The Nature of You workshop is designed to provide children with invaluable insights into their emotions and an understanding of how their minds work, empowering them to navigate their lives with confidence and self-awareness.
Emotional intelligence is a vital skill for success and happiness in life. The Nature of You interactive workshop combines fun and engaging activities with thought-provoking discussions to help children explore exactly what it means to be human, in a safe and supportive environment.
This is a half-day introductory outdoor workshop for children aged 7-11 where we explore the essence of being human in relation to the natural environment. This workshop is more than just about getting outside. It is intentionally slow-paced, giving children the time and space they need to understand themselves and the world around them better. At the core of everything I do is the understanding that humans are nature and by really seeing how the natural world works, there is so much to learn about how we work.
We are all born with innate mental health
It is my passion to share with children in this unique way, that they are born with innate mental health and I provide them with information and experiences that can help them to really understand this for themselves.
The Wild Wellbeing ethos is not just about helping children feel better now – it’s about giving them a fundamental understanding of how humans work which can help them as they go forward in their lives.
Slowing down to the rhythm of nature
In this workshop, I really encourage children to take a deeper look at nature through all of their senses. I offer them the chance to slow their minds and bodies down to the rhythm of nature, to look at how it naturally thrives, adapts, is resilient, creative, calm and wise and to turn their attention to themselves to see how that’s also true for them.
After the workshop, children will understand that:
- We are all a part of nature and as such, we share the same characteristics
- We are plugged into the same universal intelligence as the natural world
- Our thoughts and emotions are like the weather – temporary and always moving
- How we feel has nothing to do with anything outside of us
- We have the capacity to thrive, despite how we feel
