Peripheral Vision: Discovering how to use wide-angle vision to observe wild life. Night Hunters: We will play this fun nature awareness game ‘Night Hunters’ so you and your child can picture yourselves being a wild animal stalking its prey. Fox the Fox: One of o...
“Thankyou for the Animal Wisdom course last Sunday. Michael and I really enjoyed it... My favourite bits were the Fox walk and peripheral vision exercises and the Sit Spot...
