Event description
Join us for a full-day workshop at the edge of the forest as we explore mindfulness, self-compassion and mindful nature connection.

About this event

Wombat State Forest, Daylesford, Victoria

Winter is a time to slow down and reflect, to rejuvenate, and to take it easy on ourselves. During these colder months we pause to turn inwards, seeking reflection, rest and insight.

Join us for our winter workshop offering where we will explore the practice of mindfulness, and look specifically at topics around self-compassion.

Get cosy in our fire warmed tipi as you enjoy guided meditations and mindfulness activities where we introduce you to a variety of mindfulness practices and explore topics around mindful compassion & self-care.

Included in the workshop is a 1.5-2 hour nature-connection hike through the Wombat State Forest where we will use our mindfulness skills to connect more deeply to the natural environment. The forest in winter is a mystical place, and the hike gives us the chance to mindfully soak in the wild beauty of this land.

Returning from our walk, we will enjoy a hot lunch and casual conversations before the afternoon's workshops and meditations. Towards the end of the day the opportunity is given to sit alone in the forest for solo meditation, reflection, and journaling for 30-45 minutes.

Hot drinks will be available all day including tea, coffee, & cocao. The workshops take place in our cosy tipi, but outside it will be very cold so please wear plenty of warm layers for outdoor activities.

All welcome and beginner friendly!
