“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”.

From January 26th onwards

Wellbeing with nature sessions

These are open to anyone in the community, an opportunity to join in with activities to boost biodiversity in a beautiful ancient 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 nature 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.  Just complete this form and wel’ll be in touch for a quick chat to answer any questions.

A Message From

Susan Collini

I’m the person who presents the Mindfulness sessons on Zoom and leads the woodland wellbeing sessions for adults and children. I work with a team of Outdoor Tribe volunteers who all have undergone enhanced DBS checks.  

Outdoor Tribe’s objectives, whether delivering nature connection sessions in the woodland or online, is to encourasge people to connect more deeply with nature and themselves.

I’m a qualified Mindfulness Teacher, Forest School Leader, Social Forester and also an accredited Solutions Focussed Therapist and fuse my professional and personal learning to  support individuals along their own welleing learning pathway.

Whether the starting point for people is preferred to be actually ‘in nature’ or online, it makes no difference really. So, why not get in touch and explore the possibilities that exist to gently start planning your own wellbeing journey.

We look forward very much to meeting you.

 

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.
