Mindfulness of Nature

‘Bringing Our Awareness Back to Nature’

This is a 5 week course led in collaboration with the Wildlife Trust of Cambridgeshire at Trumpington Meadows Nature Reserve, Grantchester, Cambridge.

Love the natural world? Interested in well-being? Keen to explore how our well-being and that of the rest of the natural world are interlinked? Want to get to know Trumpington Meadows in Granchester more intimately this spring?

Join me for this 5 week course – in collaboration with the Wildlife Trust for Cambridgeshire to explore our relationship with the natural world and discover how being more mindful of nature can inspire us to bring forth a healthier, happier, more peaceful and sustainable world. 

The course includes 5 half-day sessions, 9am to 12pm, on the 18th May, 25th May, 1st June, 8th June, 15th June. The full course cost is £160. Details for bookings can be found below.

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”

John Burroughs

Our disconnection from nature within ourselves and around us is the root cause of so many of the physical, mental and global well-being issues we are facing in our modern world today. 

This programme, in collaboration with the Wildlife Trust, will combine mindfulness exercises, meditations, games, thought-provoking discussions and reflections exploring our relationship with the natural world as well as guided walks on the reserve (some by the Wildlife Trust who have an excellent knowledge of the reserve and its inhabitants). It will above all be a wonderful opportunity to experience the natural world together mindfully, with others.

“No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced”

Sir David Attenborough

Each of these half-day sessions will run from 9 am to 12 pm on each date with the programme of themes listed below:

Sat 18th May: We are nature: an innate bond
