 Man today walks thru the woods and countryside absorbed with the thoughts of modern times, walking with an agenda, and thereby missing 99% of the things that are around him. The diversity of wildlife with its myriad interactions happened before he got there and resumed after he left. This class introduces the student to the concept of Fox Walking and Wide Angle Vision, which will make you much more aware and sensitive to your surroundings. There will be exercises using the five elements of visual perception, as well as exercises using the other five senses.
