Event description
NEW Leading Earthwalks Workshop - including the newly published Earthwalk book with lots more sensory activities.

About this Event

Earth education is the process of helping people of all ages live more harmoniously and joyously with the natural world. One of the most commonly led earth education vehicles for encouraging people to feel the joy, kinship, reverence and love for the natural world is an Earthwalk -- 'a light, refreshing touch of nature that focuses on reawakening individual senses and sharpening perceptions in the natural world.’ This will be one of the first workshops in the UK to launch the new Earthwalk book “Earthwalks, an alternative nature experience" - packed with old and NEW sensory based activities and with an in-depth look at how to conduct Earthwalks, for all ages.

What you will gain: An introduction to earth education and where Earthwalks ‘fit’ in our programmes; A chance to plan and review your own Earthwalk; Experience two different Earthwalks; In-depth analysis on leadership, mechanics, and flow of an Earthwalk; An update on earth education developments.

The day starts at 9.00am and finishes at 5.00pm with indoor and outdoor sessions

“”This has been a very intense workshop full of content and incredible relational learning - I feel equipped to lead an Earthwalk - a very special adventure with nature, pure magic” participant on Earthwalk workshop - Italy Autumn 2018

The workshop will be lead by Mark Jefferys who has been running earth education activities and programmes since the 1980’s and an earth education trainer for many years!!”
