Opening Heart and Spirit Through Nature
Flow Learning makes it clear that to be truly educated we need to wholeheartedly embrace Nature consciousness in our lives. I highly recommend this book to all educators and students of life.

In his newest release, Flow Learning®, Joseph Bharat Cornell shares a transformative learning process that empowers participants to awaken their higher human qualities through direct experiences in nature. Flow Learning provides the essential ingredients for true learning, as well as a recipe for the inner transformation that every educator strives to bring their students.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, education and the classroom settings are undergoing dramatic changes. Flow Learning helps us utilize the one thing accessible to each of us: nature. This book offers living examples, activities, and points of reflection to help the reader understand how to use these concepts for best effect—whether you’re a parent, teacher, group facilitator, or nature enthusiast.
Cornell’s Sharing Nature® books have “sparked a worldwide revolution in nature education,” and have been published in twenty-seven languages and sold over a million copies. After the success of his award-winning books Sharing Nature and Deep Nature Play, Flow Learning completes his earlier works with an in-depth teaching system that awakens us to our higher potential by experiencing the joy of being in nature.
Awaken Enthusiasm games make learning fun, instructive, and experiential-and establish a rapport between teacher, student, and subject.
