What is Cathedral Grove?

Cathedral Grove is a site dedicated to spreading positivity, growing kindness, and cultivating better ways of looking after our own well-being, as well as that of this unique planet we share.

I’m Megan, lead creative of this personal passion project started in April 2018. Welcome – grab a cuppa and pull up a comfy seat! Join me and Cathedral Grove’s friendly, supportive community as together we plant the seeds of a greener, fairer, kinder future for everyone.

Why ‘Cathedral Grove’?

Somewhere between reading John Muir’s My First Summer in the Sierra and experiencing California’s coastal redwoods for myself, the idea for this site first sprouted. Like its namesake, this online space is a place for people with a love of nature and a desire to nurture the well-being of planet, community, and self.

When are New Posts Published?

More regular features such as Monday Mindfulness and Positive News Stories From This Week are published on Mondays and Sundays, respectively.

Other offerings have a more variable publication schedule, dependant mainly on the nature of my work timetable and other obligations during any given week! I promise never to spam you with half-baked content, preferring to share with you all a handful of quality posts each week which I hope will leave you feeling uplifted and inspired.

About Me

Hello! I’m Megan. Originally from the Texas Hill Country, I now live in the hills of West Yorkshire, England with my partner Nick. At various points in life I’ve worked in public and university libraries, written for online art publications like Beautiful/Decay and Featureshoot, had my travel narratives published by the likes of Intrepid Times, done a bit of archaeology in Peru, and been an adventurous activities instructor working primarily with kids and young adults. When I’m not working, I enjoy being out and about in nature, doing a bit of volunteer ranger work at my favorite local National Trust site, playing games on my PS4 or Nintendo Switch, and sharing my musings and meanderings here on Cathedral Grove.

  1. I’m loving this piece of heaven on the internet so far. Can’t wait to follow upcoming posts. The reconnection with nature is so needed right now – a walk into the woods, and stress is reduced at least by half. How’s life in England? I just left it for a while but I had a chance to visit Yorkshire area and it’s a lovely place to be in nature 🤗

    • Thank you, Vanessa! That is so very kind and much appreciated. Life is good here in England, although it’s quite cold and wet at the moment! Looking forward to getting a bit of sunshine back in Texas over Christmas and New Year! Hope all’s well where you are. 🙂
