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 +
Choice of two dates:
9 September 10.00 — 1.00
