James Kendall shared an album to Forest School Wales's Timeline.
Hi, James and Lea from Woodland Classroom here. Last month we joined other health & well-being practioners and Forest School leaders for skill sharing and workshops at the Llais y Goedwig Gathering 2015. We demonstrated the slack line in the woods - a great tool for teaching mindfulness in a woodland setting.
James and Lea from Woodland Classroom joined other practitioners at the National Gathering for Community Woodland groups across Wales for a special workshop which brought together professionals who are using woodlands to improve the nation's health and well-being. Lea put her slack line to good use as a demonstration in practising mindfulness. Thanks to the Actif Woods project and Llais y Goedwig for hosting us.
