Experience deep listening to nature and immerse yourself in the sounds around you.

Andrew will guide a small group of participants into a sensitive listening perception of nature. In silence, and walking slowly to calm our usually over-active minds, we will immerse ourselves in the sounds around us. Andrew will conclude by offering interpretation of what we’re hearing; identifying species by call, discussing vocal behaviours and why creatures use the sounds they do.

This will be an outdoor session, requiring appropriate footwear and clothing for the weather conditions.
