Nature Connection Workshops

Nature Connection Circle:
Wellbeing Workshop Series

Discover a holistic connection to nature and nurture your wellbeing, creativity & kinship. Join Ecotherapist and mindfulness teacher Marion, as your workshop guide.

Date & Time: 

September TBA




Dongalla Picnic Ground



Reclaim your connection with nature and community in our Nature Connection workshop series. Explore the intrinsic link between nature, creativity and wellbeing as you embark on mindful discoveries, learning to reconnect more deeply to nature and natures systems. Unplug from technology, join a nature connection workshop and enliven your mind body as you find harmony with the natural world. 

So much of our lives is perpetually fixated on screens in human-centric places, many of us are feeling increasingly dull and disconnected from ourself, community and nature. Our workshops help you rediscover how nature is a self correcting and healing environment in balance with all of life. Learn practices that can enhance and support healthy, sustainable living in your home and community. 

Join Marion Miller, a qualified and experienced mindfulness teacher, wellbeing coach and nature therapist, as she guides you through a series of workshops carefully designed to support your health and wellbeing. Rediscover a profound sense of belonging in nature and community, inspiring creative expression, meaning making and initiating a life-sustaining journey.

Engage in the collective endeavour of slowing down, allowing us to connect more deeply with ourselves, each other, and the places we inhabit. Over the workshop series, explore the stories from your past that have shaped you and consider how the present is influencing your future self. Learn to craft meaning, cultivate deeper roots, actively protect nature, and find genuine belonging in your unique place.

Themes we will explore in the Nature Connections Workshops:

  1. Slowing Down: Let down your stress response and let do of threat, embrace the present moment, savouring the sights, sounds, and sensations of the natural environment.

  2. Tuning In: Be free of digital distractions and orient attention toward a softening mind body and the qualities of kindness, generosity, curiosity and creativity. Resource your ability to feel good and being in a positive mood.

  3. Deep Listening: Nature has a language of its own, and our workshop teaches you the art of deep listening. By attuning your senses to the subtle sounds of nature, you'll discover the wisdom that nature has to offer.

  4. Sit Spots: Find a serene spot amidst the beauty of nature and make it your sit spot. This dedicated space allows you to practice connection with the land intimately, fostering a sense of belonging and harmony with the natural world.

  5. Walking Meditation: Engage in a guided mindful walk, where each step becomes a connection to the present moment and to life. Through mindful walking, you'll experience a profound sense of grounding and unity with the earth and all creatures that inhabit it along the way.

  6. Journaling: Writing can be a powerful tool for self-reflection and self-discovery. Our workshops incorporate journaling, providing you with an opportunity to express your thoughts, feelings, and insights in writing as a nature-based reflective practice. 

  7. Community Conversation: Engage in meaningful and thought-provoking conversations with fellow participants. Share your experiences, thoughts, and revelations as you collectively explore and express the wisdom of nature and the climate change challenges of our time.

  8. Creative Practice: Excite your creative impulse and imagination through eco art making and reconnect with nature play and community. Explore creative practice such eco art, drawing and crafting with natural found objects.

  9. Environmental Wellbeing: Our workshops aim to nurture not only personal wellbeing but the wellbeing of the earth. Learn about topics like sustainable living, eco-conscious, and how health choices and environmental impact are interconnected.

  10. Cultural Narrative and Climate Change: Explore the intersection of culture and climate change and delve into the stories that shape our humanity. Together, we reflect deeply across deep time on how cultural beliefs and story influence our relationship with nature both historically and in the natural world.
