DEEP NATURE PLAY
A Guide to Wholeness, Aliveness, Creativity, and Inspired Learning

Let Joseph Cornell, one of the world's most popular nature teachers, empower you with the tools to maximise play and transform it from mere entertainment into a doorway to enhanced living, creativity and concentration.

When absorbed in deep play our sensory awareness is heightened, we become immersed in the present moment and feel intensely alert and alive. Because play is fun and rewarding, we operate at the peak of our mental and physical capacity.

Animals love to play. Crows will slide on their backs on a steep snowy slope, then fly to the top to slide down again. Bison will repeatedly sprint onto a frozen lake, then bellow gleefully as they skid across the ice. Brown bear cubs who play the most, Alaskan scientists have found, live the longest.

Why is play behaviour so prevalent in the animal kingdom? Through play, animals explore their world and discover all its possibilities. In higher animals, play stimulates the brain, enhances cognitive function and adaptability and strengthens social bonds. Beyond these biological and social explanations, scientists are starting to believe that play is a means by which animals can express their joy of life.

Play energises and enlivens people's experience of nature. How does deep nature play differ from regular play? Deep play incorporates greater absorption with the object of play – so deep nature play brings us closer to the natural world.
