Living Arts Weekly: Calling all Outdoor Educators!

January 10, 2021

Hi everyone!

We are excited to announce our Learning in Nature series.  The first course in the series, Learning in Nature, has been offered previously. It’s one of our more popular online courses.  We are offering it again beginning January 20th, so please join us! You can click the box below for more details:

Our second course in the Learning in Nature series is being developed RIGHT NOW, and will begin in March!  This is where we need your help.  This two week “deeper dive” will focus on the inner work of the adult. (You can read more about it here.)

If you’ve been spending more time in nature with children lately, either your own children or the children in your program/school, what are the practices that help you in your work?

  • Do you spend time in meditation?
  • Have you discovered any resources that help you prepare for your work with the children in nature?
  • Do you and your colleagues do something special to center yourselves before the children arrive?
  • Do you have a nature observation practice?

Please share what is working for you!  You can email your ideas to me at

I’d love to hear from you!
