This essay outlines a place-based pedagogic method called Narrative Journey, developed by the author in his work at the Eden Project, United Kingdom. The essay describes the method in the context of children’s play and experiential learning in outdoor natural environments, and uses a critical and reflexive lens to describe praxis across two broad themes: story and mimesis, and story, place, and space. It also provides practical, theory-linked examples before concluding that Narrative Journey praxis can add support to children’s emotional connectedness to nature and outdoor experiential learning.
