Creatively Connecting to Nature Network

November 17, 2012

HumaNature Connect offers group experiences that explore and enhance connections with nature and self using creative expression and experiential process.

Its mission is to facilitate profound, personal awareness about the critical role that human – nature connections play in the positive health and well-being of the whole natural world. We believe that by developing this mindfulness, individuals can make a positive difference to the global issue of sustainability.

HumaNature Connect also hosts the Creatively Connecting to Nature Network that has been established to enable practitioners to meet with other like-minded folk to share and explore their practice, experientially. This is for you if you a facilitator, artist, educator, therapist or any other practitioner that uses creative expression in your work to explore relationships with nature.

Where are all the Bindarri posts?

Just a quick update to let you know we are still here. Our posting has slowed down as our key members have been focusing on Bindarri’s Garden Project.

We are building websites for Friends of the Earth Australia and Beyond Zero Emissions, as well as a new mapping project.

Sometimes it is more important to work for change rather than blog about it…

Remember that you can add blog posts to Bindarri. If you would like to join the team to post with us, let us know.
