Connecting with Nature

Reconnecting with nature is a simple, accessible way to ground ourselves.

It enables us to identify our true self, introduce calming practices into our day and gives us a strategy for handling the stress that life can deliver.

5 week online course in which you can participate from home and nature spots near you.

1 Day Live Workshop for those who wish to come along in person.

In this online course, we will look at simple methods for connecting with different elements of nature and energy. The areas covered are:
Trees and Plants; Earth; Water; Air.

We will guide you through meditations, mindfulness exercises and observations: Connecting with Nature from the heart chakra, grounding and rebalancing. We will teach you tools to use as daily practice and in times of crisis. Whilst you will identify favourites amongst these, we have ensured that there is a variety for you to use in different places and seasons throughout the year. At the end of the course, you will have a variety of tools to rely on for self help.

The course will also have creative experiences where you can bring these nature connections into the home, whether you live in a city centre or the countryside. We will be making a Japanese dry rock garden, a water feature and a wind mobile.
