He is a father, community leader and mentor, and shiatsu practitioner. He has trained and taught internationally, and is involved in various ongoing programs supporting nature reconnection, rites of passage and community regeneration. My reasons for bringing Rob Fallon to Edinburgh I was lucky enough to live with Rob for a year and get to experience his integrity, humour and passion for life and people. I would see him come back after doing a weekend or a course and he was completely drained as he had give so much and held the space for people. I was fortunate for us to share skill, wisdom and laughter and deepen my understanding of deep ecology. I am grateful to call this man my brother in the truest sense and want others to have this opportunity as well Testimonials ''A day in nature with Rob will open your heart as well as your eyes to the wonders of nature.” - Robin Life ''What starts off as an overnight learning bush craft skills,.. transcended into a deeply profound and spiritual experience - connecting deeply with nature and allowing nature to connect up with us.
