IS IT FOR ME?
You already know that a simple thing like a walk on the beach can help you see things differently, relax and recharge. Now, more and more research is revealing how time in nature can help improve your mental and physical wellbeing, manage stress, increase focus and bring joy. These fun and gently challenging micro-adventures will give you new techniques and insights into the power of nature connection. You will find how slowing down in nature reveals new things about the world and about yourself. You do not have to be an outdoor person at all, but you may find that something is calling you to put that device down and come and just be for a while. You will come away refreshed and with a whole new repertoire of ways to “be in the bush”.
WHAT WILL WE DO?
Each day will be different depending on the delights of the area, the weather and the needs of who turns up. You will be gently guided through activities to open up your senses to nature and to reflect on your own nature; including walking, relaxation, tracking, eating and talking together, a mini solo time to yourself and lots of wandering, making, mooching and general mucking about. A delicious lunch and hot drinks are provided. Come on one or both.
WHO RUNS IT?
Your guide is Liana Stupples. She will help you feel relaxed and open to new experiences, and stick beside you as you challenge yourself.
