I invite you to reflect on a moment when you immersed yourself in nature — perhaps swimming in a serene lake, hiking through lush trails, or simply basking in the beauty of a park, as you felt the grass beneath your feet and saw the trees towering above you.

Can you remember a time when nature had a positive impact on you? Maybe it brought you peace amidst the tranquility of the forest, or a surge of exhilaration as you skied down a mountainside.

Whatever your memories may be, one undeniable thing is that nature stirs something within us.

On this week’s episode of the Cracking Open podcast, Jobi Manson reminds us of the profound healing and transformative power of nature. Jobi is a visual artist and sculptor whose work explores the realms of water, light, sound, and stone. Delving into the ineffable dimensions beyond words, she traverses the realms of matter, time, and the ethereal space in between.

In 2015, she founded Sēfari, a platform dedicated to elemental experiences that fuse science, nature, and art, all in pursuit of psychosomatic evolution. Partnering with esteemed organizations like Auberge, The Sea Ranch Lodge, and In Goop Health, among others, Sēfari has become a beacon for those seeking to reconnect with nature and themselves.

In this conversation, Jobi shares profound insights, like the transformative power of swimming alongside whales and dolphins and exploring the profound connection between humans and the natural world. We talk about her journey through grief following the death of her mother,  her own near-death experience when she broke her neck while swimming in the ocean which temporarily rendered her paralyzed, and a particularly transformative encounter with a psychic that led her to Hawaii and helped her return home to herself.

Based in Pacific Palisades, California, Jobi now runs a private practice, offering individuals a pathway to rediscover their true essence through the transformative power of art and nature.

Love, Molly
