Rambling Conversations is a 6-week workshop that invites participants to reflect on 2020 and re-imagine the future.

The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) today announces a new program that offers guests an opportunity to pause, reflect, and set intentions as they transition into 2021.

In this six-week group-coaching opportunity facilitated by certified coach and avid rambler Lorna Jane Norris, participants meet weekly to explore the rolling hills, tree-line carriage paths, and rocky shores of Hingham’s beautiful World’s End Reservation. Anyone who has their best ideas when walking and are looking to make lasting changes in 2021 with the support of some new friends is encouraged to sign up.

No pressure -- comfortable walking shoes and an open mind are all that is needed. The beauty of World’s End, the company of your co-ramblers, and a compassionate guide and coach will take care of the rest. COVID safety protocols require all participants to wear face coverings and, because this offering is limited to 12 people, the small group size allows social distancing.

“For most people, 2020 has been an extraordinarily challenging year and they’re looking for an internal reset for 2021,” said Trustees South Shore Portfolio Director Anne Smith-White. “The Trustees is thrilled to adapt our unique outdoor properties into places of safe escape and reflection during the pandemic.”

Lorna Jane Norris offers coaching to individuals, teams, and organizations who are navigating a transition; working with clients to explore endings, raise awareness about what is unfolding, and to create potential pathways forward. Her coaching certification is through the Gestalt International Study Center, an accredited ICF program.

The program will run six Tuesdays at World’s End, Martin’s Lane, Hingham, between January 26 – March 2, from 9:00-10:30 am. Pre-registration at is required and a commitment to all six sessions is requested. The cost is $120 for Trustees Members and $150 for non-members, with parking at World’s end included.
