Your sense of place is as unique as you are.
In our busy, modern day world, having a sense of place can be a forgotten art. It's a way of looking at the past, present and future that can help you feel more rooted, no matter where you are. It's a lens on life that can help you make sense of the world, no matter how crazy it seems.

From that sense of connection comes a creative understanding of what matters, and a desire to care for places today, and for the future. It might be a remembering of the  aliveness, creativity and wholeness that deeply knowing a place can bring.

Your "place" could be from the past or present. It might be a wilderness, or a backyard, or a city street. It might be a lens you use to view your surroundings as you journey through life.

But finding your sense of place, is like finding yourself. No matter where you are.

And that internal knowing, of our sense of place and belonging, is something that is deeply needed in our world today.
