Restoring the link between people and woodlands

Mindfulness in Woodlands courses

Coed Lleol (Small Woods Wales) helps train activity leaders to incorporate mindfulness into their work, working with Small Woods and the Woodland Skills centre to run courses. The  four day course gives people the confidence to lead their own Mindfulness sessions. We also have a one day introductory course that runs on demand.
