Our next call is on Thursday, October 3. Patt Osborne will be hosting guest speaker Margaret Emerson who will speak on the topic of  Using Contemplative Time in Nature for  Self Development
Numerous studies have show that nature can be a powerful healing force on the psyche. Combining the positive mental and physical benefits of exercise (hiking) and time in a natural environment can ease stress, increase creativity and promote self-reflection. Margaret Emerson will explain why she promotes "contemplative hiking" as a way to become present to the inner and outer wild, access inner wisdom and re-discover one's soul.

Margaret Emerson holds a Master's degree in ecopsychology and is the author of the book Contemplative Hiking Along the Colorado Front Range. She leads groups on silent, contemplative hikes through her MeetUp group and facilitates nature-based retreats a couple times a year. She also works full-time as a freelance writer and designer. You can learn more about Margaret and her offerings at Contemplative Hiking.
