Women's Ski March Aspen - Aspen Real Life

Women’s Ski March Aspen

Waking up to yet another balmy day in January, one year later we again put on our ski boots and rode the gondola to start skiing and marching for the Women’s March 2018. Upturning rocks on our way down with an extremely thin base despite the heroic efforts of our Aspen Ski Company compounded the knowledge that this movement for change is no longer a choice but a necessity.

We have an incredible community here in our valley, a community who predominantly leads by example, with love and belief in equality and unity, and a huge part of what enables us to be happy and live this way is because there is not a day that goes by that we are not out one with nature, soaking in the spirit of our mountains, our forests and rivers, and our animals. The closer one gets to and with nature, the more one cares about the future of our planet. But anyone reading this probably knows that already. How do we get those who don’t to leave all their hates and worries behind and go into the forrests?

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
