Naturally Creative – Writing in Partnership with Nature

Are you ready to feel more connected with nature and more creative?

Would you like to write with more ease and joy?

This class will explore how connecting with nature inspires our writing, and how writing can lead us into a deep and nourishing connection with nature.

Together we’ll experience easy and enjoyable ways to immerse in nature, get our pens moving, and tap into natural creativity. Through a series of gentle nature awareness and writing practices, we will open to receive inspiration from tall redwoods, lush ferns, and the flowing creek. We’ll discover how writing not just about but with the natural world frees up our creativity and takes us to wonderful and surprising places. Sharing writing will be invited but not required. Expect to leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, with some new writing that you love and tools to help you draw on nature for inspiration and support wherever you are.

This is a gentle, experiential program—not a vigorous hike. We will walk about half a mile and spend more time sitting than walking.

Join us to discover a direct and scenic path to natural creativity!
