Mindful Walking in Nature
20 June at 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree – £5
Join us as we go for a gentle walk around the beautiful Gordon Castle Estate. We’ll stop off along the way for some mindful moments and learn about the importance of regular nature connection practice.
Walking as part of a small group brings many benefits to physical, mental and social health. These benefits are deepened when it is possible to walk in greenspace where the beauty of nature and its seasonal shifts can be experienced first-hand and appreciated. We are delighted to host this walk amidst the pretty woodland and by the lochside on the Gordon Castle Estate.
As we move along the trail, we’ll introduce you to some mindful walking in nature activities where you will be encouraged to tune into your senses, allowing your attention to be drawn by both the small details and big moments around you. You will be welcome to share your observations if you feel comfortable doing so. The impact of such practice on your well-being will be discussed using the latest scientific research on nature connectedness and we’ll leave you with some ideas on how to hone this for yourself in your own time.
