Crux: Self-Esteem and Connection to Nature
“Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” -John Muir
Last week in Crux, group members spent time looking at how spending time in nature can affect their perception of themselves. Group members hiked, painted, waded in the (still chilly!) water, and reflected on how their feelings are affected by both the places and people around them. Through time together in the outdoors, they were able to acknowledge the strength and creativity that emerges while spending time outside.
