• Discover our nature sensory workshops for pain, peace and stress management

    Good mental health is everyone's business

  • Who might attend our workshops and why?

    The more technology we have in our lives the more important it is to ‘leave space’ for nature.

    Workshops involve hands on interactive sensory engagement with nature, using the 5 main senses, and based on the techniques Stuart uses to manage his own Rheumatoid Arthritis.

    Ideal for adults and as a family activity and designed to open the mind and senses to nature, to observe and experience not to name and catalogue.

    Provides an opportunity to appreciate nature on a much richer level and reveals tools for use in the workplace to manage stress.

    Enjoy a much deeper quality of connection with your environment. 2, 4 and 8 hr workshops available.

    We facilitate our own workshops, have numerous collaborators, and make guest appearances to form part of the programme at other venues and their outdoor activity programmes nationally.

    Experiencing is understanding.

    Prices vary depending on venue, timings, content. Contact the Wildman to design your own event direct with him. See terms and conditions.
