This 8-week Mindfulness course provides a structured programme and is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how to become more mindful in their everyday life.
“Simply put, mindfulness is moment-to-moment non-judgmental awareness.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
There is published scientific evidence that mindfulness can assist with:
Stress reduction – Improved health and wellbeing – Reduced anxiety and depression – Happiness – Greater confidence and self-esteem – Clarity and focus – Ability to have better quality sleep – Greater resilience – Enhanced creativity – Improved work-life balance – Greater work satisfaction – Improved concentration – Rapport and communication – Improved relationships – Pain reduction
The sessions will provide you with the ‘tools’ to calm your busy mind and allow you to connect with nature by using your senses of touch, sight, smell, taste and hearing and ultimately improve connection with yourself.
This course provides a fusion of MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) and MBCT (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) with the focus on nature. It requires the participant to be committed to weekly attendance and requires daily mindful meditation practice in-between the weekly sessions.
This course does not provide a quick fix. Mindfulness is not therapy. Mindfulness is a discipline.
Mindfulness is how we are living our lives, moment by moment.
We note that the majority of people booking on Mindfulness sessions are women. Mindfulness is beneficial for EVERYONE. We welcome men of all ages.
Many companies have started offering Mindfulness to their employees as there is plenty of scientific evidence that it can help with stress.
The majority of the course will take place in our award-winning woodland. In case of inclement weather we will have the use of one of the timber-framed Centre buildings heated by a wood-burner stove.
The course will be led by Sabine Soosten, an experienced and qualified Level 3 ‘Mindfulness in the Woodland’ and a Mindfulness Now practitioner who acts as guide and gives support.
We offer this 16-hour Mindfulness in Nature course at a special Covid-19 offer of £150

Woodland Skills Centre is a not-for-profit social enterprise. Therefore all our costs are kept to a minimum.
