True Nature

This introductory webinar will give a taster of how we can develop insight into impermanence, self, the causes of mental suffering and our true nature by observing and learning from the natural world around us. We will explore through meditation together online and through focused exercises to try outdoors how mindfulness of nature can help us to gain insight into our internal eco-system of thoughts, emotions, sensations and perceptions. In line with traditional insight meditation, we will explore experiential meditation practices that examine the nature of self and interconnectedness with all life.

Paul's philosophy

He is passionate about how an understanding of mindfulness and traditional insight meditation practices can give us a deeper sense of connection and oneness with nature. He believes that in this process both our sense of isolation and mental suffering can be relieved as well as helping to inspire action that heals our connection with the earth. One of his earliest inspirations for practicing meditation came from sitting in nature and experiencing the sense of belonging and not being separate. Since then, nature has been a constant support, inspiration and teacher throughout his journey with mindfulness meditation. Having lived for a number of years in a meditation retreat centre where he helped take care of the woodland, he has a particular resonance with the power of the forest to cultivate stillness and understanding. Drawing both on modern mindfulness and ancient insight meditation practices he believes that we can gain a much deeper insight into our internal world by taking the time to be with, explore and learn from the natural world.
