    Good Nature: The pleasure of gardening

    There are always flowers for those who want to see them. – Henri Matisse. 
     
    In this final instalment of Good Nature, we follow two different organisations striving to reconnect people with the land.


    Introducing GROW and Mindfood. Two groups which through gardening and growing harness the expansive power of nature. Whether it's a holistic approach to education, or a restorative guide to healing, this episode demonstrates the importance of having a hands-on relationship with the earth.

    Good Nature: The pleasure of ritual

    Be it communal, spiritual or physical, the word 'ritual' means different things to different people.
     
    Join us as we explore how rituals can bring us closer to nature, listening to the community of Padstow as they celebrate the coming of summer, explore rites of self-love with artist, witch and environmentalist Ayesha Tan Jones and plunge into the cold waters of West Wales with wild swimmers The Bluetits.

    The pleasure of sound: Aisha Carrington

    The pleasure of sound: Aisha Carrington

    When Aisha Carrington changed careers from personal stylist to sound healer, it became a way for her to overcome some of the mental health issues she faced at the time - using meditation as medicine. In this experience we want you to do the same; sit down in a nice space, close your eyes, and let the soft vibrations of Aisha’s singing bowls guide you into a deep state of relaxation.

    The pleasure of sound: Joe Patitucci

    The pleasure of sound: Joe Patitucci

    For Joe Patitucci, the idea of PlantWave – a device that translates plant data into music – was a way of connecting even more deeply to the feeling of being in nature. Despite its humble origins as a re-purposed lie detector, it has since become a unique tool for composers and wellness practitioners alike. In this audio experience, we encourage you to listen to what plants have to say, as we hear Joe’s story and his composition using PlantWave on four different plants.

    The pleasure of sound: Zethu Maseko

    The pleasure of sound: Zethu Maseko

    For Zethu Maseko, a sound, short film and textile artist based in London, sound can be a tool to learn about our past, build our own identities as well as understand futures and imagined futures for ourselves. Her piece Kuphiliswa (which means ‘healing’ in Zulu), is a sound piece written on the Mbira, a pre-colonial, Stone Age instrument she uses to highlight how ancient tools can be used in a contemporary context for healing, storytelling and as a point of conversation.
