Ecotherapy Experience: Deep Listening to the Animist World
Be guided on a 1.5hr journey along a nearby nature trail at Gymea, utilising the Eco-walk Extension of theMain Rainforest Walk. Through deep listening, with the whole body/mind and heart/soul, we awaken to the song of the earth and the spirit of place. Geoff leads a journey into connection and kinship with thesounds, feelings, scents and subtle sense of aliveness in this place. Through attuning our whole selves to nature, we rediscover the aliveness of the world and deepen our ability to live as our deeper, animist self.
