On our recent field trip to Eastwoods park, we introduced and practiced sit spot. Sit spot is a core routine from coyote mentoring. The idea is to find a special place in nature, sit still and have a quiet mind. Here the space becomes personal, where they get to hear and see the diversity of life around them. They get to see the landscape change with each season, see plants and insects up close, and find nature as their home.
After our sit spot time we all shared our experiences. Each of us were within 50ft of each other and we all saw different things! Then we went back to our spot and made a few sketches in our nature notebooks to record our experience.
