Mindfulness in forests for organisations

"The session was really useful to me and helped me understand how much I miss in not being fully present. It helped me learn to focus and taught me a new way to be with nature which I hadn't fully appreciated before. Looking at nature for the answer to things really is a revelation and something that will help me in the future in this crazy world of ours."
