A new sense of place

I’m just home from facilitating a series of Nature Connection workshops for staff and students from the University of the Arts London. The weather was pretty good –  cold but bright.

Each workshop was only an hour long, yet by the end participants had come to a quite different sense of the green spaces we were in. I was struck by this; how much people’s sense of place changed in such a short space of time! This change is even more remarkable given that most participants were already familiar with the location we were in: the place was old and yet became new.

The magic comes from simple but powerful sensory awareness exercises that can reveal how Nature’s power thrives in the midst of London’s streets.
