Taking Care of Primary Care: 5 Ways to Nature Connection for Workplace Wellbeing with NatureWell

FREE COURSE! Join Wild Gathering CIC for 3 hours once a week for 3 weeks to experience the health & wellbeing benefits of nature connection for health professionals at work. 

This is what other health professionals in Surrey have to say about their experience of NatureWell:

“Amazing course have loved it!  Feel a real connection to nature and appreciation for how it enhances our wellbeing.  I love how the group shared emotion and felt comfortable in this beautiful setting to be congruent with one another.” 

“I have loved how much I have grown during the course and how much more I’m thinking about the need to factor nature into my life and work. Sian and Kate have delivered an outstanding course with strong guidance through each aspect.  Thank you.” 

“Really great – made me feel able to reconnect to nature in a way that I had not thought of before.  Helped me to think in a more positive way and move away from prescriptive thinking to a more open and creative mindset.  BIGGEST THANK YOU!  Really hope to continue developing this and you both have supported my motivation and confidence to do so!” 

“Thanks again for hosting such a wonderful course.  Probably the best I’ve been on yet!”
