Mindfulness Walking in Nature
Turn off your technology, put the demands of your life on hold, step out from the 4 walls that surround you and come walk with me a while….
The Mindfulness Trail is a monthly mindfulness walk that I shall be leading from Edenbridge town centre into the beautiful wild and vast space of the Eden Valley
Each month will embrace a different topic, allowing us to reflect on the different areas of our lives to see where there is room for more growth and openess. All supported with mindfulness exercises and a wonderful walk that will be uplifting, moving, inspiring and fun!
This walk happens to fall on Good Friday so I have decided to start it earlier and reduce it to 1.5 hours so that it doesn't take up too much of the day. On a day titled 'GOOD' it makes sense for us to focus on all that is good in our lives and focus on the topic of GRATITUDE. When you connect to a feeling and emotion of gratitude, there is no room for fear, judgement or anger. Practising gratitude improves both physical and emotional health as our energy increases with this focus on the our in our lives. We all have something to be thankful for so we will walk together in gratitude for ourselves, our lives, each other and of course our beautiful planet.
A great start to Good Friday and an abundance of positive energy to keep you sailing through the Easter Weekend!!
Practicing mindfulness in Nature allows you to connect more deeply with your true self. We are part of the natural world and yet we have separated ourselves from it in so many ways.
Consciously walking through Nature has a multitude of benefits. Scientists have proven that being surrounded by Nature improves physical and mental health so practicing mindfulness in Nature creates a wonderful slowing down, an awareness of the present moment and allows time for quality reflection and purposeful questioning as we move through different terrains and quite literally enjoy life's journey.
Meet at Market Yard Car park, Edenbridge and please ensure you have sensible, supportive footwear. The walk will be a gentle walk with stops along the way for mindfulness and breathing exercises plus a hot drink half way round.
