Experiences

The best way we learn is through experiences

In today’s world, we tend to often only focus on the intellectual, rational mind and ignore the emotional connection to the world that is so important. Let’s change that.

The best way to learn is to do

Through deep experiences we aim to provide individuals with the opportunity to reach significant insights and self-realization of who they want to be in the world, while equipping them with the philosophy, science and tools to put that into practice.

Ecological Presencing - Three Course Overview

Oct 3, 2020

This 10 day expedition takes you into the heart of the African bushveld for an African safari with a difference. The expedition will be run in 3 modules, including Systems Thinking, Deep Ecology and Biomimicry. We will begin by exploring how systems function ranging from the ecological to the social and personal systems we have created in our everyday lives with a particular focus on interconnectedness as we experience the Savanna bushveld. Workshop style sessions indoors will compliment our outdoor activities as we map systems and explore feedback and leveraging points. After this perspective shifting module, we will move into a place of deeper presencing with the Deep Ecology module. For 3 days we will camp next to a dry riverbed, as we slow down and tune our senses to nature and connect with wilderness through walking, observing, and tracking. The final 4 days will provide you with practical and innovative toolsets and mindsets going forward as you learn to apply Life's Principles in your own work and reconnect to the genius of design through biomimicry. This program has something for everyone whether you are in design, academia, the corporate world, or just looking to reconnect with nature after a stifling COVID-19 related lockdown. Choose to do one, two, or all three modules; joining for the full program will be a transformational experience designed to inspire you to Know, Be and Do in connection with earth’s natural systems. This expedition will be facilitated by professionals, Claire Janisch, Sam Chevallier, and Karen Vickers. Please see the individual experiences on our website for more information on each.

This course aided individuals on how to incorporate biomimicry into their lives. The course covered the basic principles of biomimicry, whilst also providing tools such as Life’s Principles to apply to your work/education. We created an opportunity to encounter animals in the wild, on foot, while learning from nature rather than just about nature.
