Deepen your connection with nature for improved emotional well-being.
- Online via zoom
This journey takes place on zoom over 6 sessions and is perfect for anyone interested in discovering ways to enhance their emotional well-being and mental health through deeper nature connection. A great introduction for anyone new to this kind of thing, though past courses have also proved popular with forest school teachers, holistic health practitioners and experienced forest bathing /nature connection guides. Week 1: Introduction to the different ways people interact with nature, exploring the place of Natural Mindfulness & Forest Bathing and introducing the idea of Nature Consciousness. Week 2: Feeling into stillness and presence - working with nature to explore your relationship to stillness and discover ways to bring peace to a busy mind. Week 3: Awakening the senses - the role our senses play in supporting our well-being and how they deepen your relationship with the natural world. Week 4: Beyond the senses - exploring senses beyond the 5 common physical senses of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell. Week 5: How can we find meaning in nature, exploring metaphor, folklore, stories and nature based spirituality. Week 6: Looking at cycles and rhythms, building your own personal forest bathing experience and considering ways to live more harmoniously in tune with nature's principles. Each week will follow a flowing format containing: - Topic tutorial & poem - Guided nature connection meditation - Invitations to connect with nature in your own time - Opportunity to share your experiences, feelings and reflections Testimonials “it was transformational. Tina has a wonderfully nurturing way of ensuring all group members are held and heard. I have taken what I learnt from Tina and others in the group and incorporated much of it into my daily life. I can thoroughly recommend Cultivating Connections to anyone who is looking to learn more and who wants to experience first hand the improvement in wellbeing which comes from being truly connected with nature. Thanks so much Tina " ~ Lindy Wheeler – Author of The Human Toolbox, Counsellor & Supervisor
