4 & 8 week courses

Learn how to re-energise your experience of life using gentle nature connection exercises that can be engaged with in a beautiful, ancient woodland in East Northants or, if that is not possible, from your own home. 

Both the 4 and 8 week courses are suitable for complete beginners, as well as those with some previous experience of nature connection activities and/or mindfulness.

Normally these courses would run face2face in a tranquil, ancient woodland in East Northants. However, if Pandemic restrictions make face2face meetings impossible it is still possible to carry out the sessions in the comfort of your own home environment, taking the practices into the garden, local park or anywhere in nature you can access.

Course content

Each session will focus on a particular aspect of nature connection, including foraging, habitat management, fire making, nature-based mind focussing activities, land art and greenwood crafts. All session content, including fire making, can be carried out in your home environment if you cannot attend the woodland-based sessions.

There will also be access to onine resources provided for further support and guidance to broaden your understanding of how cultivating reghular nature connection habits can benefit your phyysical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Relax

Enjoy some quality ‘Me Time’ engaging with gentle nature connection methods to promote wellbeing benefits.  Ideally, the sessions will run at a tanquil, ancient woodland, but can be engaged with from the comfort of your own home. Did you know you can benefit from nature connection from your own armchair?

Revive

The aim of these sessions is to revive you physically, mentally and emotionally through reducing stress or anxiety levels, blood pressure and/or feelings of fatigue and lack of motivation. 

Reboot

This course will reconnect you to the natural world which will, in turn, help restore your equilibrium. A nature-based reboot designed to help you get you to where you need to be mentally and emotionally; ‘normal service’ resumed.

Soothe your mind

Connecting with nature provides many opportunities for quietening the mind, providing a break from negative and unhelpful thoughts and emotions affecting our daily quality of life.

Relax your body

Regular nature connection helps people to tune-in more easily to a tranquilility that relaxes the body, without conscious effort. 

Revive your spirits

Let nature reset your emotional landscape, helping build resilience and allowing new life-enhancing motivations to develop and flow.
