Cotswold Natural Mindfulness & Forest Bathing

2023 Well-being Walk Dates & Events.

Regular Nature Connection boosts health, relaxes the mind and lifts the spirit. Many of us feel this intuitively and instinctively. Now new nature-based science is proving it.

Cotswold Natural MindfulnessIan Banyard has been offering his unique approach to nature-connection since August 2014. Ian runs limited monthly membership walks introducing people to Natural Mindfulness, Forest Bathing and the therapeutic benefits of walking mindfully in nature.

Ian also provides Natural Mindfulness & Forest Bathing guide training for those who share his passion for guiding others to a deeper connection with nature and their true nature. Contact Ian for more details. Ian has trained Natural Mindfulness guides in many countries around the world.

New for 2023 “Pay it Forward Wellbeing Walks”.

How “pay it forward” works. – Starting this year (2023) my first Natural Mindfulness Well-being Walk of the year will be free to attend. At the end of this walk and future walks, participants will have an opportunity to donate towards a place on a future walk. In other words ‘gift a place’ to someone on the next walk- “pay it forward”. There is lots of evidence to suggest that random acts of kindness like ‘paying it forward’ can boost our well-being. I feel this approach aligns beautifully with Natural Mindfulness well-being walks. It also enables those who can benefit from a well-being walk, but maybe struggling financially, have an opportunity to attend. Learn More about Gifting walks.
