Videos: A Breath of Fresh Air with TAPS Outdoors - Sowing Seeds

Author: TAPS Media


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. In this episode, we are given opportunities to hone in on the ways we create our own comfort amidst discomfort. What are the ways you find calm amidst the chaos? How do you choose to be still?

Episode 4 - Sowing Seeds of Health

In this episode, we are sowing seeds for our health of today and the future, exploring the ways nature can help us improve both our mental and physical wellbeing. When we are moving, our grief can move. As April is the Month of the Military Child, we have brought in two of our Military Mentors as special guest hosts.

Episode 3 - Sowing Seeds of Community

Community is essential to a thriving life, and even more so when we are grieving. Here at TAPS we understand intimately well the need for a community to feel understood, supported and grounded. This week, we invite you to explore community in Nature, in TAPS and in Your Neighborhood.

Episode 2 - Sowing Seeds of Purpose

In this episode, we explore what it looks like to sow seeds of purpose in our lives after the loss of our loved ones. How many times have you asked yourself, what’s my purpose now? Where do I go from here? This episode is all about the ways we can explore, through nature, the possibilities of our journey ahead.
