The Medicine of Mindful Nature Connection
The practice of mindfulness enhances our awareness of present moment reality, helping us to focus on the here and now. This is inherently calming and restorative, and especially vital at this time of uncertainty and major change.
Combining mindfulness with nature-based practices brings the medicine of present-moment awareness into our connection with nature, allowing us to expand and deepen our relationship with all the many different qualities of nature we find within our own being and around us in the natural world.
Nature-based mindfulness is perfect for anyone longing for a deeper connection to nature and to their own natural selves. It's also ideal for anyone feeling the negative effects of disconnection and overwhelm, such as stress, tension and anxiety; for anyone feeling helpless about environmental issues and climate change; and for those living with physical or mental health and wellbeing challenges.
It's one of the most holistic healing and personal development practices there is, bringing together the long-separated realms of earth and spirit into one integrated whole.

An ancient practice backed up by modern neuroscience
Both mindfulness and nature interactions are ancient practices that were known for their beneficial health and well-being effects. More recent research has shown that mindfulness can assist with improved attention, emotional regulation and self awareness as well as depression and chronic pain. Nature experiences have been shown to increase energy and vitality, improve immune systems and promote life satisfaction and happiness.
Latest neuroscience is also finding that by combining mindfulness and nature connection in a 'rewilding' experience, there is a greater restorative effect on the mind and body, sharper sensory acuity, enhanced presence and connectedness and more positive mood.
Mindful nature connection can also promote a more profound reconnection with ourselves and others, deeper feelings of compassion and a beneficial relationship with the environment that can lead to environmental awareness and sustainable choices.
