Meg Toben co-created The Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain as a sanctuary for nature connection, renewal, and healing the human-Earth relationship. Meg has twenty years of experience as an environmental educator, twelve as a mother, and ten as an executive director, during which time she has learned useful techniques for cultivating balance while keeping a holistic level of awareness. Meg's love for Earth, Art, Play, Ritual, and Humanity inspire her to offer nurturing space of deep creative renewal to all who are working to heal our world.
Audiences I work with
These days, I find myself mostly working with young adults in the "Odyssey Years" (ages 18-28.) However, I'm often invited to speak with churches and in college classes.
Experience facilitating other events & workshops
What year did you begin facilitating the Work That Reconnects?
The Eco-Institute at Pickards Mountain hosts many teachers of various aspects of The Great Turning. As one of the many who have the honor of creating and facilitating programs for children and adults, The Work That Reconnects establishes the basis for each and every one of my programs. Here are some examples of the titles of programs, camps, workshops, and retreats I have led: "Sisters of the Forest" Summer Camp, "Spiritual Ecology" Study Group, "Odyssey Fellowship" for Young Adults, "Soul Tending" Support Group, "Despair & Empowerment" at The Death Faire (a local annual event), "Art in Nature" Retreat for Therapists, "Environmental Ethics" for Local AP High School Students, and "The Healing of Our World" Retreat.
