OCCUPATIONAL NATURE THERAPY AT baba's

Simply what it says on the tin, Occupational Therapy is ‘healing through meaningful activity’, in nature. 

Any and all the activities in our lives can be nourishing to our mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing, no matter how simple they may be. By applying ourselves fully and engaging in mindful meditative practices we can learn how to observe and regulate our feelings and emotions, and thus deeper connect to our Selves and the environment surrounding us.

A lot can be said about the healing qualities and wisdom we can receive from nature. The links between increased well-being, life span and happiness, and the time spent with nature are becoming increasingly researched, yet this green-fingered practice goes back for as long as we can remember and was practiced all around the world.

FOR ADULTS 

Re-wild yourself in the Forest. Learn how to listen to your body and the Earth around you. 

Metaphorically, Forest exploring and natural practices can offer infinite lessons and answers, thus therapeutically assisting one who is seeking deeper questions and connection to themselves, their peers and Mother Earth. 

Not only is foresting and ‘nature bathing’ good for the emotional and spiritual body, it can energetically provide a grounding to the physical body too. Grounding, also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves doing activities that “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth, such as walking barefoot on soil or gardening practices.

Additionally, learn how to use Ayurvedic tools and lifestyle practices to assist your state of connection, being and balance through understanding the seasons and elements at play in nature.
