YOUR NATURE QUEST was founded by Dr.Sharon Goldblum to address the growing disconnect between society and our origins in Nature. Sharon found that most individuals in our harried society have become disconnected from themselves and Nature. Nature is often seen as an object to conquer rather than our very sustenance and home. There are few places where people are helped to connect with nature in quiet and harmony. As a psychotherapist, she discovered that when in nature, her clients experienced decreased feelings of emptiness, depression and anxiety. Her clients instead discovered inner peace, clarity and even spirituality.
YOUR NATURE QUEST is a transformative weekend retreat held in nature to address this disconnect. Sharon combines various spiritual paths and techniques in her retreats. People can have profound experiences during a weekend that lead to a feeling of interconnectedness with themselves, others, and nature. Most leave with a commitment to bring this experience into their life and that of their families. Retreats are conducted alone, in a group, or with a client’s family.
