Recent reviews of research shows that practising mindfulness outdoors in nature may lead to even more positive gains for us.

Being in nature with mindfulness:

  • boosts our immune system
  • lifts moods and reduces stress, anxiety and irritability
  • lowers blood pressure
  • improves concentration
  • helps us to sleep better
  • strengthens mind-body-heart connection
  • reduces our habit of mind-wandering
  • allows us to remain in the present rather than losing concentration or becoming overwhelmed by emotion
  • increases clarity of mind, creativity and flexibility of thinking
  • improves emotional stability
  • increases our sense of purpose, space and perspective
  • allow us to more effectively connect with nature.

Take a Sunday morning and enjoy some mindful walking in the forest, savouring with the senses all the hidden gems it has to offer our hearts and minds. We will also practice some gentle mindful movement on the forest floor, in a large co-vid safe circle and take some time to engage in reflective nature-based activities, to help us to remember what really matters to us these days. Leave feeling connected, energised and restored and ready to live in harmony in nature wherever we find ourselves.

Mindfulness Outdoors Experiences will carry on in all weathers, excepting those.considered to pose an adverse risk, such as high winds or thunderstorms or 'red alert'. In such an event the session will be rearranged. If the leader has to cancel due to illness or unforeseen circumstances then the session will be rearranged.

A relative degree of fitness and independence in mobility is required. You join these sessions at your own risk and take responsibility for your own care. We will ask that you complete a waiver form and give advance notice of any medical conditions and an emergency contact person. Suitable clothing, for the environment and the weather are really important. Guidelines will be suggested.

Refund policy:

Cancellations more than 1 week of event date can be refunded. Less than 1 week no refund is offered but you can be booked in to an alternative event date.
