Elementor #2480

Hello, and WELCOME to this website!

My name is Chris Holland and I am a storyteller, nature connection facilitator and didgeridoo player.

I help develop your connection to nature – your own and to the earth we live on – so that we can serve humanity and nature for our greater good – through events, workshops, team building, forest school, my book and online digital resources to educators and parents.

  • Some of the benefits of the re-connecting with nature work I do include:

    • improved physical health, agility and mental wellbeing

    • increased self-esteem and self-reliance

    • learn new craft skills, attitudes and native intelligence

    • gain an understanding of the complex web of life

    • a developed connection to self, others and nature

    • increased empathy, passion & common sense

    • find things to eat in the wild &come into harmony with your being

    • feel at home, find your natural voice and talents 

    • remember we are all part of the land, no better or worse than anything else we share the planet with…

    This is a 2min rant for The Wildlife trusts about barriers to outdoor learning and one of my solutions!

    I am an environmental educator, author, forager, a playful trainer, storyteller and keynote speaker, didgeridoo player, bushcraft teacher, wild swimmer, forest school leader, barefoot walker and land artist…and also a family man with a wife and three children, tow of them now adults.

    Since 2001 I have been making a living from reminding people that we are part of the land, the nature we live among.

    I published my first book, I LOVE MY WORLD in 2009 and devised THE NATURAL MUSICIANS system in 2012.

     So what do I do? 

    I cultivate the connections people have with nature, each other and themselves.

    I am also passionate about helping teachers take learning outside and making it playful and “edge stretching”.

    I take classes of children outdoors, train and mentor teachers in nature connection and natural flow learning.

    I run a wild school for home educating families.

    I run bushcraft and outdoor play camps for families, away days and team building for corporate groups, lead foraging events and stag do’s.

    I tell stories and play music round camp fires, enjoy sneaking games, teaching skills and crafts in the woods.

    I have also written and self-published a best selling nature connection guidebook that is considered “a must for all” by Children’s laureate Michael Morpurgo. It has sold over 7000 copies!

    I try to get the right balance between work, family time and personal time.

    I love it when someone lights up as they experience something wonderful. Birdsong lifts my heart and widens my perception.

    I am grateful when morning sun warms my skin and for the many gifts a day brings.

    All the best,
