Jennifer Schelter finds mystic spaces in the Morris Arboretum canopy for participants to be together and alone with sensations in the garden. She creates a meditative state with her own calm demeanor, poetry readings, and quiet invitation to contemplate relationships with the natural world. She took the group to:
Places where they touched not knowns.
Discovered hidden truths.
Learned about streams inside themselves.
Images, memories, words.Waters wet enough to extinguish thirst.
