Ecotherapy Walks / Workshops with David Staunton
Do you ever feel like your life is getting busier and more complicated by the day?
We generally feel better after a walk and from being outdoors – but do we know why?
What do we understand of our own therapeutic relationship with nature and how can this knowledge benefit us in our everyday lives?
Would you like to learn how nature can effectively guide us towards better health, whilst increasing our resilience and helping us to reduce our stress levels?
Then join David Staunton, counselling psychotherapist and founder of the ‘Walk Inniú Ecotherapy Hedge School’ (www.walkinniu.ie) for a relaxing and enjoyable walk and talk here in wonderful Wexford.
Allow yourself the many benefits of being outdoors in a natural space.
Discover how ecotherapy is developing in Ireland and how nature can effectively guide us all towards better health, whilst increasing our resilience and helping us to reduce our stress levels.
There will be four workshops with David Staunton around the county, organised by Wexford Walking Trails with the help of recently acquired Lottery funding.
Having worked extensively with services in Dublin supporting people affected by homelessness, addiction and poor mental health, David strongly believes in the growth, healing and learning benefits from working in nature.
Join us on one of the following dates and venues for an innovative look at walking and nature:
Saturday, November 5th, 3pm – Ferns
Saturday, November 5th, 11am – Courtown
Saturday, November 12th, 9.30 am – Carrigbyrne

The workshops are for over 18s only, and will need to be booked in advance, as there is limited availability on each walk to allow for maximum participant benefit.

There is a charge of €5 for each workshop, payable on the day.
Each workshop will last 2 – 3 hours, and is a combination of walk and talk.
