Meeting at the Patuxent Research Wildlife Refuge, I introduced my participant to meditation and soaking up the sun as a way to enter the hiking trail and leave worries behind. She spotted a frog and noticed the changes from forest to wetland to meadow. We enjoyed an activity that explored how connected we are to all water sources. We explored how to see life and greenery during a period of dormancy and how powerful connecting with trees is.
The participant noted the walk made her think of all of the things she hasn’t experienced in her 50 years of life, and she wasn’t sure what has been stopping her. She observed that she didn’t let anything stop her coming on the nature walk, and pondered how to translate that to not allowing herself to stall on everything else.
