How To Connect With Nature

How To Connect With Nature

For the first time ever, more than half of the world’s population live in cities. For the vast majority of human history, our environment has been predominantly natural, but now it is urban, and increasingly virtual. As we spend more and more of our lives interacting with technology, this class asks what nature means, why we need it, and how reclaiming our place in the natural world might help us be more fully human.

Connecting with nature means more than simply getting a little fresh air. Rather, it entails reconsidering our individuality, and recalibrating our wider human and ecological relationships. We believe that a fuller connection with nature is an essential part of a good life, allowing us to temper envy and see ourselves from a proper perspective.

This class traces the history of the separation between humans and nature and considers how reconnecting with the natural can provide a vital path to emotional health.

ABOUT CORE CLASSES

Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.

These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture, conversation and group activity.  Optional homework is provided for those interested in further study.
