WOULD you love to FEEL CALM, CONFIDENT, & Connected to Spirit?

EVEN AS THE WORLD GOES THROUGH CRAZY UPS AND DOWNS?

Wouldn’t it be incredible to TUNE INTO wisdom and wonder to guide your day, starting from where you are?

Wouldn’t you love to invite more ease and presence into your daily life?

 

Here’s a possibility…

 

What if you were able to move forward with peace, calm-fidence (see what I did there 😊), and a grounded sense of yourself. 

What if the next time your kids, or your crazy work situation was driving you bonkers, you took a 10 minute breather outside. You stand on your back patio- porch-place and look out. You notice a new series of mushroom has formed on your favorite tree. (A mushroom series is called a flush).

You ponder how that mushroom takes dead wood and makes something new and beautiful.

You start wondering how you could be like a mushroom and take the “dead wood” of your situation and recreate those elements into something new.

Your hands,

your heart,

your wisdom.

You are capable. You know how to move forward- and you’ve got your backyard mushroom quietly cheering you on.

Suddenly you’re not annoyed by the work/home situation in front of you, but you’re inspired by how you’re going to handle it in a new way!

 

What if you explored a new way of listening, immersing, and seeing the world?

What if you got quiet and sat in a safe, beautiful space to hear what your heart, your soul wants to speak to you?

 

In a society that says “Put yourself Last,”

self-love and self-acceptance are almost revolutionary.

Join the 3 week Nourish your Soul with Nature Experience.

Use this experience to slow down, get quiet, and hear what messages, wisdom, and magic the natural world has to share with you. 

This last year has been an intense time. Full of uncertainties and unexpected turn-of-events.

Not to mention whatever was actually happening in your life before.

This journey with your soul and the elements of nature will get you rooted in a stable place.

Nature is a stable foundation, time after time.

Last April, early into quarantine, the kids were crying, the internet people were fighting, and I was debating getting pizza for the 3rd time that week!

I took both kids outside to play, while I lay down on my porch. I looked up. The sky was pulsing bright blue. Sunlight bounced on the fluttering leaves.

As I lay there, I felt calm and peace start to settle in. I looked at the oak and sweet gum trees in my yard. A slight breeze rustled the leaves.

“These trees have sustained and survived through storms,” I thought. You can sustain too.

 

I have spent many years tuning into the messages from the natural world and applying them to my life, so that I can move forward with peace and confidence and calm (Calm-fidence), even during the most unknown times in my life.

Reading the signs of nature is an ancient human practice, but one which we have fallen away from in years past. 

You can tune back into the wonderous wisdom of the world- of creation itself- right outside your doorway. You can dive deeper into your spiritual practice by sitting and connecting to the nature in your space.

Through this experience you will have the opportunity through prompts and experiential challenges to learn how to trust yourself, listen to your needs, and start believing in yourself.

You’ll be invited to try new things- some which are fairly comfortable to your comfort zone, some which aren’t your zone of genius. You will decide which ones you do and which you don’t. The power lies with you.

I ask if you would be willing to focus on and spend time on the KNOWNS instead of the unknowns. The things that you CAN count on day after day.

The Nourish Experience will excited & inspire you.

Let’s light a little fire in you and get you in action!

3 Themes of the Nourish Experience.

You chose as you goes through it, how in-depth to go with each theme. Each week will have a new theme.

1. Roots in the Ground. 

Get rooted, get used to slowing down and being present. Practice the art of noticing. Become acclimated in your space.  

2. Leaf. 

Leaves feed plants and leaves feed us (yeah, green salads, smoothies, and pass the pesto!). You will learn about strength and power from leaves.

3. Flower/fruit. 

Flowers & fruits are beauty & self-expression. You delve into flowers to explore beauty, gratitude, and happiness.

A Selection of handouts from Nourish Your Soul

Let nature be your teacher, your spiritual mentor. 

Imagine in 3 weeks feeling confident & energized.

Walking in the world as you want to be.

The steadiness, resilience, beauty, and wonder of nature sustains you. You are inspired and feeling more in tune with the world and your own intuition. 

Three weeks from now, you could be feeling a sense of energy, confidence, and inspiration you’ve been yearning for.

You wake up, grab your tea and pop out to your garden before the rest of your house wakes up.

You take in the groundedness and calm of nature into yourself.

Nature has got this- both the big and small problems of life. You’ve got this. Everyday you take time outside that’s just for you and your heart and soul. 

In this program, you will take a regular, perhaps daily, practice of being present in the outside and observing nature. You will be invited to doodle nature shapes, write words about how the time makes you feel and list all the leaf shapes you see. You will identify the patterns that you notice in your nature space and in yourself.

You can feel this way:

  • New trust in yourself.
  • Groundedness.
  • Greater Appreciation for yourself, your life, and nature.
  • New Way of connecting to Spirit, God, the Divine.
  • Nurtured and nourished deeply by the place where you are, right now.

Testimonials

“As I took time to reflect on the question of the day or just sitting and observing nature there was much revealed in the way Mother Nature runs her household. Thank you, Rachel for holding this space so I could appreciate these gifts.”

—Michelle M.

Easy to understand, fun, not intimidating, and totally inspiring. Not to mention, Rachel is knowledgeable, real, and fun.” — Nicole D

“Rachel is probably the calmest, most kind individual I know. She helped me to dig deep within myself and ask some of the harder questions… which lead to the answers I needed all along. She didn’t answer these things for me, but walked with me on a journey within myself to discover the tools I didn’t know I had and a purpose that had been hidden by my own “self” issues.” — Sarah Vandevelde

 

“I would highly recommend Rachel, she is exceptional!” — Jaime Fleres

Join the 3 week experience and notice your surroundings.

What do you notice about the dandelion?

The robin?

You’ll sit and be present in your space, noticing all the beauty and life around you.

FAQ

What if I don’t have an outdoor space? 
You are welcome to join. As long as you have a place where you can see nature enough to engage with it and observe nature, you can participate. This includes houseplants, a balcony, or a front stoop.

 

Are you going to teach me how to grow veggies, herbs, or flowers? 
That’s not the focus of this experience. We will have a live call every week and I will answer any growing/cultivation questions that you have, however I won’t be sharing in-depth growing guidance for this course. I have a free gardening class that I am happy to share with you to get you started and I offer more in-depth instruction on how to have an organic gardening in other settings. 

Do I have to share or be on any the live calls?

You are encouraged to share and connect with Rachel, either via email or the Marco Polo, but it is not mandatory. For many people, sharing their experiences and engaging with others is a part of the reflection and transformation process. I honor you knowing what you need right now and doing that.

Let’s light a little fire in you and get you in action!

Hello, I’m Rachel Strivelli. 

I’m a Creative, organic gardener & spiritual coach. I believe that when we see the beauty and wisdom in the natural world, it awakens more beauty and wisdom within each of us. Creatrix Rachel Strivelli.png

 

Whether it’s in the garden, on a trail, or on a coaching call, you can trust that I help you to take the next step forward towards your desires. Weekly I share tips & videos on my YouTube channel and in my email newsletter to plant seeds within your heart.

 

 

What if you took 3 weeks to ground and get present in your space?

Can you imagine what would change and shift in your life?

What Could you Gain by Giving yourself Permission to Explore?

could you let yourself explore a new way of listening and seeing the natural world around you? and finding calm & quiet for 3 weeks?

 

Covid and everything else has shaken up life some, but it hasn’t given you a new window in what you deeply want for you and for your life.

I want you to answer the call. I want you to turn this this nature immersion-experience into the beginning of you showing up for yourself. Bring you your confidence and your life’s vision to the forefront like you never have before.

Let the plants, weather, and earth nourish your heart and your soul.

As with anything in life, you can show up as much or as little as you like. AND its important to sign up if you want something in your life to change, because change is not happening by doing what you’ve always done.

Maybe its time to stop reading inspiring posts/articles/stuff and actually start implementing something that makes you believe in yourself and trust your voice again.

Through this experience you will have the opportunity through daily prompts and experiential challenges to learn how to trust yourself, listen to your needs, and start believing in yourself.

You’ll be invited to try new things- some which are fairly comfortable to your comfort zone, some which aren’t your zone of genius. You will decide which ones you do and which you don’t. The power lies with you.

I ask if you would be willing to focus on and spend time on the KNOWNS instead of the unknowns. The things that you CAN count on day after day.

The challenge will excited & inspire you.
