Thomas Berry Mantras for Fostering Intimacy with the Natural World
Maureen offers guidance into a simple outdoor contemplative practice using mantras inspired by the teachings of Thomas Berry (monk, author, cultural historian, geologian). Imagine that you stop to really notice and receive the shape, pattern and texture of the tiniest part of the earth. You gratefully accept its tenderness. “I receive from you beauty, wonder and intimacy, and I give back to you my loving attention.” A small booklet of mantras will be provided as you walk and stop for silent pauses among the trees, plants, and along the shore. Time will be given at the end to listen to each other’s experiences.
