Nature Writing – A Sense of Self, A Sense of Place

Montana

 I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

William Wordsworth

 

Spend time in Nature and discover what it has to teach you!

All you need is a quiet space and an attitude of curiosity and mindfulness.  You don’t need to know biology or anything about animals, insects, fish or other creatures to enjoy the gifts of the natural world. The goal of this nature writing workshop is to build a sense of wonder and respect for the natural environment, creating the ability to appreciate nature as a source of inspiration and pleasure.

The workshop provides an opportunity for participants to hone their observational skills and become aware of the “sense of place” they are in, whether it is within a deep cedar forest, beside a flowing river or on a windswept mountain top. You will have space and time to reflect on the landscape around you as well as your inner landscape.

Simple techniques will help you develop skills in observing, appreciating, and writing about nature’s beauty and mysteries.  You will learn to tap into the uniqueness of selected environments and establish a sense of place with focus on the physical, historical and emotional characteristics of each landscape.

Workshops vary in length and location. Excellent for nature lovers of all ages!
