Walking the Night

School of the Wild

7pm - 10pm, Weds 14 November

meet at Brighton railway station

Join School of the Wild for a silent nighttime journey across gorgeous Sussex countryside on this guided night walk, ahead of Meaning.

This is pretty special and a chance to experience the land at night, walking in the dark without torches as part of a group, in a safe and supported way.

By walking the land mindfully you may drop into a quiet inner space of reflection before the conference.

This will allow you to have a direct sensory experience and connection with nature: the tastes and smells in the air, the feel of the wind as it caresses your skin, the touch of the ground under your feet as you walk.

The walk will be predominantly silent to allow the burble and chatter of daylight hours to subside. The mysteries, sounds and smells of the night and the land will draw you closer.

The darkness has long been a feared space and in embracing it in this way you open yourself up to the possibility of befriending the night.

The walk will be loosely structured, with time for some sitting reflection, and at a gentle walking pace, to allow your senses to fully expand into the possibilities offered by moving across and being with the land at night.

This guided night walk will be led by Caroline Whiteman, and includes a fire and hot drinks at the end.
