Nature offers us the core conditions of a primary caregiver and is a significant other in our lives.
“Nature offers us the core conditions of a primary caregiver and is a significant other in our lives. There is a trauma in being disconnected from her as a source of positive attachment and as a secure base. Many Black and Asian people have been disenfranchised from nature through human interference. In the UK context experiences of racism have created barriers for some, to feeling safe in nature, cutting us off from a source of physiological, emotional, spiritual embodied support.
Black and Asian people are more likely to live in urban areas with a deficiency of access to nature, without a buffer to the stresses of urban life.” - Beth Collier
This workshop considers the role nature has played in supporting well-being during the coronavirus outbreak and the racial reckoning. We’ll explore racial disparities in accessing nature including themes of loss, trauma, repair and healing, as well as the therapeutic benefits of nature and how this can be brought into client work.
