"When you show up for nature,
nature shows up for you." John Muir Laws
Nature Journaling - Showing up for Nature
We live with constant demands on our attention.
Do you want a break from information overload? Most people in South Africa live in urban areas, where this seems difficult to find.
Even when you spend time in nature-rich spaces, you may miss out on the benefits.
You may be:
moving too quickly
to connect with nature.
Nature journaling is a simple way to create peace and quiet in your life - wherever you are. All you need is something to write with and something to write on.
Recording by hand slows you down.
As you slow down, you relax.
You notice more.
You connect more deeply with nature.
A Practice as Old as Humankind -
Began in Southern Africa
The practice of keeping a nature journal has a long and illustrious history.
Southern Africa is home to the first peoples and the earliest evidence of nature journaling - rock art.
