• Forest Bathing ~ Queen's Wood (Highgate)

    Queen's Woods

    £25.00

    We'll spend a lovely 2 hrs slowly exploring the enchanting Queen's Wood. During this gentle session you’ll be guided through a series of ‘invitations’- carefully crafted exercises designed to help quieten your mind, heighten all your senses and deepen your connection to the world around you. These may take the form of mindfulness awareness, walking & sitting meditations and nature-therapy exercises. From here, you’ll be invited to bathe in the overall atmosphere of the woods as well as to take a closer look at the finer details of nature around you. Apart from my guidance, most of the session takes place in silence. It’s an individual practice, enhanced by sharing the space with others. There is an opportunity to discuss our experiences towards the end of the session, over a cup of herbal tea. No previous experience necessary. What to wear/ bring Please wear comfortable clothing and footwear suitable for walking off the beaten track. It’s a slow-paced session with periods of stillness so on a cool day warm layers are recommended. In the height of summer the woods are wonderfully shady so may be cooler than you expect. Depending on the weather you may wish to bring sun cream/ waterproofs and a small bottle of water. Please refrain from wearing strong perfumes as they may mask the natural smells of the woods. Location The cabin is situated just behind the Queen’s Wood Café. Facing the café, go through the gate to the right of the building and up the gentle steps. If it’s wet, the decking can be very slippery so do take care. Queen’s Wood Café is in Google Maps if you’d like some technology to help you find your way. Also see map attached. Travel Bus: 43 and 134 ‘Highgate Wood’ stop (5mins) . 263 stops at Highgate underground station (8 mins). Underground: Highgate (Northern Line) (8 mins). Car: There is free on-street parking in Connaught Gardens. You can then walk through the woods to the cabin (10mins). There are several paths in the woods and it can be confusing. Facilities The cabin will be locked while we are outside so you may leave your belongings there during the session. There is a sawdust toilet next to the cabin and regular toilet facilities at the café which are available for cabin users. Weather/ cancellations Sessions will take place in all weather, unless it’s unsafe. Getting to know the woods in different weather and seasons deepens the experience. Should it be deemed unsafe (very heavy rain, high winds or storms) and the session is cancelled, you will be notified the evening before via the email address you booked with. If the session is cancelled, you will receive a full refund. If you can no longer make a session, please let me know via email. 72 hours notice is required for a full refund. Safety and Responsibility As with any natural environment, there may be uneven ground and natural hazards such as tree roots and low-hanging branches. In booking on this event, you agree to take responsibility for your own safety during the session.

  • The Seasonal Self: Spring session

    Queen's Woods

    £35.00

    Thrive year-round by aligning with the seasons. Nature constantly changes and adapts to her surrounding conditions, gently accepting and embracing the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The cycle is essential for nature’s health, vitality and continued growth and while we know these seasons in nature, we rarely acknowledge that our own bodies reverberate to seasonal changes as well. Nature represents stillness and simplicity in winter, growing energy and creativity in spring, blooming fullness during the summer months and a process of harvesting, releasing and slowing down in the autumn. Many of us will recognise our own personal impulses and patterns reflecting in this cycle. Yet, with busy lives, established routines and a culture demanding consistency, we often struggle to notice and to respond to these changes within us. The Seasonal Self session gives us a chance to pause and quietly consider how we are at this point in the year. Through meditations, rituals and conversations we explore our personal joys and challenges of the current season. With part of the session taking place outside, we draw on the wisdom of nature as we consider how best to respond to our cyclical rhythms in order to thrive.
