Circle of Life Rediscovery


Welcome to Circle of Life Rediscovery CIC. Since 2004 we have been working to reconnect people from all backgrounds and ages to the natural world.

We have two primary aims:

To move people to a more mature and respectful relationship with the natural world.
To influence a change in cultural, personal and environmental values.

Why we do it?

We see time and time again how rediscovering nature benefits all ages.  It makes us happier, healthier, increases our self-esteem, empathy, helps us to learn and instils a lifelong love of nature.  

In the outdoors, all our senses are stimulated, we feel alive, inspired and ready for anything! We want a future where nature matter's, where we capture what people have to offer, and realise we all are important.

What do we do?

We provide nature based experiences that are educational, fun and life-changing!  Join us on our inspiring activity days for schools or family days in the woodlands; look out for our unique residential camps and Forest schools.

Gain a qualification in leading your own Forest School programme; improve your knowledge and skills with our adult training days or find out more about our life-changing funded projects!

Together we can change the world!

"The circle if the universal symbol of wholeness, where the end is also the beginning and represents the unity of all life.  Life is a circle that moves from birth to old age to death and new life.  The circle is the most common shape in nature. When people sit in a circle, everyone is equal."

"“It is easy for us to get caught up in the day to day issues that plague our own lives, our families, communities and nations, and loose sight of a broader vision to create a better world. To think that one person cannot make a profound change in the world is to not understand the cause of human development – for it is the only thing that ever has, ” is our differences that keep us together – “in the final analysis it will be our uncommonality more than our common ground that will provide the fertile soil for us to sow seeds of respect and understanding – the very soul of Rediscovery."
