Program Focuses on Connecting with Nature

September 5, 2019 – As human beings with the ability for self-reflection, we can learn much in our spiritual journey by reconnecting with nature or connecting at a deeper level. “Nature as Teacher, Mentor, and Model” encourages participants to spend time outside to explore what we can learn from nature. The program is offered from 7:00 p.m. Saturday, September 28, 2019 through 4:30 p.m. Sunday, September 29, 2019 at Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
