This unique event leverages perceptions of venomous animals, to create a deeper awareness and connection not only to the environment, but also who we are.
Our understanding and connection to the world operates upon the following levels.
- Those of us who are completely disconnected and completely unaware of the world around them.
- Those of us who are aware of the world, but don't pay too much attention. Superficial perceptions of the world create a distraction from what truly matters in life.
- Those of us with an outward flow or awareness. These are the labellers and namers, those people who can name species of trees, insects, birds and mammals, but lack an understanding of how it all fits together.
- Those of us who have an inward flow of awareness of the environment. The environment feeds them, provides order and sanity in a world gone mad. They don't have to name everything or understand natural processes. These are the people who can sit under a tree, go for a walk, and experience a sense of being and connection.
The aim of this creepy crawly walk is to enable participants to increase their connectedness and understanding of the environment. It explores our values and beliefs, who we aspire to be which in turn connect to the future.
This unique event is presented by Jonathan Leeming.
