Workshops in Nature

Summer Workshops in the setting of our beautiful and local National Forest

I’m really happy to introduce this series of workshops in nature for anyone in North West Leicestershire living with a condition which limits quality or length of life.    We are delighted to partner with the National Forest, and with Wild Minds to offer 3 free workshops in the beautiful location of Feanedock, to reconnect people with nature and to improve people’s mental health and wellbeing.   For those who have been shielding, or worried about venturing out over this last year,  we hope to offer a safe space to enjoy the beauty of our local surroundings and feel more confident about getting back out.

Wild Minds

Wild Minds are a small local company who run nature-based wellbeing sessions for the people of North West Leicestershire, South Derbyshire and East Staffordshire. We will be leading the Forest Bathing sessions and will take you through a series of different activities to engage your senses and improve your connection with nature. We will encourage you to release your inner child, to enjoy the time you spend in nature and to lengthen the time you spend outdoors to enable you to become more mindful of your surroundings and of what nature can do for you. We cannot wait to share our love of nature with you and send you off feeling just the same way.

The National Forest 

The National Forest Company is working with partners and communities to create a Forest for everyone. We are continuing to grow and manage it, and make it more accessible so that the benefits of trees can be felt by everyone.  We are delighted to be working with Hospice Hope and Wild Minds and supporting local people to engage with and enjoy the outdoors in a way that they might not have done before. Connecting with our natural world is so important for a healthy body, mind and soul. We look forward to helping people forget about the stresses and strains of daily life by experiencing Forest Bathing, which is a wonderful way of experiencing the stillness and beauty of nature, at our woodland in the heart of the National Forest .
