Boulder Community Health
Would you like to contribute content for an online nature-based group therapy program at Boulder Community Health?
We’re asking students/faculty/practitioners in the community to make short videos (10-30 minutes). Contributors can choose any ritual/practice that works for them, including walking/sitting meditation, prayer, visualization, walking outdoors, mindfully watching sunrise/sunset, listening to nature sounds, making art, reciting poetry, you name it.
The script for the videos follows a simple format:
- What is one thing you do every day (or nearly every day) to take care of your mental health? This could be a new ritual/practice you adopted during the pandemic, or something you’ve done for a long time. (1-2 minutes)
- Describe the circumstances that led you to adopt this practice? How did you discover it? Why did you feel it was necessary/important for your life? (2-5 minutes)
- If possible, please guide viewers/participants through the ritual/practice as you do it every day so they can learn the practice too. (5-20 minutes)
- If nature is a meaningful part of your practice or your mental well-being, please describe briefly why nature is important to you/your practice and how you discovered the healing power of nature. (2-5 minutes)
These don’t need to be elaborate videos by any means. People can record them in their homes, outdoors or in the studio/office space where they work. We can offer a small stipend for anyone who is willing to help with a video. And we can acknowledge their contribution on our website and in published materials.
Ideally, we’d like to receive people’s videos by May 14. However, including these contributions from practitioners in the community is very important to the PHP’s mission, so we will accept them at any time if that timeline doesn’t work.
