Connect with Nature

25


25 per session - Virtual OK

Need a little nudge or guidance on spending more time outdoors, connecting with your surroundings and getting some Vitamin D? I can help you through encouraging playing, making art, or simply chatting about what it means to 'connect to nature'. I am a land artist, nature artist, nature lover, environmental activist, avid gardener, and hiker. I use herbs, crystals and other earth energy and knowledge to enrich my life and health.

And at the same time I also understand - through my own personal experience & challenges - some of the reasons and excuses for not spending time outside, not feeling fully connected to animals and ecosystems, and 'standing in my own way'.

Which is why I feel called to help other people to overcome the excuses and challenges through a session in which we do one of the following:
-- create land art
-- talk about ecology, ecosystems & ecological intelligence
-- chat about different ways to bring plants, animals and time outside into your daily life
-- create art that celebrates the complexity & beauty of our world
-- talk about how 'nature' is already part of your daily life - in the water we drink, the food we eat, the clothes we wear...

Training & Qualifications


My passion for ecology coupled with my creative talent is my biggest gift and my most important way to contribute to society, Mother Earth and everything in between. With my feet rooting me to the Earth, my blood flowing as water through my veins, the wind as my breath and the fire of my creativity, I use my impulse to create to share my experiences and perspectives in ways that enrich, inform and inspire. Creating art that honour the sacred in life, in highlighting the beauty & complexity of nature & life while minimizing my ecological footprint. Exploring ways of connecting more deeply to our true nature within the web of life – as a fellow species to others, reliant on the cycles of the Earth, and responsible for conserving biodiversity and assisting the inherent regeneration of our ecosystems.

About Janet Botes

In a professional capacity I am an artist, graphic designer, illustrator and workshop facilitator, and offer creative coaching. I am also a land artist - creating ephemeral art in the landscape, and s...ite-specific installations in public spaces. Some of these extend into the realm of my personal and spiritual life as prayers, rituals and ceremonies for Earth Healing, animals, Spirit and connection. I love hiking, camping, gardening, plant-based nutrition, spiritual development, long walks on the beach, forest bathing, swimming, and working on creative collaborations. I enjoy connecting with like-minded people and helping other people to uncover and develop their own inherent creative talents. I'm an explorer, a Fire-Mountain creator type (https://sacredbusiness.com.au/not-creators-made-equal) and aim to help make the world a better place for all beings. show more
