“Pathfinders and Aperture of Hope collaborate by providing children and adults with creative and meaningful ways to express their grief in the outdoors. Cath takes them into the mountains or valley with either a pinhole and/or digital camera and they begin to see nature in a new way. In this process what we have witnessed is their ability to not only connect to nature but also connect to their grief, deep inner feelings and to express it without words, but rather in the way nature shows itself to them. Grief, especially in a child can be tough to unravel and find an avenue of expression, so this creative way to find meaning in our beautiful valley is especially important. In a world of cell phones and video games, getting someone who is hurting and locked up to find a new way to appreciate where we live and to allow this environment to help unravel some of their inner feelings is a true gift”
