Deepening Nature - an exploration of bird language

  • Sacred Earth, Low Weald, East Sussex (map)

Understanding the language of the birds – what they are telling each other and what they are telling us – is a skill which has many practical applications that will enrich your life in surprising ways, helping you to embody the attributes that lead to success in many areas of your life.

Who needs Eckhart Tolle, when you have the Birds?

Jon Young,
author of What The Robin Knows

Bird language is an ancient skill that people have used to help them survive and thrive for thousands of years. It is a skill which has largely been forgotten by modern peoples, but which is sorely needed at this time of cultural upheaval and nature’s shifting patterns.

In an era marked by increasing disconnection from nature, self and others, the practice of learning bird language will give you the tools to be successful in your relationships, your career, your community and in your life in general by enhancing your ability to experience empathy, compassion, attentiveness, sensitivity to your surroundings and others, and increased awareness.

Bird language and your participation in daily activities will open up a new world of understanding and help achieve a “Quiet Mind” resulting in increasing peace and happiness. This has a ripple effect that will benefit you and your loved ones, enhancing our ability to become a successful nature mentor and create healthy communities.
