Nature Awareness Weekend

Round the fire-pit.

Ideal for all those who wish to deepen their relationship with nature. Over the weekend we will re-discover some of the skills that enabled our ancient ancestors to survive and thrive in the natural world around them. Learn how to move through the natural landscape in a way that enables you to blend into the environment around you and have closer encounters with wild animals, use your sense’s to their true potential, and read the track and signs that are laid out on the ground around you by knowing some of the basic skills of tracking.

You will be introduced to the concept of interpreting bird language and learn how this knowledge can lead a better understanding of what is going on around you, by beginning to decipher the messages they bring us. See a fire started using the magical method of fire-by-friction through a visual demonstration of the bow-drill.

Explore how a deep knowledge of place can start you off on a life long journey of experiencing the endless and exciting mysteries that nature has for us to find, and the joy that sharing these experiences with others can bring. Take home a tool kit of practical skills, techniques, games, sensory awareness, and other ancient technologies that can be passed on to friends and family to help us all re-connect with the natural world.

All this within the setting of a beautiful woodland near Dartmoor, where we will share organic food, stories, music, and laughter around the camp fire. Please bring along your own creativity, poetry, magic, instruments, conversation and knowledge as we come together around the fire pit.

More than just a Nature Connection weekend, based on the philosophy that by connecting with each other, ourselves and nature we can help create re-generative communities in the places that we live.

There are no Nature Awareness Weekends planned this year, but there will be a series of day courses. Alternatively, I can hold a Nature Awareness Day in your area. To arrange please contact me.
