Other Information

Involves a short walk. Recommended for 14+

Nature Connection Workshop

Nature connection is amazing! It can reduce anxiety; ease stress; boost energy; improve attention and enhance creativity. It’s also a powerful spiritual practice that can catalyse feelings of awe, inspiration and a sense of connection to a greater whole. You’ll learn simple ways to re-connect with nature that you can use anytime. There are three keys to nature connection: slow down, be curious and use all your senses.

In this 90 minute workshop in Exeter’s beautiful Rougemont Gardens, we’ll be using mindfulness to slow down and exploring how sensory awareness can nurture curiosity.

Where to Meet

Meet at the bottom of the front steps of Exeter Phoenix, before a short walk to Rougemont Gardens.

10 persons maximum, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Access Information
