Coming Back to Earth: a map for the new normal image

The aim of this online course is to help you make sense of the lockdown times and discover the keys that can give you for life and work in the future.

Taking place over two consecutive Saturday morning Zoom sessions of 2 hours each, with time in nature in between. The weeks of lockdown gave us a chance to pause, to reflect and to think deeply about what matters and what’s important - family, friendships, and purpose - and to think about doing things differently.

As we start to 'unlock' and come back to earth, this is a powerful moment, a chance to make different choices in our lives and work, to integrate what we’ve realised in the new normal.

But how can you make sure you keep hold of what you've learned in the 'pause', retain agency, and don’t go back to business as usual - whether that’s in your community, at work, or for the environment?

Join Nigel Berman of School of the Wild and Charlotte Du Cann of the Dark Mountain Project on two Zoom sessions one week apart with time on your own in nature in between - if you'd like to reflect with fellow explorers and dive into what you can do individually and collectively, to bring to life the learning, ideas and plans that come out of a quieter and wilder space.
