nature connection for wellbeing workshop

Rewild your life, reconnect with the Earth, reawaken your inner hunter-gatherer.

Celebrated author of books on earth wisdom and nature connection, Glennie Kindred, will be hosting this live workshop with Lea Kendall, nature therapist and mindfulness in the woods practitioner. Together they will share a range of practical skills and techniques you can use in your own life to foster a deeper connection to the natural world.

For so many people nature has been their saviour in these difficult times. We have really woken up to the idea that our own health and wellbeing is intrinsically linked to the health of the planet, to the environments we surround ourselves in.

Being close to nature, just feels good, we instinctively know this. However, the science is now unquestionably there to back this feeling up. Studies have shown that spending time in woodland settings reduces stress, lowers anxiety, increases productivity, concentration and creative skills.

If we learn to combine quality time in nature with practising skills such as mindfulness, woodcraft, foraging, journaling and identifying wild plants, the mental and physical health benefits we receive can go far beyond what you’d get from just a walk in the woods.

 

YOUR WORKSHOP INCLUDES:

* Techniques to Practise Mindfulness in Nature

* The Benefits of Following the Seasonal Cycle of the Sun

* Celebrating the 8 Celtic Earth Festivals

* Forest Bathing; What Is It? Why Is It Good For Us?

* How To Increase Your Awareness of the Lunar Cycle

* Keeping a Moon Journal

* Using Bushcraft to Reawaken Our Inner Hunter-Gatherer

* The Power of Trees to Create Deep-Time Connection

* Q&A Session; Put Your Questions to Glennie & Lea

 

OUR ONLINE WORKSHOPS

After the huge success of our monthly online foraging workshops during lockdown everyone has asked us to host a special event focusing on nature connection techniques, so we’re doing just that.

Everyone has loved our online workshops so far and they’ve been really popular, so grab your place whilst you can.

The workshop will last one and a half hours and will be hosted via Zoom. Once you book into the workshop then you will receive an email from Zoom with details of how to access the webinar.

HOW TO BOOK

Tickets cost just £11, this is not per person though, only per household. So feel free to cram as many family members around the screen as you can 🙂

Once you have your ticket, we will follow up with an email for you to register for the Zoom meeting, following which you will receive the Zoom meeting link and entry password. So, look out for that.

If you cannot make the workshop on the night, we can send you a recording of it afterwards.

Please note, tickets are non-refundable.

Your Guides:  Glennie Kindred & Lea Kendall

Glennie Kindred “I am an artist and a writer, and it is my good fortune to have twelve books currently published, all of which include my artwork. My books are practical and inspire the reader to self-empowerment. They explore the wild edges of our relationship with the Earth through our native plants and trees, tree lore, herbalism, Earth wisdom, alchemy, celebrating the Earth’s cycles and creating heartfelt ceremony. I am also the editor and co-creator of the yearly publication, the Earth Pathways diary.”

“My aim for my workshops is to create a loving, safe, supportive, inclusive community from which we can explore ourselves and our relationship with the Earth. The biggest evolutionary shift we are called to make at this time is one of seeing ourselves as holistic human beings; part of the Earth, not separate from her.”
