David Attenborough once said “No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced”
Indeed, how will we ever be inspired to take care of our natural world if we don’t feel our innate bond with it?
… If we don’t open up to our experiences of it and our love for it?
… If we don’t recognize that nature is always here, within us and around us supporting our lives?
… If we don’t openly acknowledge the beauty and challenges involved in experiencing the vulnerability of life?
There are so many signs in the world today that it’s vital to bring our awareness back to nature – for our own well-being as well as that of the rest of the natural world.
In this context, I am excited to share with you that I have teamed up with the Wildlife Trusts of Cambridgeshire to run a course of 5 weekly-sessions looking at “Bringing Our Awareness Back to Nature” which will take place in May/June 2019 on Trumpington Meadows Nature Reserve in Grantchester, Cambridge.
It’s a true privilege to be part of the movement bringing a more experiential approach to nature engagement, and linking this to the important nature conservation work of the Wildlife Trusts.
I believe that a world that’s more mindful of nature will be happier, more peaceful and on the path to sustainability, and this course in an incredible opportunity to explore this with the Wildlife Trusts and all of you.
You can find out all about the course here and join us for a Taster Session on the morning or afternoon of Saturday 27th April at Trumpington Meadows Nature Reserve.
I look forward to seeing you there.
