Learning from nature

I have a regular personal training session in the local park in Kirkcaldy and was amazed today when my trainer took me to this group of trees. Beneath the trees the council have place stones in a circle that say:

"Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven"

Wow - on sooooo many levels because:

  • nature is being used as a metaphor
  • nature is being used as a reminder of the endless need for communication.
  • I've only just finalised the details of a workshop 'overcoming business challenges naturally'
If you have a challenge in your life you'd like insight on why not use nature as your teacher? You simply have to:
  • Think of the issue
  • Put the issue to the back of your mind
  • Go out into nature and notice what you notice
  • Return and tell the story of your journey in nature (to yourself, in writing or to others)
  • Reflect on what nature has to teach you about what to do differently in the issue you first thought of
  • Take the necessary action
  • Let me know how you get on :-)  
What situation can you use this process to provide insight on, and when will you take the step into nature in order to allow it's wisdom into your life?
