About the event
Being outside for long periods of time is the biological norm for all living creatures. Humans throughout history and around the world have spent time outside comfortably, without causing discomfort to others, including non-humans. Awareness is a key skill that allows us to more fully inhabit the world. Understanding natural cycles, being able to identify plants and animals, as well as avoiding hazards, are all informed by our own sense of natural awareness.
We'll discuss the natural cycle of the four directions, learn techniques for observation, listen to bird language, practice skills like soft walking with peripheral vision and emphasize how tactile touch connects us with our surroundings. Donations of $5-10 graciously accepted.
