    CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW Connection to Nature and Self - The Spring One Day Workshop

    10.30am - 4pm

    CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW

    Gaunts House, Scania, Heike and Gaby would like to invite you to a day of deeper connection to nature and self. Drawing on the therapeutic power of mindfulness, ecotherapy, meditation and Sound.

    The day will begin by harnessing the therapeutic power of the natural world by exploring the grounds of Gaunts House using nature based activities. Being in natural surroundings has a positive effect on our wellbeing. In modern day, nature and human minds have traditionally been separated… so the day begins exploring, connecting and bringing the inner child into play…
    We will move on to Forest Bathing (walking meditation in woods) this is “shinrin-Yoku” (taking the atmosphere of the forest) recent research has shown that people that forest bathe experience lower levels of the stress hormones cortisol after their walks in the forest.

    We then come back together to enjoy a Vegan Lunch (included in the price of the ticket)

     

    .

    In the afternoon we Join Heike and her amazing drums and percussion instruments for a drumming circle and end the day with Scania and the Gongs

    The Gong and Drum provides an psychoacoustic gateway to heightened states of awareness and consciousness. It is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and to break up emotional blockages. When skilfully played, gongs stimulate and resonate all cells in the human body simultaneously and recalibrate the parasympathetic nervous system.

    The Gongs and Drums will create a sacred space, they may allow us to attune our energies and link with our higher selves. During this Gong and Drum afternoon we can be reminded of the fact that in spite of outward appearances, we are really beings of light occupying physical bodies. The gong and drum sessions will allow time and space to connect with that divine-light energy in order to recharge our “spiritual batteries”
