Wellbeing

For those seeking clarity and mindfulness Duration 8 days

Our all new Wellbeing programme takes traditional mindfulness practices and blends them with the classic elements of an Outward Bound course. The course is designed to help adults who are seeking greater clarity – perhaps in times of challenge and transition – who need space to reflect on their lives or who want to learn or deepen a meditation practice – or who simply want to walk their own path more deeply. It will reconnect you with your true self, giving you more confidence and motivation than ever before.

I feel I am leaving with an open mind, things I want to change & implement, and a stronger sense of self.
