The Wild Scribe: An Introduction to Nature Journaling
Recorded July 21 2020
Nature journaling is a powerful tool to enliven your creativity and deepen your connection to the natural world. At this time, many of us feel disconnected from our normal lives, livelihoods and loved ones. Guided by Mary Reynolds Thompson, author of Reclaiming the Wild Soul: How Earth’s Landscapes Restore Us to Wholeness, you will discover that this journaling practice can be transformative, re-wilding not only your language but also your psyche and soul.
Mary is an award-winning writer, a facilitator of poetry and journal therapy, and a pioneer in the emerging field of spiritual ecology. In this ninety minute webinar, you will learn how to forge a more intimate connection to the earth and tap into the wisdom of nature. This will support your own path of transformation and provide solace in difficult times.
Whether your intention is to learn to write for publication or for personal growth, this webinar will give you a taste of just how much nature journaling can transform your relationship to nature and help you uncover your own writing voice. Eco-therapists and forest bathing guides looking to use nature journaling with clients will also benefit greatly from Mary’s session.

What if this wasn’t only a time of crisis but a time of dreaming? A time to imagine a different kind of world than the one we have now? In this experiential workshop, we will explore how the archetypal landscapes of Deserts, Forests, Oceans and Rivers, Mountains, and Grasslands can inform and inspire us during these transformational times, at both a personal and a planetary level. Please bring a journal and pen to the session. We will write together and share during this interactive 60 minute session.
