Urban Nature and Mindfulness Retreat

  • WILD PLAY Discovery Centre Dickens Dr Centennial Park (map)

Experience the healing and restorative effects of movement, mindfulness and nature connection on this Urban Nature and Mindfulness (Half Day) Retreat. Be guided through a 1hr gentle yoga practice followed by a 2.5hr Forest Bathing Walk, all in the Pine Forest at Centennial Park. Give yourself the gift of three and a half hours of mindful movement in nature!

What is Forest Bathing? Rest assured no nudity required! Forest Bathing is an immersive, sensory experience where we let nature soak in using all our senses. We use meditation, mindfulness and slow movement to reawaken our innate and intuitive connection to the natural world, healing and restoring ourselves in the process. We periodically gather to share our experience throughout the walk, practicing wholehearted listening to others and dropping into our authentic, true selves. From this place we are most empowered to deeply connect to ourselves, others and nature.

Program includes:

- 1hr gentle outdoor Yoga practice (accessible to anyone, beginners welcome)

- 2.5hr Forest Bathing Walk, including guided meditation, slow wandering and gentle invitations to connect to nature, as well as a bush tea ceremony and snacks.

Please bring:

Yoga mat, hat, water, jumper and light rain jacket if it looks like rain

Note: event will be cancelled in heavy rain or storms but may go ahead in light rain.
