A celebration of the Spring Equinox in the wonderful surroundings of 

Greyfield Woods, High Littleton.

 

Emily Malik and Lucy Holland are  experienced biologists, environmentalists

and forest school specialists, who lead us through the skills of being present

in the woods. Be it whittling a stick, making a dream catcher, pencil or hazel 

circle, we all calm our agitated minds  to a point of being present. 

With a woodland fire, we make soup and eat bread whilst all the while 

being mindful, gentle and calm. Celebrating the dawning of the spring

with the energy of the Equinox.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) refers to a strongly evidence based stress reduction program formulated by Jon Kabat-Zinn, founding director of The Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.Mindfulness in Bath.

Mindfulness practice originated in Buddhist Meditation, and has since been adapted for non-religious and therapeutic applications and is universal and of deeply practical benefit to everyone of any background regardless of religion or faith whether young or old.

Mindfulness and meditation can bring us back to a more central axis of peace and spaciousness where we discover that in each moment we have the choice to respond to stressors in ways that are more accepting, kinder to ourselves and less damaging to our health and happiness. 

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.

Mindfulness is not something you have to achieve, its there all the time
