Videos: A Breath of Fresh Air with TAPS Outdoors - Sowing Seeds
Presenter: Rachel Hunsell
Season 2 theme: Sowing Seeds
This theme runs from March 3, 2021 to May 26, 2021.
As we transition from winter into spring, we welcome warmer days and many more opportunities to step outdoors. At TAPS, we know that, even when the sun is shining outdoors, our grief can still make days feel cold and overcast. In this season of Sowing Seeds, we will utilize the skills we developed over winter to plant seeds of hope for the flourishing summer ahead. Spring is the season of new beginnings, and we look forward to preparing the ground, planting seeds and growing with you in the journey to blooms.

Episode 5 - Sowing Seeds of Stillness
Stillness can be our companion. A friend, waiting for you to simply take notice. Stillness is not passive as it opens us up to gifts of gratitude and connection.
