We live in a time of extraordinary tumult. There are many forces at play in every moment that can easily derail our quest to be strong and faithful to what is most important. Modern life can strip us of our inherent need for solace with the earth.
At Dream Haven of Vermont, it is our intention and deepest hope that all of our guests experience the healing balm of Nature, restoring balance and an intact sense of self.
Simply being in Nature is an invitation to return to the primal self - the home or the heart of hearts where our soul lives and thrives. Just as trauma has created a profound separation from our soul for so many of us, so too has modern life disrupted or severed our connection with primal instinct. Stepping into Nature and fully accepting where we are – in ease, discomfort, bliss or fear – is an opportunity to explore new edges and open to the invitation of returning to the essence of being human.
When I feel the ground firmly beneath my feet, I know who I am.
"We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process, heal our own – to embrace the whole creation in all its diversity, beauty and wonder."
When out of touch with Nature, the soul is constantly seeking completion.
