After the welcoming round with greetings, exchange of expectations, and sensory exercises, we went into the forest, where all participants took a seat. It’s astonishing how the forest comes to life when one sits quietly and motionlessly for half an hour. At the end, there was an attention exercise and a trust exercise in pairs, before all participants shared their thoughts on the past hours, seating in a circle.
We are pleased that on this day all the committees of the Daniel Schlegel Umweltstiftung came together and spent this wonderful day. A day in nature is decelerating and positively impacts the spirit. We all should spend much more time in nature. Because we are convinced of the positive effects, we bring Berlin school classes together with wilderness mentors. This helps to reconnect the children with nature.
