Why Mindful Nature Walk?
Especially in these days it is important that we connect to nature and to ourselves. We can slow down and find nourishment in the simplicity of being in the moment. We can:
? listen to the sound of the birds,
? feel the breeze on the skin,
? listen to the forest and to whatever it has to offer for each of us
? and to take time to be with our own hearts.

Don’t be put off by the weather. We walk in all weathers and seasons. Rainy days can be just as interesting and insightful as sunny days – as long as you are wearing appropriate clothing.
Footwear: It is advisable to bring walking boots or other sturdy footwear.
Clothing: The temperature and conditions during a walk can change quickly and so appropriate layers of clothing are recommended based on local forecasts.
Water: It is important to remain hydrated during the walk so bring some water, but remember we will be walking in nature and so there will be no public toilets along the route.
