Navigating Nature Naturally with Brenda Peterson


SKU: 3062. Category: . Tags: .

Program Description

Brenda Peterson finds her spirituality in the soulfulness, humility, and forgiveness of the natural world. With a voice as gentle as her heart, she shares her first mystical encounter with the spirit of a river, and points the way to a sacredness grounded in the natural world, the wisdom of women, and the love of family. She helps us connect with the inner guidance that can help us find enlightenment in our differences, and shares the message revealed by the offering of a mother dolphin. Her stories illustrate how we can navigate a spiritual path “by connection, by community, by wonder, and by a sense of enduring love of the human and the nonhuman spirit.” (Hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
