Mindfulness in Wordsworth's Landscape

Mindfulness in Wordsworth's Landscape

Reviews

    Details

    ‘A meditation rose in me that night upon the lonely mountain when the scene had passed away, and it appeared to me the perfect image of a mighty mind’, wrote Wordsworth in The Prelude. We will be reflecting on Wordsworth’s approach to mindfulness and contemplation, and developing our own in a workshop with Steve Johnson, a local mindfulness teacher.

    Using mindfulness practices including meditation, mindful movement, sense awareness and connection to nature you will learn to engage more fully with your surroundings and develop skills that can improve your well-being and help with the demands of everyday life.

    There will be three workshops this year (April, July, October), and you can come to one or more as the exercises will change with the seasons.

    Full disabled access is available to the Wordsworth Museum and Art Gallery. As Dove Cottage is an historic building, we have been unable to make provision for disabled access. However most wheelchairs will find the ground floor accessible and there is a virtual tour of the cottage available at the information point in the Wordsworth Museum.
