How we are operating during the Pandemic

We’ve been awarded funding from the National Lottery during the first 3 months of this year so that we can continue to provide pathways to wellbeing through provision of Mindfulness sessions online. Our grateful thanks to the Government for making this possible.

Emotional support during the Pandemic

Mindful pathways to wellbeing using nature connection

Experience of Mindfulness Practice

3 + 6 =

We’re running wellbeing sessions online for the time being, rather than at the woodland. We have funding for March to run Mindfulness sessions online to provide emotional support to people who are suffering through isolation, particularly those who live in a rural area. Sessions are led by Susan Collini who is an accredited Mindfulness Teacher

You can choose to attend a 30 minute Mindfulness session designed to deliver social connection in a safe place online and to encourage relaxation of  the body and soothing of the mind. As part of the sessions you will also be invited to engage with some nature connection activities you can use when out and about in your home environment.

There is much scientific evidence to prove that engaging with mindfulness can help people

  • Lower anxiety levels
  • Encourage positivity
  • Reduce irritability
  • Improve motivation and focus
  • Build resilience
  • Improve sleep

Because you’re so worth it…

Take time to nurture yourself

Attempting to stay strong and carry on during the Pandemic drains most of us emotionally, whether we admit it to ourselves or not.

It makes good wellbeing sense to take steps to boost your resilience, maximising coping strategies during these challenging times.

Engaging with some  gentle mindfulness helps quieten the mind and soothe the raw edges of emotions. The experience has been likened to immersion in a warm bath, reducing feelings of anxiety in the mind and physical tension held in the body.

“It’s been quite a revelation to me how powerful mindfulness can be. Each session has given me useful and practical exercises which genuinely help to relieve stress. With the added pressure of home schooling in these uncertain times my anxiety levels have been higher over the past month, but I can honestly say that I have felt much calmer after every session.”
Participant – January 2021

Why not give Mindfulness a try yourself with some free sessions on offer from Outdoor Tribe during February.

The sessions will be delivered via Zoom, which is easy to set up on your computer, tablet or phone. Full instructions will be provided if you don’t know how to install Zoom to run on your device.

More options for learning Mindfulness

Walk the wellbeing pathway of Mindfulness 

Mindfulness training is based around helping you to notice more about what’s happening ‘now’, rather than almost continually being caught up with thinking about what has happened in the past or maybe lies in the future. Learning to engage more with the present moment can be a life-changer for adults and children, helping reduce anxiety and stress levels that can cause so much suffering, consciously and unconsciously.

Dip your toe into the warm water pool of Mindfulness with a 2, 4 or 8 week course that, at present, are delivered remotely.

A Message From

Susan Collini

The wellbeing sessions I run at the woodland, whether for adults, children or families, are filled with Mindful moments as I encourage people to connect more with nature and themselves. As an accredited Mindfulness Teacher I bring my passion for nature connection as a healing force into much of my Mindfulness sessions. However, you don’t need to be in a woodland to experience wellbeing benefits, you can do so from home just as well with guidance and support to gain the insight and awareness you need.
