Wellbeing for adults. Tailored for carers, people who are isolated, at risk of mental health problems, and anyone in need of a break from busy lives. We believe the power of nature can transform states of mind. Our Nature Nurture sessions will help to create a connection with the natural world through outdoor activities that stimulate, refresh and invigorate the senses. Building and cooking on a fire, identifying trees and wildlife, creating natural art, craft making, toolwork, shelter building, and being part of the ever changing and inspiring beauty of nature will give you new perspective. Book through the Wellbeing College
Mindfulness in the Woods
Mindfulness is a way of being, and a way of paying attention to each moment, in a non-judgmental way. Once we start to turn our conscious attention mindfully to our body, breath, thoughts, feelings, and the world around us, we find that our relationship to our experience of life changes fundamentally. Participating in outdoor, nature-focussed and woodland activities opens our feelings and emotions to the earth and nature while creating a narrative of self care, patience, understanding and compassion. Mindfulness meditation provides a tool to deepen this effect. Vital ongoing support is provided through an app, website content and handouts.
We hold Wild Drumming events for adults in summer and autumn evenings. A highly experienced and inspirational drummer who has worked with many well known West African drummers brings her djembes and dununs to the trees! The deer peek through at our fireside gathering as we share a drink and snack inbetween playing intricate and beautiful rhythms that take no time to learn.
There are no Wild drumming events planned at the moment but contact us if you would like to be put on our mailing list, or if you would like us to bring fireside Wild Drumming to your setting.
Take a break from the office or your usual workplace and let your team feel the benefits of fresh air, light and natural beauty. Using hand tools make wooden crafts such as mallets, cook on a fire, create a natural art installation in the woods, build a shelter or undertake woodland management tasks. You will come together as a team in a way you never have before, and leave feeling that you have been on a mini break!
Please contact us if you are interested in a team day with EcoWild.
EcoWild offers respite days for groups which may include cooking lunch together on a fire, a range of natural art and crafts, the use of hand tools, wildlife identification and tracking, shelter building, foraging and of course boiling the kelly kettle for a fresh air cuppa or two.
