Mindful colour walk at Thames Valley nature reserve

Wild About Reading event

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Autumn, with this slow, mindful colour walk around the Thames Valley nature reserve and the surrounding meadows.

This walk has been organised to support the ‘Wild about Reading’ event programme.

Starting at 10.30am, this walk in nature will last around an hour.

Walking with plenty of space between us, I will guide you on ways to reconnect your senses with your surroundings. This will include spending a short time, just sitting in silence, enjoying ‘being’ part of nature.

During this walk I will also introduce you to the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (also known as ‘forest bathing’). I will invite you to take part in an optional gentle activity to distract your busy mind and awaken your sense of wonder.

Forest bathing can help reduce stress and anxiety, improves sleep, concentration and boost creativity. Spending time in nature can also be a helpful first step to recovery, if you feel low or overwhelmed.

To comply with my Covid-19 policy, this walk is limited to six people (including your guide).

I will also share some dōTERRA essential oils with you to help you relax, or you can take a sample away to try later if you prefer.
