One sunny Sunday in May was perfect for some mindful walking up at Durlston Country Park in Swanage. We are blessed with breathtaking views of the Jurassic Coast, beautiful meadows and fields, and a multitude of wildlife, here: the perfect backdrop for some mindfulness and meditation. We took off our socks and shoes, (when was the last time anyone did this as an adult?) lay in the grass and walked mindfully alongside the meadow, rich in colour and beauty. So much to feed our senses, cultivate inner peace and connect with that which supports us.
My gift to everyone who came along was to leave feeling contentment, joy and happiness. I hope that this gift was received as intended. People certainly left looking relaxed and happy!
Thank you to Dave Pratten for your help and to Ali Tuckey, the Durlston Country Park ranger for organising the events, and to all who came along. I ran a further two sessions in the park, which were enjoyed by all.
The next Mindful Walk is on Sunday 13 March 2016 at 10.30 and costs £5. Booking is essential, contact Durlston Country Park on (01929) 424443 or
