When was the last time you took time to retreat from ‘the world’? Time to slow down and notice how you feel and what you’re thinking? To really allow your grief, or overwhelm, or glimpses of happiness?
Instead, how often do you dash from one thing to the other? And find people, places, and things crashing down on you?

Time to slow down and connect
Yes, the planet’s moving at warp speed.
But what I know is…when I show up from a place of centeredness, I’m connected to the power within me – my Wellbeing.
So, you might ask, “How do I do this if I’m amid grief, longing, and anxiety?”
One process I use with clients in Synergy sessions is to connect through nature.
