Cathy Carter—an intuitive landscape designer and the founder of Creating Sacred Places, based in Bedford, New York, and Malibu, California—will teach two consecutive eight-week sessions of her workshop Kinship with Nature, beginning in June and continuing through November. The two-hour workshops will be held once a week, with the second eight-week session building upon the first.
The workshops will be held at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, in Westchester, and Elizabeth Park, in West Hartford, Connecticut. Their focus is reducing stress on the environment by reconnecting and working with the intelligence in nature.
“Folks can learn to have a deeper connection to their own garden and also with the natural environment around them,” Carter says. “It’s a truly remarkable journey to feel the love and intelligence in nature and to be able to communicate with all living things.”
Raised in a Malibu canyon by a landscape architect/horticulturist father and an artist mother, Carter spent her youth exploring nature.
“I gained an appreciation of the spiritual world from my father, who was an ardent follower of Krishnamurti—and also of course, my great love of gardening and landscaping—and an artistic creativity from my mother, whose artwork used natural elements such as her sand castings, born out of the beach itself,” she says.
In addition to providing landscape design services and teaching workshops, Carter leads full moon ceremonies, solstice and equinox celebrations, land-art adventures, fairy garden workshops and floral design classes.
