About This Class

It's really important for me to feel connected with nature. This in turn helps me connect more deeply with myself.

I’ve kept a nature journal on and off for many years, and have used different formats and layouts. Sometimes the format is more scientific, sometimes it’s more artistic.

This class will guide you through the process of beginning a nature journal, even if you have never done anything like this before.

Class topics will focus on: choosing a journal, deciding on writing/sketching tools, mindfulness, connecting with your surroundings and senses, and connecting with feelings of awe and connection.

By the end of the class you will have a Nature Journal of your own, and you will have established a regular practice of journaling in nature.

You'll have two files you can download to help you:

A help sheet containing the sections to include in each Nature Journal entry

A planning sheet to help you plan continued journaling sessions

Project: You will create an awesome Nature Journal page full of creativity, insightful observations, heartfelt connections, and sketches; and you will have a habit plan to keep up with your new Nature Journaling practice.

This class is for anyone who wants to learn the skill of Nature Journaling. No prior experience is required.
