Pullenvale Environmental Education Centre and Mind With Heart Australia are hosting a 7-day challenge and half-day retreat!

Let’s slow down and breathe… listening deeply… relaxing on the soft grass, in the shade of the gum trees… feeling the wind warm on our skin… connecting with nature… connecting with ourselves… ideas of demands and deadlines vanish… refreshed and revitalised again.

Are you an educator, or member of school staff? Would you like to unwind, and revitalise? Connect with nature for a short time in a simple but nourishing way?

You can sign up to a easy 7-day mindfulness in nature challenge, and half-day retreat!

Practising mindfulness in nature can help us to open our senses, be present,  listen deeply to life and feel alive again.

7-days of Mindfulness in Nature

Every day during Queensland Mental Health Week (10-18 Oct 2020) you’ll receive an email, with some tips for how to connect with nature in just a few minutes every day.

Enjoy activities such as:

—looking at some flowers

—enjoying the view from your verandah

—listening to bird song

—walking around the schoolyard

—taking a photo of something you find beautiful in nature.

Half-day Mindfulness in Nature Retreat

Additionally, on the afternoon of Saturday 17th October, the group will gather for a half-day Mindfulness in Nature Retreat, hosted by Mind With Heart and Pullenvale Environmental Education Centre.

This will allow people time to really bathe in the experience and let their minds unwind, surrounded by trees and birds. You’ll explore sitting and walking in nature, using mindfulness to help connect to nature with your senses.

There will also be some social time, sharing food together, and enjoying reflection time in a circle to acknowledge the mental health challenges educators and school staff face, and how mindfulness in nature can help support wellbeing. In this way, those involved will integrate their learning and continue to benefit long after this week is over!
