Creating connection with nature

Mindful In The Green

Mindful In The Green is a collaboration between The Wheel Within and Jacqui Bagatelas from Freedom Therapies. These occasional workshops focus specifically on using nature as a focal point for mindfulness and meditation.

These workshops are excellent for beginners and for existing practitioners wanting to explore and expand their practice in an outdoor setting.  Mindfulness can help promote a sense of peace and will develop your ability to be present and aware in the moment. Nature is a wonderful facilitator of mindfulness practice with a wealth of sensory abundance to draw on!

During a workshop we will:

  • use a variety of traditional mediation and mindfulness techniques – contemplation, sensory awareness, being present, guided meditations and more.
  • provide you with inspiration and seed ideas to develop your own outdoor mindfulness practice.
  • use some more active techniques and exercises to bring what we have explored to life and think about how we can take it back into our everyday lives.

They are held at various green locations around Bristol.

What do I need to bring?

We will be working outside as much as possible for all of these workshops so please wear weather-appropriate clothes – waterproofs and waterproof footwear, sun cream and hats, and as many layers as you feel you will need depending on the weather.

You will also need to bring a drink – it’s suprisingly thirsty work!
