I have been heart set on doing a type of family-oriented vision quest for and with Nolan to usher him into this next phase of life and manhood (13) and his own deeper sense of self, individuality and identity (spirituality ~ a sense of self as it relates to something more or bigger, to those around us etc.).
There are few people leading or facilitating these types of experiences in the U.S. that are both deeply traditional with maybe a modern twist, so, I’m finding myself crafting something for him with someone I did find who can assist and we are currently piecing it together.
I find this an interesting note: many of us are more separate(d) from nature than we were in the past or in our childhoods and I want Nolan to be more connected to it. It’s a thought that comes quite often and it’s why on most all trips, we make sure to plan a guided or non-guided hike or longer trek in nature, no matter where we are.
Because — because — because — when we are closer to nature, we are genuinely closer to ourselves.
I’ve taken to diving deeper into the principles of ecopsychology lately *and* to loving up this boy in new ways because he’s new…he’s a new, interesting person today in his teenage and eighth-grade awesomeness (and I love that)!
What is changing for you right now and how can you accept it and love it even more?
