“To be admitted to Nature’s hearth costs nothing. None is excluded, but excludes himself. You have only to push aside the curtain – Henry David Thoreau”
How can we encourage our children toward a confident and trusting relationship with the natural world they will inherit?
How can we maintain our own connection to the young child’s inherent fascination with – and wonder at – the natural world?
What do our children need from their home environment in order to find a healthy and enduring balance between the digital and the tactile world of the senses?
How can the home environment stimulate curiosity and promote productive, engaged, incidental learning?
How do we bring ‘ensouled warmth’ or a sense of ‘hearth’ 1 to our modern homes – with their shiny surfaces and self-conscious attention to the latest trends in décor?
1 hearth: literary def: a home, especially when seen as a place of comfort and love
… 90 minute sessions incorporating observation and conversation around the choices we make for our home environment, the values that drive our choices and what we’d like to change / work toward.
Suitable for individuals and couples.
An initial conversation-based session is recommended, followed by a home visit and subsequent engagement in a comprehensive, collaborative process.
