Offered through the Nova Scotia Outdoor Leadership Development Program

With all the talk of being green, have you ever taken the time to really
consider your own relationship with the natural world? This workshop,
relying on the ancient wisdom of the Medicine Wheel, holism and the four
elements, provides participants with the opportunity to seek some clarity of
their own relationship status as citizens within the greater organic whole.

Whether you are a seasoned nature educator or simply curious about
developing a better understanding of your own interaction with the natural
world, this workshop is designed with the individual quest in mind. This
unique workshop uses art, mediation, visualization, energy exercises,
reflection and small group discussion. All that is asked of participants is
that you come committed to your own natural world journey while upholding
the respect for others on their way as well.

of much of the malady of our modern era.
