Nature Heals the Healer

An Ecotherapy Group for Psychotherapists, Counselors, and Health Care Practitioners


To be added to the wait list, please Contact Rev. Connie.

As healers, we give so much to our clients and patients. It’s our passion and  brings meaning to our lives. But it also can be exhausting, overwhelming, and at times, lead to burnout.

It’s essential that we renew ourselves consistently. Nature and community are powerful ways to support that renewal: Nature Heals the Healer is a group that offers you a safe, supportive space, with others who “get it”, for your own nourishment, restoration, and inspiration.

Nature Heals the Healer is a monthly, in-person, 6-month journey through our  renewal as healers. Be filled by the healing power of deep nature connection and ecotherapy, feel like you belong, and reconnect to the Divine and your True  Self.

Each month, we immerse in the beauty and blessings of nature as a community, and also solitary, in silence. Together, we journey through 6 passages of our own healing:

  • Presence – Becoming fully Present in body, mind, heart, and spirit, and with the natural world
  • Embodiment – Consciously coming alive in our bodies, listening to them, and experiencing embodiment with and in nature
  • Compassion – Feeling care and understanding for ourselves, one another, and all beings
  • Connection – Connecting to each other in the circle, becoming part of the larger community of the natural world, and a Oneness with Spirit
  • Wisdom – Discovering our intuition, inner knowing, and depth of experience within us, our group, and surrounding us on the planet. This becomes wisdom as it is shared with one another
  • Love – Opening to the infinite expression of love through all of existence. As we receive that, we are filled, we heal, and we become a vessel of love for the planet.

We’ll journey through 3 different seasons, cultivating our relationship with the land and its Beings, and deepening our sense of belonging here on the Earth. It results in a feeling of belonging in community and deep connection to all life. This deep connection – to ourselves, each other, the Earth, and Spirit – are the pillars of the healing journey.


Each session will have:

  • group processes and/or small group/dyad explorations
  • deep nature connection practices
  • body movement or sensory awareness
  • quiet, solo time with the land

Open to all genders in the healing professions: psychotherapists, counselors, and health care practitioners. In person, on the San Francisco Bay Peninsula in Woodside, CA.

This is a closed, committed group (Maximum 12 members) – no drop-ins, so we journey deeply together in our growth, healing, and awakening. It is not a psychotherapy group, but an intimate group of peers facilitated for your support and renewal as a healer caring for so many others.

Because of this deep exploration together and with nature, you’ll experience more:
– Peace
– Ease in your body
– Renewed energy and aliveness
– Inspiration
– Authenticity, being your True Self
– Feeling of “coming home” within the group and the natural world
– Connection to the Divine
– Fresh ideas for your healing practice
– Ability to bring your best self to your family, friends, clients, and your life
