Nature Oneness Weekend approaches

Learn to live in harmony with nature during a Nature Oneness Weekend, which runs Friday to Sundayat the Center for Spiritual Living Tri-Cities, 210 E. Third Ave., Kennewick.

Awakening Humanity To Oneness With All Nature is a nonprofit, nondenominational spiritual sanctuary traveling throughout the nation.

The weekend is divided into a series of sessions. The suggested offering is $15 to $20 per session with proceeds going to the Center for Spiritual Living.

From 7-9 p.m. Friday, there will be a focus on gratitude with an instruction period on how to create intentions for a positive outcome followed by a "Oneness Blessing."

On Saturday, there will be four sessions:

-- Pet Blessings Behavior & Health as Oneness is from 10 a.m. to noon and pets, or photos of pets, are welcome as the group takes a metaphysical look at how a pet's behavior and health mirrors what's going on in our own lives.

-- Nature as Teacher and Guide is from 1 to 3 p.m. with the group meditating to discover its personal nature totems.

-- World Religions and Nature's Oneness is from 3:15 to 5 p.m. with the group honoring its oneness with all creation through prayer and meditations.

-- Animal Spirit Drumming is from 7 to 9 p.m. with the group drumming, chanting and dancing around a sacred hoop.

The weekend winds up with a 1-3 p.m. session on Sunday on Living the Joy with participants having an opportunity to work with the tools to allow them to balance all areas of their lives.

Children are welcome at all the sessions.
