Event Type

I’m excited to be co-leading a session on “Reflecting on Spiritual Moments in Nature” with my colleague, Patti Bailie, as part of this exciting day-long conference on nature-based early childhood programs. Join us to learn from cutting edge educators who are redefining what’s possible in early childhood education.

Our workshop description: Spirituality is a system of spiritual development that provides a force that connects us with the natural world. This workshop will provide opportunities for participants to explore the connection between spiritual development and nature in order to intentionally provide experiences for young children that recognize spiritual moments in nature. Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on their own spiritual moments in and with nature through guided hikes and jour- naling. We will spend most of our time outdoors so dress for the weather.
