CI class with Sam Bloomfield.

Into nature, your nature

A class of somatic expression with nature. From the multiplicity of us as bacteria, virus’s and cells, to the singularity of our intention, to the multiplicity of a tree as being, texture, breath, fungi and life and the singularity of their form and direction; dancing with the weight and depth of earth as ground and the sweet scent of 10,000 delicate blades of grass.

What you will need:

A smart phone


Somewhere where you have mobile data

A tree in a park/a tree in nature with no brambles underneath/in your garden.

If it is raining, take an umbrella, waterproof jacket and use your breath to heat yourself up, or you can be indoors.

Please find the class structure below (or if you just wish to do your own nature enquiry then check in, set an alarm go off and Harvest with us at the end please.

Disclaimer: Particularly in this class as the facilitator is not with you and has no control over the space or place you chose to be in, please continue to take responsibility for the choices you make and how you interact with your environment. Nature may react in unforeseen ways/present issues to deal with so please take it slow and act with care for yourselves and other beings. (I.e watch out for dog poo, grass snakes and nettles!)
