Spring Nature Connection Workshops - 3rd April 2023

Dr Kamila Kwasniewska, plant scientist and botanist, certified forest bathing guide and florist, works towards connecting people with nature through five pathways: senses, emotion, beauty, meaning and compassion.


By participating in Nature Connection Workshop you will learn, new ways to tune into nature on an emotional level and draw nature into yourself.

The workshop will focus on exploring our intrinsic connectedness to nature by using our senses in the mindful practice of forest bathing. We will explore how nature brings meaning to our lives and sparks some creativity. Course participants will learn to harness this creative spark by creating a spring ikebana arrangement.


What's included:
• peaceful and private space to relax and enjoy nature
• herbal tea with vegan treats
• selection of fresh flowers
• seasonal greenery
• ikebana accessories – one kenzan (flower holder)
• one small container *

We will be making two ikebana arrangements. Please, bring your own shallow dish/container to the class.

Reviews from previous workshops:

Jennifer R.
This was a wonderful experience of mindfulness in nature and with flowers - in an amazing 'secret' location in Dublin - Kamila created a very thoughtful and well-planned day - highly recommended.

Anna K.
It was an amazing and peaceful experience, and the host was lovely and very kind. I really enjoyed every single minute. I want to try this again. The Autumn Pumpkin Flower arrangement was also really fun and therapeutic.

I did a forest bathing workshop with Kamila last week. She made our little group feel immediately welcome bringing us her own herbal tea and vegan treats! It was wonderful to take some time to reconnect with nature and with our own inner nature. In our chaotic fractured world, a day with Kamila brings peace and harmony. I’ll be back!
