“Grieving and Healing in the Outdoors of Oregon” is a one-hour presentation by outdoor and travel writer, photographer, and author Adam Sawyer. Through a series of photos and essays, Sawyer details how time spent in the outdoors of Oregon has aided in his recovery from not just addiction, but the devastating loss of his life partner and home in early 2022. Sharing personal insights and perspectives from time spent in places ranging from urban parks to the state’s grandest natural cathedrals, Sawyer’s hope is to help reveal the redemptive and healing powers of Mother Nature. As well as how we all benefit greatly from time spent outside, wherever, and in whatever capacity we choose.
