September 24, 2011. Page Lambert to present “Finding Your NATURAL Voice—Yes, You Are a Part of Nature!” an emersion workshop during CampExperience’s weekend retreat at Copper Mountain Resort.
CampExperience™ was created for successful women interested in building their lives, careers and connections. It provides busy women a reprieve from their everyday lives, and an opportunity to reconnect with themselves and their peers. Page’s two-hour workshop will explore our relationship with the natural world and how that influences our relationships with our bodies. “We enter this world as sensate beings,” writes Page, “as natural to nature as the wind in the trees. As babies, we sink our toes into mud and bury our hands into sand, delighted by the immersion. What happens to change this? How do we turn from wild creatures into mall queens and dilettantes? What happens when we turn away from what is wild within us? What happens to our daughters when they turn away from themselves?” Details: Finding Your Natural Voice with Page Lambert

July 5, 2010. ORION MAGAZINE: The Place Where You Live features Lambert’s essay on her home in Colorado, “One Hundred Years of Living Mountain Green, Twenty Minutes from Denver.”
Mt. Vernon. I’ve been rooted to these words for fifty years. The homes in this small mountain community, nestled in a mixed ponderosa pine forest, started as summer cabins. Narrow dirt roads wind in and out of the trees, and wildlife corridors still meander between the houses. Instead of a hundred homes sitting on 10-acre plots, leaving no open space, our homes are clustered on 200 acres, leaving nearly a 1000 acres of land as communal, natural habitat. From my neighbors’ decks, you can look east over Denver to the Great Plains, or west to the peaks of the Continental Divide. Read complete essay.
