Mindfulness -Contact in Nature
Today saw the final week of an eight week Mindfulness course, a course with a twist, we brought the class room outside. Actually into Whitby Park in Ellesmere Port, A lovely location with many different areas to explore and to be mindful in. There was a room we could use however I would say we were at least 80% outside in the cool air, but today the sun shone, birds sang and the various parts of nature became alive.
Course feedback so far has all been positive, with increase in sleep, feeling calmer more in the moment, less stressed and a better awareness of nature on our doorstep.
The course was organised through Mersey Forest, John Moores University and sponsored by 'The Big Lottery Fund'
A big thank you to Emilia and Suzanne who have organised this brilliant event. Oh I nearly forgot the girls and boys in the cafe who supplied the warm drinks that went down a treat.
The next course has been organised at the Ainsdale Nature reserve starting in early June.
We are hoping to run another course at Whitby Park, Ellesmere Port in September, if this is something that interest you, please drop me an email.
