Have you ever been on a long walk and slowly felt your attention shift to the sounds of insects and birds, the scent of flowers, the sight of leaves rustling in a breeze, as the chatter of your mind comes to a standstill? Imagine living in that same gentle attunement to your local environment for ten days, a month, or even a year. Land in Curiosity facilitates year-long walks through the UK and Sweden, where the world becomes a “nomadic nature classroom”. Walking seven miles a day, with breaks for reflection, participants learn to recognize patterns in nature, find and walk to their own rhythms, connect deeply with others on the journey, and immerse themselves fully in the places they encounter. Note that while it is not currently active, the project still provides inspiration and direction to other communities. Visit their website to learn more about their past walks and other projects.
