Nurturing Through Nature - Giving and Receiving
‘Tis the season for giving… and we give so much to others - thanks, gifts, our time and energy. But what do you give to yourself during this time? Are you open to receive? One of our favorite quotes is by John Muir: “In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” So we invite you to come take a walk with nature and receive her goodness. What gifts can she bring to you? How can we reconnect, not only with nature, but with ourselves? What happens when you take a moment of contemplation, away from the holiday rush to recenter your soul on what really matters? And how can we give some of our thanks, gifts, time and energy back to Mother Nature, who gives us so much? Join us as we take an afternoon of reflection and harmony in nature at Nolde Forest. During this Nurturing Through Nature program participants will get the opportunity to awaken their senses, connect with the forest, and discover the depth of our unique relationship with Mother Nature while reflecting on how we can best usher in this holiday season without losing sight of what really matters. This program will start with a short, guided meditation and intention setting, after which we will take a gentle walk through the forest to a lovely sit spot where we can stop for a silent meditation among the trees. Participants should be prepared for a mindful walk and quiet 20min meditation in the brisk winter air. *Bring a mat or blanket to use during the program for sitting and/or added warmth* **Registration is required for ALL participants. Spaces are limited.** Register by clicking the green button in the upper righthand corner. This hike is for Adults Only. If you are interested in a family program, please contact and we can try to host a family-friendly version if we garner enough interest. *This program will only be cancelled in case of severe inclement weather. Please check your email to receive any cancellation updates. We will be meeting at the McConnell Hall/Mansion parking lot (3025 New Holland Road, Reading, PA) Questions? Contact Rebekah at

    I will need accommodation in order to participate in this program. I recognize that if an ASL interpreter is needed, I will need to register 5 days or more in advance of the event so that the park can secure an interpreter for me.
    I will notify Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center if my plans change.
