Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, Mindful-In-Nature is a Sharpham programme specifically designed to support mental health recovery, resilience and well-being by offering a unique combination of mindfulness and nature connection.
The next course will begin on 1st October 2019 and run every Tuesday 10.30am – 3.30pm for 9 weeks (No session on 22nd October 19) and will take place in our beautiful woodland in the grounds of Sharpham House.
A simple lunch is included which will be prepared together by the group.
Sessions will run from the woodland campsite, with an outdoor kitchen, and a covered hearth to sit around together. There will be a cosy indoor space available when the weather is poor.
