Forest Bathing and Mindfulness in Nature Taster Session
About this event
Forest Bathing and Mindfulness in Nature are two approaches to taking a walk in nature, which aim to help us engage more fully with ourselves and our immediate surroundings. They are also very enjoyable!
We walk gently through the landscape, directing our attention either within our bodies, or to our senses. Our day -to -day cares are allowed to fall away, leaving us feeling refreshed and more able to deal with them when we return. This simple practice has been shown to be very beneficial for our health and well-being, allowing the sights, sounds, smells and touch of nature to relax and inspire us.
This FREE taster session, aims to give you an experience of this state of mind, and some tools to take away with you, so that you can go out and practice anytime, anywhere.
Age 18+
75 minutes long
In natural woodland, with unmade paths and uneven surfaces
The sessions are free – we welcome donations to Severn Gorge Countryside Trust, an environmental charity that manages the living landscape of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.
This is not a hike – the pace is slow and the level of fitness required is similar to a 60 minute visit to a supermarket.
