How do we practice holistic landscape restoration not only in our work but also in our heads and hearts?
Reflection is key in a landscape restoration process. Reflection allows us to look back at the (recent or distant) past, and learn from it. Reflection can also help to ‘zoom in’ to the personal level, and ‘zoom out’ to see the full landscape. This ‘zooming in’ and ‘zooming out’ is a key aspect in a landscape approach.
While many people are aware of this, it is sometimes hard to dig out the time for reflection in our busy lives. In this Community of Practice session, we’d like to create this space for you: a little ‘pause’ button in the middle of your week.
We’ll be making use of Theory U journalling questions combined with key 4 Returns questions, to guide you through a reflection process. This will include reflections on your landscape as a whole, as well as your personal role in the landscape and your personal leadership journey. There will also be the opportunity to share reflections.
Note: this session will be optimally enjoyed from a peaceful and natural environment which is different than your usual work place. So if you have the means to do so, we invite you to take your phone, pen, and notebook with you into a natural spot accessible to you and join in from there!
We hope you come press the pause button with us!
