With today’s hectic and technologically connected life it becomes all the more important to be able to step out of the busyness of everyday life and to experience the nuances of the natural world at a slower pace. It’s all about stopping, reconnecting and re-calibrating that hidden internal compass that we each have within us.
There is a natural affinity between natural surroundings and mindfulness; the opportunity to connect to the sensory richness that nature offers us. Through experiencing this contact with nature we can inhabit our bodies more consciously and also feel connected to something larger than ourselves.
The joining of mindfulness and the outdoors also brings together two key areas of Martin’s professional training and personal interest; combining 20 years experience of working with groups in the outdoors with the rich possibilities that mindfulness offers.
