Nature Journaling for Ecological Re - STORY - ation
“It’s not just the land that is broken, but more importantly, our relationship to land...we can’t meaningfully proceed with healing, with restoration, without “re-story-ation.” In other words, our relationship with land cannot heal until we hear its stories. But who will tell them?”
In this course you will...
Learn how your personal nature journal practice and connection to the land can help us create a better future together
Start with gratitude for the gifts of nature and becoming rooted in a practice that nourishes you in a deep way
Gain confidence and let go of perfectionism
Discover new things about your local ecosystem and how they fit into the bigger picture, through space and time
Explore how being who YOU are and sharing your unique gifts and perspective can help you make the biggest impact on the world
Be in an intimate, inspiring community of other nature journalers on the same journey.
Get personalized support, guidance and feedback.

It's technically an hour and a half, but in past cohorts we've often stayed up to an extra half-hour if we're having a really good discussion, so you might want to plan for that
If this group fills up and there's enough interest, I'll create a second group. Let me know what day/time works for you.

"Any class with Rebecca will be a joy! She is a thought leader in the nature journaling movement. She is approachable, encouraging, and kind, and challenges us to think about our connection to nature in a rich and personal way. Rebecca's participation and leadership in the nature journaling community has brought greater inspiration, connection, and depth to many of us and has deepended and enriched our practice."
- John Muir Laws
“You should absolutely do it if you have even the tiniest inkling or interest in doing it. It’s going to advance your nature journaling experience, or even if you’re not a nature journaler it’s just going to open up your connection with nature in a new way that’s really worth exploring. So I would highly encourage anyone considering it to do it.”
