Ever wonder why you are here and what you are supposed to be doing? Or, perhaps you need help making an important decision and are waiting for a sign from above that never seems to come? Redirect your attention and discover the wisdom and wonder in the messages that are spoken to you from the natural world. Oct 27, 9:00a.m. - 6:30p.m. Instructor: Lauren Nalder, BSc. 8 CEUs

Nature’s energies and spiritual forces guide and assist us in varying ways. They empower those who are aware to discover new meaning, shift perception and move in a new direction. Learn to recognize and interpret messages sent to you from Spirit. Gain insight and understanding into your life as you learn the wisdom teachings of animals, plants and stones. Discover how the cycles of the seasons parallel your own natural rhythms, and how this influences you in your journey through life. Activate your inner knowing and awaken your innate ability to heal as you realize and strengthen your spiritual connections. Learn to speak the language of Spirit, and begin experiencing the world through new eyes.

Upon completion of the seminar you will be able to:

  • Describe how Spirit speaks to us through the natural world
