I run Mindfulness/wellbeing sessions in a tranquil woodland setting in East Northants. providing a unique, private space for people to be able to relax both body and mind. Enjoying some ‘me time’ in a beautiful tranquil ancient woodland setting can boost a sense of wellbeing in itself.
Scientific research has demonstrated that nature immersion of just 2 hours at a time promotes measurable improvements in relaxation levels and emotional regulation. Spending time connecting with nature is both soothing and restorative.
These sessions are geared to help strengthen resilience and renew motivation for both personal and the global pandemic challenges we are all dealing with at the moment.
There’s much to learn from nature about overcoming setbacks, adapting to changing condietions and how to bounce back against all odds.
The only visitors to the woodland are those who are invited, together with the birds and animals who choose to make the woodland their home. This unspoilt and little-disturbed natural gem of a place is just the perfect place to experience being bathed in peace and tranquility, an aspect that attracts many comments from visitors.
Whatever the season and the weather, participants are guided to deepen their connection with nature through a variety of ways. Bushcraft activities, nature crafts, painting, drawing, photography, poetry and creative writing can be engaged with, if one particularly appeals.
For those who wish to explore Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing) and Mindfulness, there are opportunities to engage with one or both of these gentle and soothing ways to connect more deeply with nature.
When you connect more deeply with nature you find you can connect more deeply with yourself.
