Naturally Healthy project

For the last two years I have been involved as a provider in the Dartmoor Naturally Health Project.  Aimed at residents in the Buckfastleigh area with low emotional, mental and physical health. The project has been a three year research and development project into the benefits of spending time in Nature in held groups. Running alongside the successful walking for health programme supported by GP’s across the county we have offered, basketry, Forest tai chi, electric bike rides and art in Nature.

The benefits to the participants are huge, as you can imagine and I can only hope that the NHS will continue to fund, promote and support these activities as an alternative to drugs.

I am offering two more Creative Journeys ;

Wednesday 9th August Join Emma Capper and the Dartmoor Naturally Healthy Project for a Creative Journey along the banks of the River Dart in Hembury Woods. We will be collecting materials to create expressive art inspired by nature whilst creating a sense of wellbeing and relaxation whilst enjoying gentle exercise. The workshop is free – numbers are limited so to book a place call Chrissy Mason on 01626 831057 or email cmason@darmoor.gov.uk
Meet at Victoria Woodholme car park 09:45 am for a 10.00 am departure to Hembury. Returning to car park for 1pm.

Wednesday 18th October as above.

Reflections on a Creative Journey at Henbury hillfort from participants

Gave me a chance to get
out in nature with others.
I feel so much more alive being outdoors.

I don’t get many opportunities
to really focus on my surroundings. I have anxiety & stress issues and this has really helped me feel much calmer

Took me out of my hectic lifestyle to drop into myself and find some peace and stillness.
It’s helped me to take some time out for myself and this has been very restorative for me.

An opportunity for self reflection and an invitation to share with others in a safe supportive space.
Open up your senses mindfully absorbing the elemental benefit of being in Nature. Find peace and stillness away from the business of your mind.
