Service Description

With the light nights and early sunrises upon us, our bodies yearn to be outside in the twilight hours, soaking up the power of the sun, listening to the birds as they awaken and letting our minds explore the sights, sounds and textures around us. Join me as the longest day of the year dawns to harness the power of the Summer Solstice; reconnecting with nature and ourselves. During this session we shall have time to settle and connect as a small group, opening our senses during individual 'invitations' and finally taking a solo wander through the forest as the sun arrives. This solo walk is an ideal time to think about your focus for the next few months or to let go of things we don't need to carry around with us anymore that might be weighing us down. At the end of the session, as the day breaks we shall enjoy pine needle tea and scrummy bakes. Location: Loch Garten, meet at Loch Mallachie Car Park. Directions: From Boat of Garten: Leave the village over the River Spey towards Nethybridge, turn left at the T-junction. Turn right towards RSPB Loch Garten. Continue on this road until you reach a signposted car park on the right for Loch Mallachie. If the car park is full continue along the road to the Loch Garten car park (on the left) and there is a narrow footpath that links to the two car parks. From Nethybridge: Follow the B970 out of Nethybridge towards Boat of Garten and Loch Garten. Take the left turn just after Mains of Garten, it is signposted for RSPB Loch Garten. Continue on this road until you reach a signposted car park on the right for Loch Mallachie. If the car park is full continue along the road to the Loch Garten car park (on the left) and there is a narrow footpath that links to the two car parks.

There is not a toilet available so please go before you arrive! During the session we shall be focusing on our different senses to develop a connection with the forest and ourselves.
