Join us this Autumn for wellbeing sessions in a tranquil, ancient woodland and 4 sessions of Mindfulness with Nature Connection on Zoom

October 20th – November 24th

Free wellbeing sessions

We’ve been awarded lottery funding to run weekly Wellbeing Wednesday sessions during October and November to boost the wellbeing of both woodland and people. Open to anyone in the community it’s an opportunity to join in with Autumnal activities to boost biodiversity, such as planting out Oak trees grown from acorns gathered in the woodland.

Scientific research has shown that spending just 2 hours a week engaging with nature connection activities is enough to provide a significant wellbeing boost, helping people feel more positive,  motivated and optimistic about life in general. Just being with other people, socially distanced of course, can foster feeling of belonging and build self-esteem. Making time for a bit of gentle socialising, pottering about the woodland, enjoying the delights that Autumn delivers to the senses, is a pretty enjoyable way to spend some time.

Come and join us between 9.30 and 12.00 on Wednesday mornings, starting 20th October.  Just complete this form and wel’ll be in touch for a quick chat to answer any questions.

“It is very rare for me to be able to relax and feel calm while we are out, but today I felt just that – it was so good for the soul and engaging with the activities on offer was very therapeutic”.

“Excellent experience, I felt very relaxed and able to spend more quality time with my children. I totally forgot about daily struggles and worries” .

“There was something about today that made for pure happiness. The smell of the wild garlic. The smokey fire. Sunshine unexpectedly and the company of kind, interested friendly people”.

A Message From

Susan Collini

I’m the person who presents the Mindfulness sessons on Zoom and leads the woodland wellbeing sessions, whether for adults, children or families. Whether online or in the woodland I’m passionate about encouraging people to connect more deeply with nature and themselves.

As an accredited Mindfulness Teacher I fuse my practitioner skills and passion for nature connection, utilising aspects of both as a force to soothe furrowed brows and help people reconnect with smiling from the inside.

As well as delivering wellbeing sessions at the woodland I also deliver mindfulness and nature connection sessions online. These work really well and suit people who either live too far away, don’t have transport or who feel they would rather connect with nature from the comfort of their home environment (and, yes you can connect with nature online – very effectively!)

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.
