Unlock the ancient skill of sensing direction from stars and plants. Forecast weather from woodland sounds. And predict the next action of an animal from its body language. Build your outdoor awareness and expert intuition by noticing certain patterns, signs and clues. This practical, outdoors walking workshop will help you to learn the keys to your ‘sixth sense’.
