Infused Gratitude ~
Thursday, March 4 @ 6 PM - 7:30 PM
Nature Wisdom ~ Relationships ~ Human Connection
Greetings Walk2Connect Co-op Members!
We are excited to be hosting monthly Co-op Member-only virtual gatherings that connect us to one another alongside fun and educational programming. ; )
Gratitude is one of our most natural human emotions--AFTER the fact! The surge of joy, relief, happiness, and elation that we feel when something happens or does not happen may even make us "Woop!" with celebration. This powerful emotion can fill the room and elevate our mood for days. Imagine if we practiced feeling gratitude BEFORE the experience itself.... How might this radical approach to gratitude change our every day? How might it shift our feelings of anxiety or confidence?
Join Walk2Connect Core-Owner Maria Rosa Galter, a Nature-Connected Life and Soul Guide and founder of Walking Inspiritus, as she invites you to explore how to use the power of gratitude to live from a place of love even when we face great challenges. Maria is joined by Sheri Peterson, a fellow graduate of Earth Based Institute and, like Maria, a nature connected life coach.
Sheri is a certified nature connected coach by the Earth Based Institute, where she continues as a student mentor. She is currently coaching clients through her company, Your PATH Coach,LLC, where PATH stands for Personal Accountability To Harmony. Her passion is to walk alongside seekers, partnering with them on their path towards the change they seek with the goal of helping them find harmony. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Ball State University and currently resides in beautiful Colorado. She is a Walking Movement Leader with Walk2Connect and a Row Coach at the Row House, where she encourages movement, self-awareness, and personal growth.
Through intention setting, visualizations, journaling, and conversations, we will practice a new way of BEING as we flow from a place of GRATITUDE.
Please RSVP by using the RSVP feature below. We will be sending you Zoom login information a few days before the event. Please also encourage and invite your peers to become Co-op Members so they can join us for these gatherings and for future walks, events, and offerings.
We are so grateful to EACH and every one of you for being alongside of our Walk2Connect community in this time!
Saturday, March 20 @ 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Cost: $55 for non-members; $45 for Walk2Connect MembersOn the day of the Spring Equinox–a day of equal darkness and light–let nature’s wisdom guide you to balance. By exploring what the mystics say about the "Cosmic Wheel of Nature" and creating our own, we will explore how to ride this wheel with equilibrium. Venture into a pristine, secluded natural environment where you will integrate a celebration of the season of rebirth and welcome new life within you. As we move in the fresh air, experience soul-healing connection with nature, and share with others in a supportive environment, we will root into the wisdom that Nature's Cycles offer us now.We will also be practicing Qoya during this wander, a body-based movement practice. Qoya is based on the simple idea that through movement, we remember our essence as women is wise, wild and free. The movements in Qoya reflect these themes: Wise—movement connected with breath, Wild—the experience of moving the way your body wants to move, and Free—the freedom to find pleasure in our bodies without focusing on how they look. We reclaim our capacity to access our inner wisdom, express ourselves authentically, and practice being true to ourselves in the midst of life’s blessings and challenges. The very best thing about Qoya is that there is no way to do it wrong, and the way you know you are doing it right is that it feels right to you!
Wear and Bring:
- Take time to immerse yourself with the healing sights, sounds and smells of nature.
- Walk and be with the land through guided meditations to activate your intuition and help you gain insight
