An hour and a half of meditation and discovery in the Botanic Garden, using the power of plants and their essential oils to enhance your experience and connect more deeply with nature. The plants will be celebrated, with some discussion of their effects on mind and body. We will move gently through the mood spectrum: citrus for invigoration, rose and geranium for self-love and nurture, finishing with lavender for relaxation; meditating on each in turn.

Please bring a firm cushion or yoga block and a blanket, and a bottle of water. Please advise in advance of any allergies. Citrus oils in particular can be photo-sensitive. Application of (diluted) oils to the skin is optional. For meditation: although it is a generally safe and enjoyable practice, we ask that you check with your GP concerning any mental health conditions before booking.
