A Heart for Nature

Stepping into the awe-thentic outdoors

Workshop - NZ$50 pp

Society has lost its way with nature, but it’s not a lost cause. We can find our way back. If we start in our settings, infuse life wherever possible, and let children be in-touch with nature whenever possible we are on the right path. When we value being as well as doing, when we go beyond the surface and go for real connection, then the foundations for a bright future are laid. Our children will set down their nature loving roots, and being in and caring for this Earth will be as natural to them as taking a breath.

But how do we do that? How do we prepare to go truly outdoors with the children, beyond putting on our shoes and coat?

Join Anja and Tessa in a WORKSHOP on how you can not only open the doors but step outside and be hands-on and hearts-in nature with the child.

We will examine our attitudes to the outdoors and what we believe children need. We will look at some of the obstacles we know are in our path, our internal stories we carry about nature, and anything that prevents us from fully embracing the child-nature connection and allowing it to flourish. We will stop and notice our mindset towards nature, and explore how we can give it the makeover it needs so we can be more willing, relaxed, calm and engaged with our children.

This 2 hours workshop will unpack our new Hands-on and Hearts-in Nature toolkit and give you practical and inspirational ideas for reconnecting the child with nature and feel at home in nature.

We need to stop stealing and start sealing the child’s connection with nature!
