Ariana is a Mind Body Wellness Coach and Certified Nature Therapy Guide (Advanced) in the Corvallis, Oregon area. We started out the nature walk at…
Sacred Earth Prayer by Deepak Chopra You split me and tore my heart open, and filled me with love. You poured your spirit over, I knew you like I knew myself. My eyes are radiant with your light. My ears delight in your music. My nostrils are filled with your fragrance. My face is covered with your dew. You have made me see all things shining. You have made me see all things new. You have granted me perfect ease. And I have become like paradise. And in becoming like paradise, my soul is healed.It was such a joy to conduct a Nature Spirit Walk. The space that nature creates for people to express themselves freely may well be an amazing accompaniment to my wellness coaching. One of the participants was able to share during the walk some of the things that they were struggling with and I was so happy he felt comfortable doing so with me and the group. It is my hope that my deep reverence and fascination with nature will emanate from me and hopefully touch the participants on a deeper level. I also think my creativity in the design of these walks will really speak to people in regards to living a life more in alignment with their purpose, and having a safe space to offload stress. After reflecting on this walk, I realized how much I learned about myself and from the participants in the process. During the walk, I found myself feeling a little stressed out about what everyone was experiencing, and I just need to learn to relax and not force the process. It was great learning moment for me to be challenged by the loquacious tendencies of one of the participants because even though it threw me off a bit, I was able to see that if people are coming on nature walks to destress and connect with nature, they are likely not already going to be calm when then arrive! I now know that I need to be prepared for all of the rainbow of personalities that will come on my walks with me and be able to flex to their style of communication and needs while still taking into consideration the group as a whole. © Ariana Rintz
