A Simple Lesson in Experiencing Nature.
Simpson, Steven
Journal of Experiential Education, v22 n3 p118-22 Dec 1999
Experiential education considers nature a classroom, but nature is also the teacher. Quiet watching and walking meditation are two exercises informed by Taoism, that when added to the normal experiential education fare, help students encounter nature with an open mind. An outdoor university course that incorporates the sentiments of seeing nature with an untrammeled mind is described. (TD)
