Healing in Nature
Meet our newest counselor, Jess Cherry. He holds a master’s degree from Naropa University in Transpersonal Ecopsychology and a bachelor’s degree from Lesley University in Holistic Psychology with a specialization in Expressive Arts Therapy. He is a prospective student at Pacifica Graduate Institute for a doctorate in Depth Psychology, Jungian and Archetypal Studies. Through his studies, he has discovered that the earth is patterned in wholeness and in choosing to participate with the “ground of being”, one can source immense resiliency and understanding. With this in mind, Jess facilitates earth-based connection with all those he works with. He has a specific intention to do grief work in relation to the rapidly changing climate.
Jess grows organic vegetables and seed in the North Quabbin region of Massachusetts with his partner and child. There he integrates his mindfulness practice with various healing modalities including dreamwork, mindful hiking, process gardening, expressive arts, and other earth-based practices.
At Wellness Hub, Jess will be offering mindful hiking in classes and for individuals and families in partnership with North County Land Trust, using the property on Underwood Drive in Hubbardston (next to #14). Meet at the street entrance up to 10 minutes before class. Limit 12.
All are welcome.
Great family activity! Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Hikes happen regardless of the weather so dress accordingly.
