“I have come to know the closeness to Cumbrian nature that inspired the Romantic poets, such as Wordsworth and Coleridge; the meditative power of simply putting one foot in front of another over the fells; and the cheer carpe diem feeling of losing myself in the moment.” David Atkinson, The Independent, 2015

In today’s world, being busy and stressed can be the norm. Whether you are part of the corporate world, struggling to find a work/ life balance, caring for others, volunteering for a charity or simply having difficulty finding time to fit everything in, you need to give yourself a break.

Escape with us to the beautiful Lake District for a few days and replenish your diminished energy by giving yourself some time to pause, and reflect on life.

Restore, Reflect & Recharge in the Mountains will give you the opportunity to do just that, to really live in the moment without distractions or unnecessary concerns. The core activity will be walking in the fabulous restorative countryside around Buttermere, following some classic Buttermere based routes such as Haystacks and Rannerdale knots.

Some of the walking will be in silence which allows you to connect with your surroundings and yourself. There will be time set aside for reflection and, if you are interested, resources to help with relaxation techniques that you can take away.

In addition, there will be opportunities to participate in some gentle yoga and short relaxation sessions. These activities will be suitable for both beginners and seasoned practitioners. The yoga practice will also pay attention to those areas of the body that support walking activity.

As Jon Kabut-Zinn observed ‘Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally'. Be prepared to reconnect with yourself and discover the beautiful landscapes of the Lake District.
