Looking for something different for your next team-building day? Want to get out of the office to refresh and reset, or find new inspiration? Want to share the practices of mindfulness with your team?
Our mindfulness forest hikes are a 'team-building' activity that your staff will actually enjoy. What better way to spend a day away out of the office, then in the invigorating surrounds of the forest? Learn about mindfulness and how this can be useful in the workplace and for the wellness of your team, whilst also having fun, exploring and breathing in the fresh forest air.
Our programs offer an introduction to the ideas and concepts of mindfulness, as well as opportunities to practice these skills through guided forest engagement activities. We will provide the group with information and inspiration that they can take with them after they leave to continue with a mindfulness practice at home. Practicing mindfulness in the forest also offers a number of benefits from the natural environment. Studies into eco-therapy and forest-bathing continue to show how time in nature effectively lowers stress levels and improves immune system function. Forest-based experiences can also help improve creativity, self-esteem, mood and focus whilst reducing anxiety, depression and stress. This, combined with the similar wellness benefits of mindfulness, will offer your team a truly rejuvenating experience.
All of our packages can be customised if required.

Boost creativity & innovation
Mindfulness is a brain-training exercise that helps promote open-mindedness and this can catalyze new and innovative ideas. Allowing the mind time to quieten can also create the space needed for creative ideas to become realised. Time in nature also offers much inspiration for our creative pursuits.
Improve focus & concentration
Mindfulness practices lead to improved focus and concentration. The more we practice the easier it becomes to stay focused. Our tours are designed to encourage you to continue with your mindfulness practice at home after you leave the forest.
Mindfulness is a practice that leads to self-growth and empowerment. Mindful skills can encourage the expansion of our awareness and inspire you to be the best version of yourself. Time in nature also promotes self-growth and motivates us towards our full potential. Our programs are designed to empower the individual on their journey.
Reduce stress & restore balance
Mindfulness practices and spending time in nature both help support wellness by reducing stress levels in the body. Studies show that a 2 hour walk in the forest can effectively lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body, as well as lowering blood pressure.
Promote healthy relationships & teams
Mindfulness is underpinned by attitudes of compassion and care and helps teach us new ways of relating to other people. We can also tailor our programs to include team-focused nature activities, promoting cooperation, compassion and synergy in the forest environment.
Build greater resilience & courage
Mindfulness skills enable us to cope better with stress and other emotions. We learn useful techniques that help to develop resilience in the face of difficult situations, and this helps build greater strength and courage in the individual. Throughout our hikes we also encourage exploration and adventure, helping to further cultivate personal courage.
