Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Story Walking Radio Hour

The simple act of stepping outside to engage one’s senses with the outer world opens the mind to possibility. Story walking is a creative process that leads to magical, outside-of-the-box thinking. It may involve noticing little clues while out walking and considering how such clues can help answer a pressing question, or it may involve searching the natural world for problem solving inspiration.

Story Walking Radio Hour is also a monthly environmental radio talk show and podcast series, hosted by Wendy Nadherny Fachon, a Rhode Island environmental educator. Each episode begins with a story walking adventure that sets the stage for a special guest whose life and work have been inspired by nature. The most recent podcast, titled “Empowering Children to Care for the Planet,” features the nature-inspired children’s book, The Paper Doll Kids, and co-author Deborah Beauvais, founder of the Kids 4 Love Project.

Beauvais’ story is about children from around the world coming up with creative solutions to help save planet Earth and all its inhabitants. It is a wonderful book for parents to read aloud and discuss with their kids, and it supports the story walking mission, which is to inspire people of all ages to participate in co-creating a greener, healthier, more vibrant economy.

The Story Walking Radio Hour airs every Monday at 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on the Dreamvisions 7 Radio Network, and the podcasts are available for free on the Story Walking archives. For more information, visit
