Winter Mindfulness Walk with Pamela Carr

“Nature is full of genius, full of divinity, so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand” - Henry David Thoreau 

This is the first of four mindfulness walks at Tegg’s Nose Country Park during 2018. Even if you already know Tegg’s Nose you can expect to be surprised when you slow down and become more aware of where you are and what’s happening. One walker wrote: “Today showed me some new and different ways to appreciate what I see and where I am.” 

Research is now proving that our direct contact with nature really can benefit our health and wellbeing. Mindfully walking outdoors in nature through all the seasons can be a truly magical, nurturing and healing experience.

If you enjoy walking, love nature and want to explore Mindfulness - join Pamela Carr on this leisurely morning walk with a difference.  The gentle walk (about 2 miles) will include some pauses and simple exercises to help us to slow down, become more present and open our senses to what we can see, hear, feel, smell and maybe even taste, moment by moment. 

Pamela loves this beautiful space and experiences new inspiration every time she visits.  Previous walkers have spoken about discovering for themselves the quietening, calming and creative benefits of walking mindfully in nature. You might like to bring your notebook or camera.

Following the walk you’ll return to the popular Tegg's Nose Tea Room to share discoveries and creative ideas.  Optional drinks/snacks available to purchase. Suitable for anyone over the age of 16

Booking and payment in advance is essential. Cost £8.00. 

Time: 10.00am to 12.00pm
