Lake Mansfield - exercise, nature, observation, meditation, poetry!

Daily rambles can be essential to happy days, no matter what the weather! 

This morning, Lily was delighted to find Lake Mansfield Road ready for all walkers to enjoy! 

Later she slipped into the snow-filled forest to enjoy the quiet loveliness! 

Her companion was whispering a poem that makes for a lovely moving meditation: 


When All the World is Full of Snow

I never know
Just where to go,
When all the world
Is full of snow.

I do not want
To make a track,
Not even
To the shed and back.

Julie and the LM Explorers Club 7.22.22

In a multi-sensory morning, Red Fox, also known as Julie Kunz, shared her understandings of the nature through objects, story, movement and games. 

The Lake Mansfeild Explorers were captivated!  We worked together to identify animal and plant materials. We learned to listen and move with fox feet. 

We listened to stories and played games they inspired, challenging ourselves to close our eyes to strengthen our awareness of other senses. Then into the Lake Mansfield Woods we went to a special spot.

To play Otter and Fish!

To try on stealth to steal sticks,
