“The earth is crammed with heaven.. Every common bush afire with God; but only he who sees takes off his shoes.”
Elizabeth B. Browning
“Nature is the art of God”
Back to basics with God- Adventure in creation
Are you longing to plug out for a weekend? Going back to basic into nature without the distractions of modern day life?
Conversations while staring in the flames, experiencing and learning nature skills, like what plants (not) to eat and lighting a fire. You will have time just to sit to enjoy the wind rustling through the leaves and learn about God and yourself.
Jesus often retreated into the wilderness to pray, both Moses and David had nature as their schooling ground to prepare them for their task ahead.
…From massive mountain ranges to the tiniest funny looking bug..
“The heavens declare the glory of God,
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
David in Psalm 19
Immerse yourself in nature for a full weekend. Look at creation afresh and connect with God.
Connect with God in & through nature
Acquire new skills and knowledge
Connect with others around the fire
Reset, reflect & admire creation
Sleep in the woods and wake with birdsong
Invest in yourself and get inspired while learning basic skills of living in nature (also called bushcraft).
Some parts of the weekend:
- Fire lighting and using fire
- Working (safely) with a knife
- Nature experience and nature awareness
- Setting up a tarp shelter and the knots that come in handy for this
- Edible and usable plants and trees
- Enjoy healthy ‘slow cooked’ meals together.
- Your own mini-retreat in nature.
