Nature connection & Focusing
After completing a foundation course (Call of the wild) in Environmental education with Wildwise and Schumacher College in Devon, and In 2023 I began my training to become a Forest Guide.
I'm excited to be exploring the meeting of Focusing and Nature Connection. Our body is nature, and is not separate from the natural world. Not only can we find wisdom inside our bodies but we can find it in our relationship to nature. As we listen within, we can also listen without. Perhaps like parts of inside call for our attention, the world calls for us to be with it.
Rewilding the soul
Finding wisdom within & without
Sunday 3rd July 10-6pm, Near Stroud
Are you missing a sense of belonging? to yourself and life?
Would you like to reclaim your wildness and wisdom?
For millennia, humans have walked into the wild in search of answers. They listened and opened to what we could call their intuitive wisdom. This day workshop in nature offers a chance to reconnect to this wisdom: that lives within us and all around us in the more-than-human world. Our day will draw on ancient practices from the world of nature connection and more recent teachings from an embodied practice known as Focusing. These both point to the human body being so much wiser and more connected than we know. They point to a different kind of knowledge and experiencing beyond the cognitive realm. They offer ways to reconnect with our belonging to a bigger system - that is full of mystery and intelligence.
On the day we will:
- Open our senses to the natural world
- Learn skills and ways to connect to the body and its wisdom
- Learn to open to the wilder and more intuitive sides of ourselves
- Meet and listen to the wisdom in nature, not from your mind but with your body
Suitable for: open to anyone
