🎶 Gong Sound Bath Meditation Classes
We can offer calming Gong Sound Bath classes as a form of passive meditation to help people switch off from their daily thoughts, quieten busy brains and help instill a sense of calm and relaxation.
We’ve had a range of ages attend from 15 to 70 years young , so this really is a great cross generational wellbeing activity that doesn’t require much at all, expect lying down all snug and cosy.
Please see our Gong Sound Bath page on this website for more information.
Also. we host mindful Forest Bathing sessions, otherwise known as Shinrin-Yoku, which has a growing body of evidence globally that it can boost our psychological and physiological wellbeing.
We can offer talks about the origins of Forest Bathing which delve into the scientific data and share tips on how to apply principles of the mindful practice of Forest Bathing in daily life.
Please see out Forest Bathing page on this website for more information
🌱 Nature Health Benefits Connection Talks
The current ever available technological world we live in, combined with the social impact post covid pandemic on stress and anxiety, along with a burnout culture, and increasing levels of isolation and loneliness are contributing to a mass mental health epidemic.
There’s a wealth of evidence and research that demonstrates the impact that nature and green spaces have on our health and wellbeing, which has had an influence on recent government and NHS policy, and is being integrated into Social and Green Prescribing referrals.
Please visit our Nature Health Benefits pages to hear Geraint share research and psychologists theories, and how our neurotransmitters or brain chemicals, are positively impacted by time spent in nature.
🎤 Group Singing Workshops
There are many benefits of group singing to our wellbeing, across psychological, social and physiological parameters. These include group cohesion and bonding as a rapid ice breaker, reduction in stress and anxiety levels, elevated happiness and wellbeing, and developing confidence to name but a few.
G Nature & Wellbeing can offer Group Singing Workshops by our singing professional Meinir, ex world renowned accapella group the Swingle singers, when she isn’t away singing on cruise liners with her classical crossover duo Indigo May.
