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.
Please contact martin if you have specific questions about either the weekend or day couses- which all aim to offer a range of basic mindfulness practices for all levels with a particular focus upon brining mindfulness into the outdoor setting.
Please see the Testimonial Pages for participants comments on the walking and wellbeing course autumn 2018.
Martin has been a qualified Mountain Leader for over a decade and holds current First Aid training for outdoor and mountain environments.
