Deep Nature Dive October - Andy Raingold Sat 27 Oct

  • Sustainability

A sensory exploration of deep time with combines science, imagination, meditation, movement and nature connection.

“The Deep Time Dive is an opportunity to dive deeper into nature, to learn from its wisdom, to find a sense of connection, and to awaken delight and gratitude. My needs for connection, belonging, love, sustenance and trust have been fulfilled.”

We exist largely within a human scale of time. Days, weeks, and deadlines – decades and generations. Rarely do we attempt to comprehend the context of the timescales of the earth which is vast, complex, and full of unknowns. By shifting our perspectives in this way, we come into deeper connection with ourselves and nature.

This workshop is a sensory exploration of deep time which combines science, imagination, meditation, movement and nature connection. As part of this workshop, experience the 4.6 billion years since the formation of our home to the present day in 46 minutes with each minute representing 100 million years. 

There will be plenty of opportunities to explore the beautiful grounds of Hawkwood and we will gather in a heated roundhouse and around an open fire pit. 

This workshop can be taken on its own or as part of a full weekend programme, Being in Awe 

Cost: £40.  Bring and share lunch. 10am - 5pm

Location SCA Farm strawbale building

“A wonderful, nourishing, revitalising experience, which anyone will leave feeling more in tune with themselves and our natural world.”

“Thank you so much for getting me back out to nature and for making me realise how tiny and how powerful am. I felt the curve of the earth beneath my back and wriggled my toes in Antarctica.”

“Thank you for giving me time and spiritual science on a different level to anything I have experienced before. Keep up your incredible work. ”

“I feel very nourished, connected to the land and my soul. I am very inspired, happy and touched to be part of this special moment in human history.”
