August 17: Rewilding Work: A Guided Nature Walk

35.00

Learn what the natural world has to say about your career.

Rewilding Work is an invitation to put your career in its appropriate place: as an important but singular piece of your lived experience. This guided nature walk offers physical benefits such as lower levels of stress and spiritual benefits such as clarity about yourself and where you’re being invited to grow in this season of your worklife.

This month’s topic: Strengths

In this one of a kind workshop, you’ll enjoy:

  • Decreased levels of stress hormones and an increase in well-being (more information here)

  • An inner state of calm

  • New insights into your unique giftedness and abilities

  • Grounded advice about how to tap into your strengths and leverage them in your career

“There is a wilderness in every person.” - Toko-pa Turner, Belonging

Amidst the flora and fauna, you’ll learn mindfulness techniques, give your body the gift of relaxation that comes with being outdoors, and gain deep insights into what your career needs at this time. A general outline of our time together includes:

  • An introduction to the concept of Rewilding Work

  • Crossing the “Threshold of Connection”

  • A sensory walking exercise

  • Breathing and grounding exercise

  • A silent walking exercise

  • Sitting and reflecting via journaling prompts

  • Tea ceremony and group discussion

  • An additional mindfulness exercise

  • Crossing the “Threshold of Integration”

  • Closing

When we’re connected to the earth, the fear and mental buzz surrounding our professional lives quiets and we can actually hear our inner wisdom. With such insight, we can make choices that are actually aligned with us and support our well-being in and outside of work.

Location: Powell Butte Nature Park (16160 SE Powell Blvd, Portland, OR)

Note: This workshop will take place except in the case of severe weather, so attendees may want to bring some light rain gear or a sun hat.

If you need specific accommodations, please reach out and we will do as much as we can to make this an inclusive experience.
