Free Wellbeing Session

This SatA picture containing tree, ground, outdoor, forestDescription automatically generatedurday (17th July), it is looking like the county of Leicestershire will be bathed in glorious sunshine, so why not escape the direct heat and immerse yourself in the beauty of our local National Forest in the morning, re-connect with nature and find calm through a variety of fun and engaging activities. This type of activity is often called ‘forest bathing’ but has nothing to do with swimming costumes or getting wet (though we may be near some small streams) – it is a term used to describe a practice developed firstly in Japan in the 1980s, where time was prescribed in nature to help reduce stress, anxiety and blood pressure.

We offered our first session on the 19th June and received some wonderful feedback from those who attended. 

 

Maybe you, or someone you know may benefit from this – it could particularly benefit those who have been shielding, or worried about venturing out over this last year,  as we hope to offer a safe space to enjoy the beauty of our local surroundings and feel more confident about getting back out.   The session is run by Wild Minds, who have many years of experience in running these groups https://wildmindsnature.co.uk/about.

The session is free and runs this Saturday at 10am for a couple of hours at the beautiful Feanedock Covert near Moira.  Further details can be found at: https://hospicehope.org.uk/local-news/latest-news/workshops-in-nature.php
