DEEP GREEN JOURNEY

Creating space in the Wild to find Healing, Wholeness and Delight

 

THE JOURNEY BEGINS...

Sue Monk Kidd asks the question: "What has happened to our ability to dwell in the unknowing?" This, we believe is the key to our own healing as nature provides a threshold to help us take that step into quiet vulnerability. The wild invites us into that space to dwell deeply with ourselves, with one another, with the Divine Presence to allow space to become our most authentic selves.

Deep Green Journey exists to create space in the natural world for people to discover sacred healing, connection, and creativity within themselves, their community and their understanding of God.  We offer Forest Therapy Walks, backpacking trips and retreat opportunities to individuals and groups, always drawing upon nature’s wisdom as a conduit for learning.  An important part of our work is to connect with individuals who are limited in their ability to access the natural world, for any reason, so that all may discover the gift of space and time in the wild.

"Contemplative tradition has its roots in a call to be in intimate connection with nature, the places of wilderness and other wild edges that reflect our inner reality.  This call to the edges, a call to wilderness  - to that which lies beyond our domesticated, safe and secure lives.  Nature reminds us of the messiness and beauty of things."
