A walk to remember…

Hello everyone. If we haven’t met yet, my name is Jordan Leden. I have been invited to participate in the spirit of the land class as a community member, and last nights nature walk was a brilliant and beautiful experience. I was part of a discussion the other night surrounding some of the questions asked in the class. What is the connection between spirit and land? When asked this, I put myself in a scenario where a section of unbroken prairie by the farm where I grew up, would be turned into farm land. As I imagined this situation, I felt heart break. The natural systems associated with ones upbringing, and home, draws a strong connectedness to the fullness of who we are as individuals. I am a prairie person. I feel such profound and magnificent peace, just by being in the wild prairie. The healing power that the land has on us, truly, is overwhelmingly beautiful. Thank you all for this experience. I look forward to the future of the spirit of the land class.
