Smell The Raindrops

Mindful Ecotherapy with Julia Lay

Smell The Raindrops

Festival time!

Light evenings, the sweet smell of blossom, fresh lush grass – I’m definitely enjoying spring. It’s easier to be aware of what’s happening in nature when there are buds springing out and symphonies of birdsong everywhere you turn. And I’m loving being able to go for a walk in the park after dinner – it really helps settle my mind ready for sleep.

I’m also very pleased to be invited back to innocent unplugged at the end of May this year. Last year it was a wonderful place to enjoy all of the above and more. Set in the middle of the forest, with an ethos of getting away from technology, it is almost ecotherapy in itself. The perfect place for some mindfulness in nature! Tickets are available on their website for just £15, all of which goes to nature conservation in the local area. I suspect it will sell out quickly – the ‘banquet’ tickets already have. It was a tiny site last year with a capacity of only a few hundred people (which made it a beautifully intimate experience, although don’t expect many stalls or any big name bands). I really recommend it – look out for me in the outdoor, wood-fired hot tubs if you go…

In other news, next Sunday (17th April) is the last ecotherapy session before a bit of a break. It’s at 11am in Primrose Hill. You can book a place by emailing me. I’m very fortunate to be going on holiday to Iceland and the US, and am excited about checking out some different wildernesses :o)  I’ll be back for more smelling of raindrops in London on Sunday 15th May (11am in Regent’s Park). All info as usual at, or email me with any questions.

Happy springing!
