Mindfulness in Nature with Fergus Beeley

Immersive wildlife experiences with Sir David Attenborough's former producer - the ideal escape for city dwellers, battery recharge for tired mothers, time out for those suffering from stress or anxiety - or simply for nature lovers to see wildlife in a new light.

Disconnect from the throes of modern life with our new Mindfulness in Nature stays, in partnership with wildlife expert - and former BBC wildlife producer for Sir David Attenborough - Fergus Beeley.

The Mindfulness in Nature days are Fergus' response to recent research showing that humans need nature for good health and wellbeing.

The workshops include time for acknowledging nature and being aware - identifying bird calls, being mindful of surroundings and noticing the smallest insects, as well as larger birds and other animals. Guests will learn about the less familiar dimensions of space, time, sound and colour in the natural world. The experience will also look at how to engage attention and occupy the mind - learning to focus effortlessly - combined with totally slowing down and gaining a sense of perspective. Breathing and listening are also of utmost importance throughout.
