Nature Therapy Benefits – Feel Good Factor

Nature Therapy Benefits – Feel Good Factor

Back to Nature

 

 The Connacht Tribune has run a feature on Crann Og Eco Farm promoting the importance of Nature and the positive effects it has on our daily lives.

Connecting with nature through guided Nature Therapy Walks, Nature School and ReNature Retreats helps us slow down and relax, reduces stress, strengthens our immune system and lifts our mood.

We have been talking about nature therapy benefits since 2004. Visitors and participants emerge from Crann Og reconnected, restored and relaxed. Their shoulders drop, their smiles broaden and they sleep deeper.

 

 

It was fantastic to have such a lengthy feature written about Crann Og and Marion, helping to promote the cause of getting people back to nature for well being and health, emotional and physical. Many thanks to Judy Murphy of the Connacht Tribune for such a good article!

Marion will be giving an introduction to Nature Therapy Walks at the BurrenBeo Landscape Symposium on 10th – 12th March 2017.

Teens + Nature = TEENature: Nature Smart Camps

Teens + Nature = TEENature: Nature Smart Camps

One of Ireland's best Summer Camps!

 

We host TEENature Summer Camps at Crann Og Eco Farm, County Galway Ireland in July and August.

These camps were listed in The Irish Times as one of Ireland’s 50 best things to do with kids this summer!

TEENature is a natural progression for teenagers from usual outdoor experiences into a deeper connection with Nature. Teaching is done by way of the Art of Mentoring and among many other benefits, leads to enhanced self esteem and self confidence.

In this era of high rates of obesity in teenagers, attention disorders, behavioural problems and depression, Richard Louv’s research has led him to coin the term Nature Deficit Disorders in his book “Last Child In The Woods”.

By exploring wilderness through playfully challenging activities, basic survival skills and community living on a camp site.

Teamwork, problem solving, building resilience and competent risk taking while developing physical fitness and motor skills are all integral parts of living in Nature.

TEENature is tailored to inspire enthusiasm and curiosity to learn from Nature, discovering facts and mysteries. Games and exercises help to expand sensory awareness, focus the mind and enhance relaxation and intuition.

Howard Gardener, Professor of Education at Harvard University developed the theory of 7 multiple Intelligences in 1983 and recently added the 8th, ‘Naturalist Intelligence‘, which he calls “nature smart”!

The Author, Mentor and Tracker Jon Young points out that Nature Connection is the foundation of a healthy and vibrant Culture as it is really through Nature Connection that we can deeply connect to ourself and then others.

Or as Sir David Attenborough put it:

No one will protect what they don’t care about, and no one cares about what they’ve never experienced”.
