Mindfulness in the Mountains

Mindfulness in the Mountains

Details

Mindfulness in the Mountains will give you the opportunity to do just that, to really live in the moment without distractions or unnecessary concerns. The core activity will be walking in the fabulous restorative countryside around Buttermere, following some classic Buttermere based routes such as Haystacks and Rannerdale knots.

Some of the walking will be in silence with targeted activities to help you to connect with your surroundings and yourself. There will be time set aside for reflection and, if you are interested, resources to help you to familiarise yourself with techniques and theoretical concepts.

In addition, there will be opportunities to participate in some gentle yoga and short meditations. These activities will be suitable for both beginners and seasoned practitioners, planned as a generic restorative practice. The yoga practice will also pay attention to those areas of the body that support walking activity, ensuring that you can make the most of both the physical and mental activity.
