We know many of you lead busy lives and can't always join one of our longer programmes so we are offering this CALM AND CONNECT, Nature Day' as a way to escape from it all and come on a 'mini away' day in the woods! This session will focus on the therapeutic benefits of nature, where we will learn about meditation in nature, forest bathing, mindful walking and solo activities to inspire the mind. Encompassing a vitalising 'tea' which we will make from the wild plants and a nature craft activity where you will make a memento to take home. 10am: Arrive and Welcome, a mindful walk into the woods. Grounding (this is like a guided meditation, to help you 'arrive' and let your other life go for the day). Movement: a guided movement or nature themed game Make a fire: techniques and building Forage: discover what is available this season, gather plants for tea! Make an infusion from the plants we have picked, learn what each plant/herb can benefit you. Have with a nourishing snack (provided) Sit spot: Find a space in the woods that you can just ‘be’. Lunch: Bring a packed lunch with you. Create: after lunch we have a guided making session with natural materials, to let your creative juices flow! 4pm: session comes to an end. This is our core routine for the 'Calm and Connect Nature Day'. You can expect to leave a day with us feeling refreshed, having learned about our wild flora and fauna and what you can (or can’t) eat, what you can pick in the wild to make ‘tea’, how to make fire and make something from the wild (such as a spoon, string, dye, paint, pottery etc).
