This workshop is organised and led by Gudrun Grimpe who is a Systemic (Integrative) Therapist and Holistic Acupressure Practitioner with a degree in Environmental Sciences. For bookings please go to Eventbrite and/or contact Gudrun directly via or 07529 224640.

Unleash the strengths of this season… in you! In this holistic wellbeing and mindfulness workshop you can find out more about staying healthy, happy and well… and enjoy the special qualities of autumn:

  • Simple body mind exercises will help you tune in to yourself.
  • We’ll explore the links between breath, vitality, resilience, and releasing what is no longer needed.
  • Being in Nature and with others, we’ll strengthen our sense of connectedness and belonging.
  • You’ll get creative tasks, and time to reflect on: What is essential in my life?
  • You’ll learn about gentle and effective self-care options, using the touch of your hands.

The ‘tools’ and understanding you take from this workshop can be implemented directly in daily life. You’re invited to strengthen your inner calm and clarity, appreciation for self and others, flexibility and determination in thinking and acting – and to simply being in harmony with what is.

This is what participants of the August event said:

“I loved the workshop. It was relaxed, interesting and restorative. I think the combination of mindful movement, energy points and sharing with others was complementary and so interesting. I’ve never done a workshop like this before and I would definitely do it again. Each time would be a unique experience.”

– Sarah

 “The day was very informative, well structured and presented. Over the last week I have used the techniques from the session to help calm my body and mind by enjoying what nature has to offer.”

– Martin

Participants are advised to wear comfortable clothes suitable for indoors and outdoors, which allow free movement. There’ll be a break with light refreshments (included in the fee).

We will begin and end at the Environment Centre, where toilets, hand wash and sanitising facilities are available. We’ll make sure that with regard to Covid everyone can feel safe and fully enjoy the various activities in the group and alone.

Entry: £25 plus booking fee. Places are limited, booking via Eventbrite is necessary to secure your place. More Happy by Nature events are planned, so get in touch if you’re interested but can’t make this date.
