Connection to Place: Nature-Based Mindfulness Course Outline


Week 1: 

Inner and Outer Nature - Embodying Nature Connection

Minds change bodies, and bodies change minds and all this happens in the wider context of natural ecosystems. Learn about the connection between thoughts, emotions, somatic awareness and behavioural habits. Practice mindfulness attitudes, open up your identity to the elemental world and re-discover inter-being and animism. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world, open your senses, ground yourself in the present moment, and forge a profound relationship with the elements that shape your environment. Discover the joy of shifting out of habitual thinking to embrace instinctive knowledge and awareness. Find your own sacred sit spot in nature and watch as it transforms your relationship with life. 


Week 2:

Unearthing Your Creative Self - Stories, Ancestry, and Visions of Deep Time.

Reconnect with the stories that shaped your childhood, and unveil the rich tapestry of your family of origin. Creatively journey into the past to map your story to ancestral land, gaining profound insights into your roots. Explore the natural elements that have influenced your life and envision your future self, purpose, and place. Create your own spirit house and practice a nature ritual and continue to allow your story to be uncovered through daily habit.


Week 3: 

Rooted in Belonging - Caring for Country and Protecting What We Love

Deepen your connection to the local environment by understanding it's first nations people and history, geography and communities. As we become intimate with nature and open our heart we discover how much we care. Reflect on the difficult emotions we feel as parts of nature are harmed as a result of the climate crisis. Actively transform feelings of despair into movement to care and protect mother nature. Learn about sustainable living activities in your local community. Explore mindful gardening for biodiversity, movement, wilderness adventures and walking that will sustain your nature connection and give you a renewed sense of purpose.
