Practicing Spirituality in Nature (Spirituality and Practice)

Source: Spirituality and Practice

Edward Abbey once described his essays as “prose psalms which celebrate the divine beauty of the natural world.” Come along on a retreat conducted via email and explore all the ways you can discover and celebrate the Divine in nature. You will receive 40 emails, each with a short quotations and a related practice suggestion.

You will savor the spiritual insights of Barbara Kingsolver, Linda Hogan, Barry Lopez, Jane Goodall, Joyce Rupp, Annie Dillard, Kent Nerburn, Rick Bass, Diane Ackerman, Wendell Berry, and many others. These poets, essayists, and naturalists tutor in the spiritual practices of wonder, play, reverence, and attention.

Use this retreat as a way to enrich your experiences outdoors any time of year. Find out what prompted Henry David Thoreau to proclaim “My profession is always to be alert, to find God in nature, to know God’s lurking places, to attend to all the oratorios and the operas in nature.”

(6 CEHs for Chaplains available.)
