Deep Dive into Nature and Self: a four week online Solo journey – 26th of October to 16th of November 2022
26 octobre @ 19:00 - 16 novembre @ 21:30
For centuries, across many different cultures, humans have spent time alone in nature. This ancient practice reconnects us deeply to Self and to the living world around. It supports us with marking life transitions, stepping into new roles and finding clarity. For whatever intention may want to be lived, this practice holds many gifts for humanity and nature alike.
During the Deep Dive, we will guide you into connection with your own Self as reflected by Nature through embodiment practices, eco-soul centric development, eco-therapy and ceremony. The process is designed to deepen your relationship to Self and the place that holds you, while being supported by a community.
“To dwell on the land alone in reverence is a beautiful remembering of our profound humanness.”

Jenny is a Deep Ecologist recently returned to Ireland following the call of her homeland. Her work focuses on the relationship between humanity and the rest of the living world, and is deeply inspired by her own sense of belonging to living systems.
Drawing on her background in Natural Sciences and Ecology, and inspired by the ways that life informs life, her work draws on Eco-psychology, Spiritual Ecology and extensive training in Eco-therapy and Solo nature experiences. Listening to the living world is her most powerful guide!
