Sensing & Reading Landscapes
Exclusive Walkshops for Groups (2 – 6 participants)
Sebatian Burch shares a sensitive and communicative view of landscapes. Rooted in a personal and intimate relationship with the Earth. He (re)searches landscapes as if they where books, that tell the story of “how and why” places and communities came to be.
I like to think of landscapes as if they were books, not just any book, but the most amazing story my senses can read. In the landscape story, I read the history of the earth, a story that takes me beyond my own conscience as a human being. Each word of the landscape-story is a different species, a living being who expresses its freedom with coherence. All the elements of a landscape have personality and tell a story.
A landscape contains “patterns of form, structure, materials, formation and function” is “pragmatic, poetic, rhetorical, polemical” and can be “spoken, written, read or imagined”, but mostly lived, since landscapes reflects our “soul of the world” through our perceptions and actions on it.

Sebastian Burch MSc (Hons) Since a young age Sebastian has loved the natural world and this led him to start a degree in Biology at Oviedo University. Disillusioned with mechanistic and reductionist science, he then did a Masters in Holistic Science at Schumacher College. He is now engaged in holistic research concerned with landscape feelings, and is very interested in Transformative Ecology and social ecological transformation.
We sense the landscape and the landscape senses us, what are we sharing?
When landscapes are felt the same way as friends do, a place is created for us, a friendship with the environment, enjoyment of each others company and free expression of each others feelings.
