    The pandemic makes it clear that we discover creative and new ways to stay healthy, connected, and wise. Discover how every day and anywhere nature can guide, calm, inform and restore you.

    Empirical studies conducted over the past thirty years confirm that contact with natural world and meditation can lift your spirits, reduce anxiety, alleviate pain, increase brain function, and help cultivate a sense of belonging and compassion. Beautiful and compelling images support Marlow’s talk on the challenges and rewards of connecting with nature while living with the challenges of a global pandemic in a mass-technological culture. After the presentation you will experience the simple power of nature’s healing effects through a deep-guided meditation and nature activity.
