Deepening Your Connection with Nature: Creating Your Own Journal of a Sacred Encounter

I'd love to have you join me for this new online course that has grown out of my recently published book, Walking the Grove: Journal of a Sacred Encounter.

The course starts on January 8th and runs through February 5, 2020.

In this course you will explore various methods for experiencing nature as a vehicle for a relationship with the Sacred. You'll create a journal for recording the experiences you have and the revelations and messages you receive. You'll be guided in setting up a personal routine for your appointments with nature. You'll explore the plants and animals and weather in the area you select.

The course will be offered via a secret Facebook group. Assignments will be posted there, and you will also be able to post your questions and your responses to the assignments, and any of the revelations you receive. Interaction with the group is encouraged.

You are also welcome to email me throughout the duration of the course if there are experiences that you prefer not to share in the group. Typically I'm able to respond within 24 hours of receiving your email.

You will work through the course materials at your own pace, and there are no specific requirements for you to be online at any particular time.

As a special bonus, I'm offering an optional 45-minute telephone consultation if you'd like to discuss how you might go even more deeply in your spiritual journey with nature as your guide.

Register early because space is limited. To foster an intimate setting, and to make sure that I can respond fully to everyone individually, this course will be limited to a small group. Scroll down to find the registration links.

If you do not yet have Walking the Grove: Journal of a Sacred Encounter, a copy will be mailed to you.

“Are you willing to spend a month with God?” Author Gail Condrick awoke one morning to this stark question reverberating in her mind.

Eventually, she would leave her sophisticated urban life in the Washington, D.C. area and return to the place she had always loved—her spiritual home: the Gulf coast of Florida. It was there that she began to answer the call.

In a series of journal entries, Gail shares her adventures and relates her insights, the gifts of her encounters with the local flora and fauna, the weather, as well as other humans on her daily walks through the mangrove forest near her home. With a raw honesty that is often laced with humor, this is a story of how the author came face to face with a deep spiritual yearning that had been beckoning her for years.

This book is an invitation—from Spirit, from nature—enticing you to answer the call that has been beseeching you, whatever that may be. If you will but be still and listen, nature will offer itself up to you, revealing its mysteries and marvels, giving you spiritual solace and guidance for whatever journey you have embarked upon.

Gail's words will cheer you on as you take your own first step into the wilds of your own Sacred Grove, wherever that may be.
