When the stressors of life build, I’m often reminded by colleagues and loved ones that getting out into nature is good for health. What is less-often flagged is the value of nature to nurturing our soul. In the natural world, there is wisdom to be gained everywhere: lessons on the power of resilience, the equal value of both beginnings and endings, the glory in constant change and movement. Out in nature, we are able to seek our souls: the eternal I. 

How do you mindfully walk out into the world? When was the last time you listened to the Universe speak to you? Have you found the eternal I, and what does that mean to you? The old wisdom tells us that in reuniting with the natural world, we reconnect with our own souls. “Go out, my child, go out and seek/Your soul.”
