About The Event
Mindfulness in Nature on Mothers Day*
Sunday 31st March
10.30-12.30pm (please arrive 10 mins before the start)
Due to the nature of this event no children under the age of 16 years allowed and sorry no dogs.
*This event is open to all adults, however you might like to bring your Mum and be together in nature on Mother's Day.
Join us on a mindful wander around the beautiful Chorlton Ees and Ivygreen Park. We will be paying attention to the nature around us by engaging our senses to the sights, sounds and smells and meditating in various points throughout the session.
Mindfulness can help us to feel calm by being more in touch with the present moment experience. It takes us out of our busy heads and into our body.
No prior mindfulness experience needed. Please dress appropriately for the weather and your own comfort (waterproofs and sturdy boots recommended). We will be walking in all conditions unless it is very stormy!
Meet at the entrance on Ivygreen Road (heading north west on Ivygreen, near Cartwright Road) 10 minutes before the start time.

The walk is being led by Claire Morris an experienced Mindfulness and Nature Connection Teacher with over 10 years personal mindfulness experience and over a decade working in the environmental sector.
What past participants have said:
‘This lovely event reminded me of the benefits of mindfulness and showed me how to notice every aspect of nature around us, with our eyes, ears and nose, and even in touch the breeze on our face and the feel of the ground through our shoes. I would recommend this to anyone, even if you don’t think it’s your style. Claire makes it into a lovely experience for all. I’ll be back for more’. Andrew Read, Participant
‘I got the chance to get up close and personal with a tree whilst blindfolded. Not as weird as it sounds, but the ‘find my tree’ exercise we partnered up to do was something I enjoyed immensely and getting to chat to a few people as we walked was wonderful too. If you’re new to meditation or just want to practice mindfulness, I can’t recommend Wild Awake Mindfulness enough’. Shell Robshaw-Bryan, Participant
