Nature & Me: Mindfulness Through Nature Journalling WORKBOOK
Nature & Me: Mindfulness Through Nature Journalling WORKBOOK
From the author: "Mindfulness is the art of living fully in the present moment - to observe things as they are - without ruminating on yesterdays or worrying about imagined tomorrows. A nature journalling practice has not just given me the opportunity to slow down and observe nature in the present moment, but has allowed me a renewed sense of wonder and appreciation of our natural world - and, as a part of that world, a greater sense of compassion and love towards myself. It has allowed me to practice my drawing, develop my practice as an artist, and explore the written word. I have learned much about myself, and continue to do so."

Nature journalling is so much more than a documentation of the plants and animals we see: it is a practice of self-learning, self-love, and a connectedness with nature. This 34 page workbook is broken into four modules, each of which is designed to take a week but can, of course, be done at your own speed. Each module has exercises that explore the module's focus.

This workbook is perfect for you if:

-you have a love and fascination for the natural world as a child, but feel that the day-to-day of adult life hasn't allowed you to spend much time in nature.
-you want some time to 'switch off' and disconnect from technology.
-you want to learn more about yourself and the world around you.
-you want to explore a mindfulness practice (or build on your current practice) for your mental and emotional wellness
