Mindful In Nature: Nature Connection For Beginners

Hi there, I’m Robin Harford, creator of Eatweeds. In this nature connection audio course, I teach gentle nature-based practices to help restore, maintain and deepen your connection to Nature. To Wildness.

A long time ago, I used to be a drug addict, and when I came off drugs, I spent time in a Buddhist recovery community in Thailand learning mindfulness.

Over the years, I have adapted and incorporated what I learned into my own nature connection approach to wellbeing. 

I call my approach Wild Wellbeing, and I hope this short audio course helps bring you peace and serenity.

I use these same practices daily as part of my own self-care routine. So I thought I would share them with you.

My self-care practices need to be nature-based and easy to do.

They can’t take very long, and more importantly, they need to be gentle and effective. They need to support me in being kind to myself.

So that’s what I will be sharing with you in these audio lessons. The same things I do to keep me calm and serene most of the time.

When I teach these practices on my Wild Wellbeing courses, I tell people they are about: ‘getting out of your head and coming to your senses.’

Let me explain what I mean by that.

Whenever I experience stress and anxiety, I find that my brain starts fizzing. I have obsessive and fixated thoughts. It’s excruciating as it feels like I am going to snap. 

Often there is a lot of tension in my body. It’s very uncomfortable, and I find myself agitated and anxious. I don’t know what to do with myself, and I usually end up locked into my brain with negative obsessive thinking.

Does this sound familiar?

So each practice I share with you is designed to do one thing, they are designed to bring you back into your body, into the present moment.

When this happens, I find I can handle my stress and anxiety pretty well.

I look forward to helping you.
