Love the natural world? Interested in well-being? Keen to explore how our well-being and that of the rest of the natural world are interlinked? Want to get to know Trumpington Meadows in Granchester more intimately this spring?

Join me for a full 5 week course – in collaboration with the Wildlife Trust for Cambridgeshire to explore our relationship with the natural world and discover how being more mindful of nature can inspire us to bring forth a healthier, happier, more peaceful and sustainable world. 

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”

JOHN BURROUGHS

Our disconnection from nature within ourselves and around us is the root cause of so many of the physical, mental and global well-being issues we are facing in our modern world today.

This programme, in collaboration with the Wildlife Trust, will combine mindfulness exercises, meditations, games, thought-provoking discussions and reflections exploring our relationship with the natural world as well as guided walks on the reserve (some by the Wildlife Trust who have an excellent knowledge of the reserve and its inhabitants). It will above all be a wonderful opportunity to experience the natural world together mindfully, with others.

“No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced”
