In this episode, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Erin Teigen.
Erin is a clinical social worker, who offers nature-based and animal-assisted therapy and coaching at her private practice, Elevation Ecotherapy. The practice is based on her holistic farm, Heartwood Meadows, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the United States. She finds meaning in offering a well-being haven for individuals and families to cultivate sustainable resilience and empower holistic growth through experiential connections within nature.
"Nature can be incredibly helpful for releasing that judgement and softening your gaze on imperfections. There are many times in our lives when we can feel that there are failures and a demand to be perfect. When we're out in nature with the trees, flowers, and birds, they're not looking at us and judging our appearance, our success at our jobs, or our ability to stay in a marriage. They're just seeing if we treat their safe space with respect."
The desire to soften your gaze on your own imperfections is your invitation to press play on this episode.
Insight delivered with deep care is always close at hand in conversation with Erin.
It's my pleasure to share her with you.
