Take time away from work demands and immerse the team in nature. This well-being investment is essential for replenishing resources so your team doesn't feel drained and dispirited when encountering home and work demands. 

A Living Connections session can have a specific focus, depending on the company's needs, such as team building, stress management, corporate identity, feedback on how employees perceive the company, creative processes and more.

During your workshop, your experienced guide will offer your team a variety of invitations to notice, reflect and interact with the forest around them. These may include purposeful slow walks, exploring rongoā rākau healing plants, focusing on the senses to take real notice, or the gentle guided movement practice to help relieve stress. All invitations are optional, with some experiences as part of the group and some on their own, and we can devise the right mix of invitations to suit the team's needs.

More and more research demonstrates the benefits of nature-based experiences, including improved memory and cognition, stress reduction, increased creativity, enhanced immunity and heart health. The team will come away invigorated and relaxed.
