  1. Painting Deep Time: Encountering Landforms’ Alterity and Phusis Through Phenomenology and Oil Painting.Tanya J. Behrisch - 2021 - Phenomenology and Practice 16 (1).
    The practice of oil painting landforms, rocks and sea water in Jervis Inlet, British Columbia puts me in dialogue with land’s resistant alterity. By closely attuning to landforms, and by stepping back and blurring my focus at regular intervals while practicing oil painting of landforms, I experience phusis of land and of my painting. Through self-concealment and emergence, land alternates between revealing and enfolding its character, resisting my human comprehension but speaking to more-than-human elements in myself. The slow accretive process (...)

    Experiences of the Outdoors.Andrew Foran - 2021 - Phenomenology and Practice 16 (1).
    For many teachers, the value of pedagogical reflection is missing from practice. Rational educational approaches that prioritize judging and measuring students overshadow the relational dimension of teaching. Our study investigated this relational gap to explore more fully teachers’ attunement to the child as a unique person. We examined lived experiences of six teachers pedagogically engaged with children participating in an active outdoor living program. The program aimed to develop a youth network of friends, nurturing positive self-esteem and youth leadership. Using (...)

    Language-Ing the Earth: Experiential Renewal for a Relationally Sensitive Environmentalism.Patrick Howard - 2021 - Phenomenology and Practice 16 (1).
    This paper investigates human relationship with the larger living landscape that is grounded in experiential renewal. Phenomenology is antithesis to the process of abstraction and objectification through which the world as we experience it is diminished by conceptualization and categorization. Recent studies to understand the natural world as a hermeneutic text offers important reflections on the human mediation of the meaning of the more-than-human-world and assists in understanding the implications of our encounters with the world. Phenomenology, however, is unique in (...)

    Pre-Service Teachers in the Outdoors: A Phenomenological Exploration.Josie Melton - 2021 - Phenomenology and Practice 16 (1).
    While a child’s sense of wonder is thought to come naturally, less is known about how adults foster or connect with their sense of wonder. For the purposes of this exploration, wonder is the openness that comes when one dwells with the present moment, allowing questions to arise, rather than using wonder as a tool to answer a question. Spending time in the outdoors is a common way to engage wonder, but there may be differences in the ways adults experience (...)

  6. Being Outdoors: Lived Experience on the Franklin River.Marcus Morse & Sean Blenkinsop - 2021 - Phenomenology and Practice 16 (1).
    Being outdoors can provide experiential possibilities not readily available indoors. In this paper we draw on phenomenological research undertaken with participants on 10-day outdoor Franklin River journeys in Tasmania, Australia, to illustrate such possibilities. By exploring multiple aspects and variations of participant lived experience outdoors we focus, in particular, on the potential ontological implications of these experiences. We detail three key findings that emerged from participant descriptions: i) a feeling of humility, ii) being alive to the present, and iii) paradox (...)

  7. Experiential Intensity of Exploring Place Abandoned.Kevin Redmond - 2021 - Phenomenology and Practice 16 (1).
    There is a growing global shift towards urbanization resulting in diminishing connections with the traditional rural placescape. Newfoundland and Labrador has a long history of out-migration and internal migration between communities in coastal areas within the province. Resettlement programs initiated by the NL government between 1954 and 1975 accounted for the internal migration of approximately 30,000 people from 300 communities. Modern-day encounters with these abandoned communities are relevant to understanding the loss of place and home, as significant numbers of students (...)
