The next time you’re out on a bushwalk or in the local park, you may meet some native (or not so native) animals. I always find meeting the local fauna thrilling, and somewhat mysterious. I find the best practice is to sit still, and motionless, and wait for nature to fall in around you. The birds, insects, and even perhaps larger animals, may come closer. Sit for at least 20 minutes. Hear the song of the trees, the voices of the insects, the caress of the wind … don’t categorise, or name, just be with whatever comes along.
