Connecting with Nature in Spring
Time & Location
About the Event
The five-day challenge is back! The nature connection in winter challenge was so popular, I’m running it again to help us all get into the habit of daily time in nature.
From Saturday March 20th to Wednesday March 24th, I’m offering a complimentary five-day challenge to deepen your connection with nature *Please scroll down for details of how to join*
So many of us have recognised the immense benefits of nature connection during the pandemic, going out for regular walks and/or spending more time in our gardens.
And an even deeper, closer connection with nature is possible, with a few simple daily practices.
Drawing on practices from the ‘30-Days of Loving Nature’ programme, this five-day challenge is designed to boost your connection with nature as we transition from winter into spring at the coming equinox.
You may be surprised to learn that it's perfectly possible to connect deeply with nature while indoors. I’ll encourage participants to go outside if you possibly can during the five days, but there’ll be indoor alternatives for folks who live in apartments, those who are shielding or isolating, or for whatever reason can’t easily go outside
How will it work?
Starting on March 20th, you’ll receive an email each day for five days, with a simple nature connection practice.You'll also be invited to join an optional support forum on Facebook, where you can post each day to share your reflections or insights, in words or photos, with others who are also taking part in the challenge.
Once the challenge has completed, your membership of the Facebook community may continue, if you wish to share how your connection with nature is unfolding during the spring. You’ll belong to a nature-loving community, where holding yourself accountable is a great way to maintain your nature-connection practice.
For those who complete the five-day challenge and would like more, there will be a 50% discount offer on the full ‘30-Days of Loving Nature Programme’ if you sign up by Easter Monday, April 5th.
Why am I offering this?
This challenge is my gift to you since I know how deeply nature soothes, supports and strengthens us. I love to share the rich rewards of a deepening nature connection, which is for life and not just for lockdown.
Here are what some participants of my five-day winter challenge last December discovered:
“A beautiful gift, such a 5 day challenge. It brings you back to yourself and your connection with nature, our home. Karen shows us beautiful exercises to do in nature. I enjoyed it very much” - Peter Massy
“There really is something for everyone in this 5 day challenge. No matter what your level of connection already is, there's always something new to learn and discover that can be profound or filled with joy. My heart is singing again!” - Sian Cornelius
“I loved the way you crafted the words for each 'lesson', with a lovely poem and then full descriptions taking account of lots of different situations, I thought it was lovely and generous in spirit, thank you Karen :-)” - Lolly
“There were practices in this mini course that I haven't come across before, which were very profound for me. Taking part has enriched my experiences of being in nature by increasing my awareness of using my senses when I'm immersed in the natural world. Thank you for this wonderful gift of deep nature connection moments.” - Eliza

Simply email me at email@example.com with ‘Spring Challenge’ in the subject line, by March 18th.
Then check your inbox (and your spam folder if nothing turns up) on Saturday 20th March. The challenge will only take half an hour or so of your time each day to do the practice and share in the community.
I hope to see you then!
