These sessions are open to members of the public on a sliding scale of pricing to try and keep our sessions affordable and inclusive. As a non-profit organisation we strive to offer a few funded spaces for people who would really benefit from nature connection but may not be able to afford to. Attending and paying full price for a session means we can continue to fund our work and help make nature connection for well-being more mainstream for healthcare in Cornwall.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I was looking for a deeper connections with nature, and the course provided for this both in giving me practices for self discovery and connection, which was nourishing, enlightening and at times profound. This course was very giving and I am sure it will support me in many ways for the rest of this life.
It completely surpassed my expectations. I had hoped to learn more about practically and pyschologically connecting with nature. This fulfilled that and so much more. I gained value from the group peers, the experience and skill of the leaders and from the depth of wisdom and knowledge that went into creating such a rich and life-changing programme.
Taught me so much about nature, how the human race in general interacts with it and how individually it matters to me. Increased my gratitude towards life and opened my mind to other people's stories and lives. Everything was interesting and I think the most important thing it taught me was the huge health benefits, both mental and physical, nature has on me.
It was a good size group. The activities were varied and engaging. I learnt a lot from it! It was well led and structured, gave me a chance to take time out from things and focus on being in nature. Highly recommended!
