Listen more often .......
I have been "walking with" the children of Marine Park Primary School in South Shields for 12 years. I experience walking as a way of waking; waking up to our full embodied selves , to noticing what's really real..... saying less and listening more.
We spent a really, truly awake and fully present time in woods near Brancepeth this week....walking, listening, sensing and feeling.... The fieldwork of the sensory reciprocal realm.

With thanks to "Magnificent" Malcolm Green the bird-man for his evergreen enthusiasm and for sharing his knowledge so generously.
Thanks also to Professor Rachel Woodward for this opportunity which has so enriched and enlivened the children's experience of life
