ROOM TO BREATHE FOUR WALKS IN FOUR SEASONS
23 June, 22 September talk/event
Room to Breathe: Four Walks in Four Seasons
38
17 Mar–22 Sep 2018 / Various times
 
Room to Breathe is an opportunity to spend a day at YSP walking, thinking, talking and gaining some insight into the things that are on your mind. There is time for informal talking as we walk as well as structured space for talking and thinking as a group. The day is structured to help you find areas you need to focus on, decisions you need to make, problems you need to resolve and then have the space to explore them. Walks are led by Group Analyst Chris Powell and GP Andrew Wilson.
 
We use the open air – to relax bodies, expand minds, remove everyday demands.
We use the group – to provide understanding support and challenge.
We use skilled facilitators – to ensure you focus on things that will make a difference.
 
You will need:
– Walking shoes or boots adequate for seven miles on hills and footpaths
– Adequate waterproof and warm clothing, including a hat. We will be spending periods of time sitting still; you may want to bring an extra layer
– Packed lunch, water and a hot drink
– A back pack
 
The day includes:
– Private access to James Turrell’s Deer Shelter Skyspace at the beginning of the day
– Tea, coffee, cake at the end of the day
 
Please note:
– This event runs from 9.30am–4pm
– Cancellations made within 60 days of the event are subject to fees – find out more
– Parking is not included
