Over five weeks we will explore the 5 Pathways to Nature Connectedness that were developed by Miles Richardson, Ryan Lumber and David Sheffield in the UK in 2015, in response to our global nature connection crisis. This course has been developed to provide an introduction to each of the 5 Pathways and will offer accessible and practical suggestions to improve individual Nature Connection. At the end of the 5 weeks you will have developed a toolkit of the best ways of being in and interacting with nature.
Every Monday evening, from the comfort of your own home, make some time for yourself. Find a quiet spot where you can meet with our tutor, Victoria Gregory, via zoom. She will guide you and your group using mindfulness/meditative practices, group sharing and practical activities that can be used throughout the week. There will be no more than 10 people in your session.
Each week we will be introducing a new pathway and will explore how each approach can help us to deepen our own connection to the natural world, and improve our own sense of wellbeing in the process.
A delegate from our last class wrote: I thought it was a really well- balanced course- between theory & practice, and also between more formal presentations by Victoria and informal discussions with everyone sharing ideas/ experiences. It was great to have a variety of different 'homework' every week - some more creative, some more observational. I enjoyed looking at nature through the different lenses of painting, photography, poetry & folklore too, as it gave new perspectives.
