“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees”

Henry David Thoreau

Explore the Highlands and open a gateway to spiritual reflection and guidance

The landscape of North West Scotland is wild, beautiful, and awe-inspiring. It offers wonderful opportunities to explore spirituality IN nature, whether through meditation, contemplation, prayer, pilgrimage or the arts.  Open your senses to a deeper connection with the landscape and the elements, whether you have time for a short walk or a nature pilgrimage.

Nature Pilgrimage & Contemplative Walks

A contemplative walk is an invitation to slow down, engage our senses & find wisdom which connects us to faith & spirituality. Walking itself, absorbed in the landscape, is the focus  as we journey through sacred nature, looking for meaning. 

Prayer Walks

Prayer walking is just that, praying whilst you walk through the wonderful nature of the Highlands. Respecting your own faith and belief, I will hold space for your individual prayer needs or around selected themes like gratitude, guidance or health, or wider themes like climate change and peace.  

Contemplation in Nature & Lectio Terrestris

‘Lectio terrestris’ describes the highly sensory practice of  ‘reading’ the landscape to be moved, challenged and inspired in a spiritual way. Built around mindful observation of your surroundings, it involves all the senses and takes what many describe as feeling ‘awe’ to a new level.  

Engaging with Sacred & Spiritual Texts in Nature

Inspired by the Christian practice of Lectio Divina – reading, meditating, praying and contemplating scripture – be guided in taking texts from the world’s religions as well as more general spiritual writers out into the inspirational Highland landscape to read & reflect on.

Spiritual Land Art

There is something wonderfully absorbing about combining landart and spiritual immersion and reflection. Whether it’s creating nature mandalas on the beach, or finding nature’s own art which inspires and nourishes the soul. Work with what the Highland landscape offers in abundance. 

Contemplative Photography

Learn new ways of ‘seeing clearly’ & receiving’ rather than ‘taking’ images. During guided sessions in the evocative Highland landscape you will explore a new approach to photography, drawing on Buddhist &  Christian contemplative practice. All skill levels and users of smartphones and tablets welcome.
