Poetry of Nature | Midwinter | NanLeah

"Being in nature is not only inspiring, it also has medical and psychotherapeutic potential. By experiencing nature, we place our body in the original functional circle made of humans and the environment from which we emerged. We put two matching puzzle pieces together – us and nature into one whole.”


~ Clemens G. Arvay



Dear Poetry of Nature Friends,


Welcome! Welcome to Poetry of Nature, PON as we often fondly refer to it. The Poetry of Nature is a yearlong journey that resonates with many who seek to connect with the natural world for healing and poetic expression. It's a journey for those who seek to match the puzzle pieces and manifest wholeness. We’re excited and happy you’ve chosen to spend your year with us! This is the fourth year Geoff and I have offered PON, and year six of IPM’s series “Year of Poetic Medicine”.


Throughout our year together, Geoff and I will offer poetry, inspirational quotes, photos of the natural world, and our unique Nature reflections and experiences. We’ll get to know our inner and outer landscapes through natural rhythms like the seasons’ dances; moon's faces and phases; ebb and flow; dawn and dusk. We’ll discover and deepen our connections with the birds, animals, plants, trees, and other Beings that inhabit our neck of the woods. Through these, and other seasonal and monthly areas of focus, we’ll dive deeply into Nature through poetry reading, writing, sharing, and reflection.


Perhaps like us, you yearn for clearing, and inner and outer stillness. You feel ready to lead a more spacious, mindful and meaningful life. Your body is asking to be listened to. You are being called to live by heart, mind, and soul. Poetry-writing and sensitivity to the natural world are open portals to this more soulful aliveness.


We welcome and invite your shared Nature experiences. These connections guide us to our feelings, our wildness. This is the most important time in our existence to be doing this healing work.
