at Soul Full Camp with Jenn Laforet

    Who creates a life without joy?

    That's so structured that everything must go a particular way?

    That's exactly where I found myself—stuck in my life doing all the right things with little room for joy, the unexpected or better than I knew to ask for.

    The awareness of that seven years ago began the unearthing.

    It took me six years to allow myself to be in community with women and leave room for the unexpected because, at camp, you never know what kind of fun will turn the corner. The connection you might make. The conversation you might have. It's all so powerful and personal.

    I remember last August thinking, can I really allow myself to do this?

    Am I brave and bold enough to allow myself to be vulnerable in that space?

    I wasn't sure.

    By the end of that first camp, I knew why I was there.

    In June, we talked about different ways that nature can nurture and support us as we navigate different seasons of our lives. For a long time, I really felt pulled to be in nature whenever anything felt too heavy or unmanageable. If I wasn't sure which direction to take personally or professionally, I've often found myself seeking the forest.

    So much of that time was me thinking I had to be alone in nature and not allow other people to support me. That continues to be one of my greatest lessons over the past five years. I don't have to do it alone. Many people in my life want to support me. That would love nothing more than for me to reach out.

    This episode reflects on my journey of allowing myself to be in community with other women and connect on a deeper, meaningful level in nature.

    If you're used to doing everything yourself, it can be scary to reach out.

    030 | Softening Your Gaze on Imperfections as You Find Your Path Forward through Experiential Connections in the Natural Environment with Erin Teigen

    030 | Softening Your Gaze on Imperfections as You Find Your Path Forward through Experiential Connections in the Natural Environment with Erin Teigen

    In this episode, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Erin Teigen.

    Erin is a clinical social worker, who offers nature-based and animal-assisted therapy and coaching at her private practice, Elevation Ecotherapy. The practice is based on her holistic farm, Heartwood Meadows, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the United States. She finds meaning in offering a well-being haven for individuals and families to cultivate sustainable resilience and empower holistic growth through experiential connections within nature.

    "Nature can be incredibly helpful for releasing that judgement and softening your gaze on imperfections. There are many times in our lives when we can feel that there are failures and a demand to be perfect. When we're out in nature with the trees, flowers, and birds, they're not looking at us and judging our appearance, our success at our jobs, or our ability to stay in a marriage. They're just seeing if we treat their safe space with respect."  

    The desire to soften your gaze on your own imperfections is your invitation to press play on this episode. 

    Insight delivered with deep care is always close at hand in conversation with Erin. 

    It's my pleasure to share her with you.

    029 | From Scared to Sacred with Annie Red Bird

    029 | From Scared to Sacred with Annie Red Bird

    In this episode. I have the pleasure of introducing you to Annie Red Bird and her signature message #fromscaredtosacred with the vibrational magic of nature. 

    Annie is a creative and intuitive channel with a special place in her heart for deep feelers, caregivers, and those highly sensitive. She has helped thousands restore the Sanctuary of Self and create a personalized sacred, healing space for sustenance, communion, and care of their souls. 

    As an author, designer, consultant, and advocate, she has pioneered bridging the mind, body, heart, and spirit with the healing energies of nature to cultivate peace, ease, beauty, and balance through her company, Red Bird Restorative Enterprises. 

    When she's not tenaciously helping others reclaim and create sacred space within and around themselves and unearth their own unique restored and radiant path home to Sanctuary, she's travelling and adventuring with her husband, Steve. Their son, gardening, farming, and training to drive a tractor on her own soon. 

    You can't create positive change in your life in the energy of fear. 

    We are enveloped in sacredness when we are on the path of nature. 

    We see creation everywhere. 

    When we allow ourselves to acknowledge our own sacredness, we can take that next positive step forward in our life. 

    The desire to reconnect is your invitation to press play on today's episode.

    028 | Reconnect to Your Sense of Self One Moment at a Time with the Healing Power Nature through the Practice of Forest Bathing with Cat de Wit-Peijs

    028 | Reconnect to Your Sense of Self One Moment at a Time with the Healing Power Nature through the Practice of Forest Bathing with Cat de Wit-Peijs

    In this episode. I have the pleasure of introducing you to Cat de Wit-Peijs.

    Cat is the founder of Forest Bathing Wicklow.

    After seven years of sharing her love of Ireland as a tour guide, Cat trained as a forest bathing guide in 2021 to share the benefits she experienced in the garden of Ireland, as Wicklow is affectionately known, with others.

    There are so many healing powers present in nature.

    During the first few months of lockdown, people were desperate to connect with other people again, but if you met people in the street, people would only talk about how horrible Covid had been.

    Forest bathing allowed people to connect with themselves and each other.

    Posing questions like:

    What is happening in nature at this moment?

    What is happening within yourself at this moment?

    It wasn't about what do you do for a living?

    Where are you from?

    The competitiveness of society is released, everyone is equal, and it's all about what is happening at this moment. What are you experiencing? There's no winning or losing.

    You'll experience everything you need when you allow yourself to open up to it. Allowing yourself to feel anonymous in the community and the forest will enable you to activate healing at a deeper level.

    It will enable you to release self-editing and judgement because no one knows who you are. No one knows what your story is. Whether it's the story that you tell yourself or a story that others have placed on you.

    The desire to reconnect to the healing power of the forest is your invitation to press play on this episode.

    Rich insight is always close at hand in conversation with Cat.

    It's my pleasure to share her with you.

    Here's how you can connect with Cat and learn more about the tools and resources she mentioned in the episode:

    026 | Releasing the Idea that Everything is a Lesson to Reclaim Being Present In Your Own Life with Dorota Clifford

    In this episode, I have the pleasure of sitting down again with Dorota Clifford, an ordained minister, published author, teacher, spiritual mentor and psychic medium.

    This conversation with Dorota dives deep into lessons, personal responsibility, acceptance, roles and how they show up in your life.

    She cuts right to the chase in the opening with this piece of wisdom: "Everything you've learned up to this point is put to the test. Are you seeing what you need to see? Lessons are everyday things. They're not just at that particular time. Not Everything is a lesson."

    If you've ever found yourself stuck in a cycle of asking yourself: what's the lesson here? This episode is for you.

    Moments of connection and clarity are always close at hand in conversation with Dorota.

    It's my pleasure to share her with you in this episode.
