They may cover topics such as gardening, reading, reflecting and journaling, games, music, conversation (at home and with the outside world), stress and anxiety reduction, coping with boredom,introducing ritual and symbol … depending on the responses received.

"Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm" - Publilius Syrus (1st century BC)
This has a nice First Nations indigenous ring to it: “Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of ecology because he granted animals, elements, and the earth subjectivity, respect, and mutuality. In his Canticle of the Creatures, Francis the mystic describes a participatory universe in which God loves and cares for us through Brother Sun, Sister Moon, Brothers Wind and Air, Sister Water, Brother Fire, and through our sister, Mother Earth”. (Rohr, R. 2020)
