A mindful woodland wander

Re-connect with nature among the trees of Hayburn Wyke.

  • Booking essential

Trees have a profound effect on us. Spending just 10 minutes in a woodland has been proven to calm busy minds and make us grounded. This 2 mile wander takes you through the woodlands at Hayburn Wyke, walking slowly and mindfully to take in the environment. There’ll be stops along the way to do a short mindfulness exercise and a meditation. This event is led by Alison Goodwin of Adventures for the Soul, qualified walk leader, Yoga teacher and former Zen Buddhist.

Mindful practises are calming to the mind and benefit the body too. Meanwhile, you’ll appreciate being around trees even more. After a while, you may start to notice the vibrant colours of nature, beautiful birdsong and the smell of sea air. Essentially your senses can become more finely-tuned as your attention moves to being in the present moment. Anxiety and stress reduce and can even drop away. A Japanese government report suggests a 2 hour experience with trees can reduce stress and blood pressure, while improving memory and concentration. Trees also release chemicals known as phytoncides, which have an anti-microbial effect. Some researchers reckon these boost our immune system.
