During this unprecedented year, nature has comforted, inspired and liberated, providing us with an escape from the isolating world we find ourselves in. However, at a time when ecosystems are failing, nature is equally a cause for concern and can prompt feelings of anxiety. This session will look at both sides, demonstrating how nature writing can be a great mindfulness tool and how this can help alleviate anxiety.
This workshop is suitable for people aged 16+
