What if there was a way to help expand our senses to levels of awareness in the world that allow for deep understanding, empathy, creativity and full connection? 

Well... there is.
The Birds offer us a great gift to be able to lift us out of our minds and thoughts and place us deeply into the senses, the place of real understanding and connectivity.  Through the birds we can tap into the flow of the landscape and the beings that are moving across it. Our place. We can start to access a four dimensional picture, using all the senses, of the place that we inhabit and the flow of life that is there. Being fully alive and in the moment of now. 

Why is this important? 
If the life of a human being is to experience as fully as possible the gift and joy of being truly alive in ourselves and learn the great wisdom of other forms of life then surely we need to switch on and pay attention. 

Imagine a world where the next generation of children are fully awake and delighting in and learning from the experience of life itself. That they are connected deeply to themselves, others and the natural world. 

Come and experience one of the most powerful core routines to help create deep nature connection in yourself and be able to pass this ancestral gift to our children. 

What will we do? 
During this one day CPD we will:

  • Look at switching on the senses to as deep a level as possible and explore processes to keep them on. 
  • Through theory backed up with direct experience, start to pick out the voices of the birds and what they can tell us. 
  • Identify the birds that offer the most learning possibilities and why. 
  • Understand how birds move, why and what this means.
  • Explore the interconnectedness of all life and how that can enrich our everyday lives. 
  • Understand how bird language can keep us safe. 
  • We will also throughout the day show ways to pass this on to people you work with, be that children or adults. 

 Come and join us for this magical day and switch on to the beauty of life!

On this day we will learn the important and precious knowledge of how to process acorn. We will create delicious and nourishing food including acorn flour and share simple recipes that can inspire you to try this at home or with groups of all ages in the forest.

The Oak is a well loved and respected tree of this land. It has been called the 'King of the Woods' and in the essence of true kingship, this tree supports, shelters and nourishes more variety of life in the ecology of Britain than any other.

Some say that an old oak may support over a thousand species from the tiniest insects, fungi, lichen and mosses to birds and mammals large and small. Oak provides shelter and has been an important timber in human buildings for many generations. The advent of farming created many huge changes in peoples relationship to the land, one of the least known and yet significant, was that once people who once processed and ate acorn, then turned to grain as their staple.
