Laura Silverman is a creative director and the founding naturalist of The Outside Institute - a gem located in the Catskills that connects people to the healing and transformative powers of Nature through guided hikes, foraging, wildcrafting workshops and botanical mixology.
Laura’s desire to share her deep love of Nature inspired this venture. By nurturing humanity’s innate affinity for the wild, she hopes to inspire joyful awareness and an essential reciprocity between all beings. The Outside Institute, has published two volumes of its Field Guide to the Hudson & Upper Delaware Valleys and is about to release their third.
In today’s conversation Laura shares her personal relationship with Nature and what we can gain by embracing our childlike exploration of the natural world. We discuss nature as our biggest mirror and How to be in a reciprocal relationship with the land.
