Visiting gardens and spending time in the fresh air can enhance feelings of wellbeing whilst helping improve both physical and mental health. Whether disabled through sensory or physical impairment, or through age, our dementia-friendly walks provide an enjoyable experience for all.

This walk will take in the Garden’s highly scented deciduous azaleas which will stimulate the senses with vivid colours and fragrance. Visitors will also be encouraged to feel and touch the large purple allium flowers blooming in the herbaceous borders.

Take time out to relax and chat with like-minded people whilst reconnecting with nature through sight, smell and touch.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Tickets:

Visitors will be encouraged to get up close and to smell the different varieties, whist also being able to feel and touch the purple nepeta blooms surrounding the Rose Garden’s central pool, a favourite plant for buzzing bees and pollinating insects.

Nature for Wellbeing – Meditation for Peace with Keren Ghitis

As part of our 2020 Wellbeing Programme, experience the tranquility of the Italian Garden in a unique way whilst contemplating what matters to you.

Enjoy exclusive private access to the Garden before it opens to the public for a special meditation, activity and nature morning to mark the International Day of Peace.

The magical grounds are the perfect place to stop, reflect and experience the peace we wish for ourselves, our families and community. At the end, participants will be given a small plant to take home; a living, growing reminder of the day. You will also be able to stay and enjoy the grounds.

This one and a half hour event will include meditation and other mindfulness based activities.

Please bring cushions to sit on.

Prior meditation experience is not required; beginners welcome.

Keren Ghitis is a Mindfulness Based Psychotherapist and a yoga teacher.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]Tickets
