Walking Meditation

“De-stress, Unwind, Leave the Office Behind”

A 2005 study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that exercise increases the growth of neuronal brain cells, possibly elevating mood permanently.

Advocates of the walking meditation approach say that being active during the session helps patients to relax and open up, and some patients say they find it easier to talk while looking forward and walking, rather than staring the therapist in the eye.

Walking meditation combines walks in Worcestershire amongst  beautiful countryside and riverside locations including the Worcestershire Way and The Malverns.
Hourly walk and talk sessions for busy professionals including lunch times and after work: .
Extended sessions and half and full day walk and talk for individuals and groups with beautiful scenic pub stops serving amazing food, by arrangement.

How can I benefit?

  • Combining life coaching with walking meditation not only helps you achieve your goals but helps you exercise at the same time – and is better than the gym! How walking helps you lose weight is really encouraging because it is a cardiovascular exercise and is just as effective as jogging, but kinder to your joints. It is also much more sustainable long term than any other form of exercise.
  • There is a growing interest in what is described as “green mental health” and ecotherapies. Going for a walk surrounded by nature, is shown to help with depression and mental wellbeing according to Mind, a leading UK mental health charity.
  • Evidence suggests that green mental health techniques are very effective in overcoming “the blues” and re-energizing us.
  • Great for overcoming stress and breathing more efficiently and calmly.

  • Great for groups and team building, to reconnect joined up thinking and cohesion and for unique days out in Worcestershire.
  • People instinctively turn to outdoor and nature-loving activities as a way of relaxing and enhancing their mental well-being.
