Have you ever sensed something sacred about your time in nature? Are you curious about the connections between nature and spirituality? We invite you to join us for a contemplative practice designed to inspire conversation between humans and the natural world led by Karolyn Kinane, Ph.D., and Anthony DeMauro, Ph.D., co-founders of Hearth Cville, a place for earth and soul connection.

During this special event, participants will be invited on a guided “wandering” through the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont, with the option to share and discuss personal experiences with others in attendance.

  • Notebook and pen or pencil
  • Sturdy, waterproof shoes
