A workshop with Stefan Lirsch
In contact with Forest Pedagogy

This workshop is about being in and with nature. We will try out new approaches to get into contact with the environment and with ourselves, and learn to use the resources it provides us. This includes self-awareness and -experience in nature on the one hand and on the other hand you will learn about forest pedagogy and how it can help social learning, prevent violence, deepen ecological consciousness, relaxation and so on.

We will do exercises to refine our senses and our awareness, and play team- and movement-games to come together as a group and to have fun. We will also explore stillness and our creativity. In group discussions we will reflect about our experiences, about forest pedagogy, children and the importance of being outside and in contact with nature.
