Join animal chaplain Sarah Bowen and a diverse range of “otherkind” for a journey through the more-than-human world. We’ll stretch the practices of lectio divina (sacred reading), visio divina (sacred seeing), and audio divina (sacred listening) to increase our compassion, kindness, and connection to the 8.7 million species we share the planet with.
Turn up your volume, settle into a comfortable position, and connect with the diverse world we live in. We suggest having a journal near-by for after-practice reflection.
