Event description

Description

Join outdoor educator, Jo Goldsmid, on this half-day experiential workshop. We'll be using our senses, memories, imagination and intuition to reconnect with a child-like wonder and appreciation of the natural world.

Expect mindful meanderings and silent games off the beaten path and under the tree canopy. You won't learn lots of facts about the wildlife - there are plenty of other courses where you can do this - but you will come away with a renewed sense of vitality and a deeper sense of belonging on this beautiful planet we call home...

Suitable for 16 years +

What participants say:

"This workshop in the beautiful THCP is wonderful. Jo gently shows us how to easily become connected, and part of, the nature around us, using sound, sight, smell and touch, along with relaxation and our childhood memories. I now have a deep, meaniful sense of being part of my surroundings instead of just an observer. An Enriching experience that opens up a new level of awareness and allows us to appreciate and connect with the amazing nature that we are all a part of" - Jackie, May2018

'I rediscovered that childhood sense of awe, wonder and connection to nature that I was longing for and since the workshop I have been making a concerted effort to spend more time outside.'

'The day made me see the extraordinary in the ordinary. I loved every minute.'

'The workshop was led with a lot of sensitivity, care and awareness.'

'The sessions gave me simple but really effective ways to connect with nature, discovering what is there right in front of me.'

'Inspirational, adventurous and transforming.'
