Having read about Awe walks I was excited to go for a ConsciousCafe walk with the aim of experiencing awe and wonder and sharing the experience with others. As the day approached, the weather forecast looked bad but I was determined to go ahead with it. We were so blessed that we had a wonderful two-hour window of lovely weather and the rain only started when we reached the cars!
The walk was glorious and as we looked at the trees we reflected on their strength and resilience through the seasons . We felt that nature imparted to us feelings of joy and hope just as we stood there. This will probably be the last chance to see the bluebells as they are now gradually fading but still it is magical to see so much blue in the woods. I would strongly encourage everyone to try walking outside and experiencing awe at the beauty of nature wherever you are . Research has proved that this is good for your health and mental well-being.
