Patches of God-light

“Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of God-light’ in the woods of our experience.”
― C.S. Lewis

 

 

Time in nature feeds my soul
The music and poetry of these golden trees had […]

Love is the Beauty of the Soul

“Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul”– Saint Augustin

I absolutely adore St Augustin’s quote – there is nothing more beautiful for the soul than sharing this love of life with children and adults.

Today my little companions and I escaped the noise and bustle of the city and […]

How to rekindle a relationship with nature in the city

‘For a new generation, nature is more abstraction than reality. Increasingly, nature is something to watch, to consume, to wear – to ignore.’ – Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods

The Children and Nature Network invited me to take the Vitamin N challenge as one of the challenge bloggers and social networkers to help […]

Love Unites Us

I wished to convey in my painting the need to share our love – to cradle with gentleness and purity. When we hug someone, we envelope them with our love – in this embracement, peace and joy are shared. A hug makes us feel protected and loved and this touching gesture does wonders for […]

This short simple animated video represents the ever-flowing love and beauty that exists in all of us, in everything, in every moment of every day. This abundant love cultivates gratitude.

INFUSE NATURE ART ACTIVITIES INTO YOUR CURRICULUM

We know from research that contact with nature is essential for the developing child. However, not every child will be returning to a Forest School or Nature Kindergarten.

We may not be able to take our students out into the forest or down to the lakeshore during class but we can bring nature into the […]

Love is the very essence of who we are

Summer fades to give way to the birth of Autumn. The wind is crisp and fresh, the light is softer, the smells are more earthy. Just like the seasons our lives are forever changing, yet your love is ever present, always constant, warm and golden like the Autumn leaves. Your love is in me and […]

Imaginations soared, joy and laughter filled the air  – hearts sang and spirits danced as the children created the most beautiful bird and fairy homes.

The exercises we follow in my nature art program are designed […]

Radiant and joyous in her fullness, her joy gifts me joy, her […]

Nurturing the Whole Child

NURTURING THE WHOLE CHILD

We can never be whole, in harmony, balanced, unless every part of us is healthy – body, mind and spirit – if we only educate the mind we are not whole, there is an emptiness that we need to fill.

Nature helps nurture harmony and balance which in turn lead to happiness.

The […]
