Nature Awareness and Connection Day Course

Nature Connections - finding yourself in nature

Ideal for all those who wish to deepen their relationship with nature, this day course offers a taste of some of the skills covered in the Nature Connection weekend covering all the sensory techniques, and ways of movement and camouflauge. The day will not include the tracking skills, bird language or fire by friction demonstration that are on offer in the weekend course.

Rediscover some of the skills that enabled our ancient ancestors to the 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, learn how to use your senses to their true potential, and how a knowledge of bird language enables us to have a better understanding of the natural world.

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 the philosophy that by connecting people to people, people to themselves and people to Nature we can help create re-generative community in the places that we live.
