Nature Walks for Wellbeing are 90 minute sessions that use nature walks to provide mindful nature-based therapy to those suffering from poor mental health, and those just taking care of themselves. Participants meet at a pre-determined location in Nairn/Aberlour, Inverness and Moray each week, with different leaders each week to provide varied activities. The sessions emphasise experience in and benefiting from, nature. Art, storytelling, poetry, nature tracking and wildlife watching may form part of the session and mindfulness activities are a regular focus. As part of the walk, the group have tea made on a fire with a wee snack and the chance to chat together in a beautiful natural spot. Always a very slow and gentle walk, so hiking boots definitely not required!
