Are you longing to feel more alive, creative and connected to yourself and to the natural world

Do you enjoy photography and want to explore it as away to connect more to the natural world?

Can our smartphone or camera be a source of connection rather than distraction?

Can we use technology to bring us closer to nature?
Through awareness practices, mindfulness, playful explorations, time both together and alone in nature, we will immerse ourselves in the exploration of using photography and our amazing human senses to connect more with the natural world, ourselves, and each other. We will see the extraordinary in the ordinary and experience the opposite of 'snapping away'.

The natural world is both a mirror and a teacher, It can lead us into a profound full experience of both being fully alive and of belonging. Armed with our senses and our cameras/phones we will set out to deepen this connection to the natural world and ourselves

We will start off inside the Round House at Stroud Community Farm in the grounds of Hawkwood College, before going on a gentle walk of less than a mile, through woods and meadows to Folly Wood, a community owned woodland.

The photography side of things will be kept simple, low tech and fun. You can use any device you choose, from a mobile phone, tablet or a digital camera. The workshop is suitable for all abilities and levels of photography experience. As well as improve your photography skills, the workshop will help you improve your every day wellbeing by encouraging you to take notice and become more aware of the beauty that is all around us.
