Learning from Knysna Forest


Using the lens of biomimicry, our minds are opened to a new way of viewing and valuing the natural world….no longer seeing it as a warehouse of resources merely to be extracted from, but rather a library of solutions we can learn from. During this forest experience, not only will we reaffirm our deep interconnection and oneness with nature, but we will also discover the elegantly simple ingenuity of a forest ecosystem that is as humbling as it is awe-inspiring.   

Taking the lessons from this system we will further explore how we can apply them in our everyday lives and re-establish our place as an integral member of the wonderfully complex and deeply interconnected community of Life on Earth.
