Walks to Wellbeing with Audio Guidance

A series of 24 online audio guides, led by Dr Anna Dako

Treat yourself to the audio-guided version of Walks to Wellbeing from anywhere in the world, at a time of your choosing and while visiting some of your favourite outdoor places and paths!

A one year long subscription with access to a specially designed Online Members' Area is now available for purchase, which will allow you to access a series of 24 audio guided walks in Sensuous Receptivity in somatic experience​.

 

These will be accessible via a new login to this exclusive online environment, which you will be given upon payment.

 

Included in the subscription, you will also receive a free online (Zoom) session with Dr Anna Dako at the end of the series to consolidate your experience, ask specific questions and find out more about the following stages of the training in Felt Thinking.

The audio guides are approximately 20-30 minutes in length. You may listen to them whilst on your walk in your local area, allowing yourself to be guided whilst you are on location. Alternatively, you can listen to the audio guide prior to your walk and follow the instruction in your own time once there.

You will be able to access and download each audio guide, allowing you the freedom and flexibility to access it multiple times as well. You may also choose to be guided by them again at a different location to support your ongoing wellbeing. 

About the Walks To Wellbeing (Audio Guidance)

The Walks to Wellbeing (Audio Guidance) will introduce you to the three steps of experiential immersion as the creative methodology of Felt Thinking and how to keep discovering different entry points into ecological connectivity in movement and reflection.

Felt Thinking is a body-based way of working with movement in somatic experience of the Self. It is a deep self-inquiry journey which brings the lived connections between Nature and the Self to the fore and which offers new insights to how we are in the world and how to remedy multiple imbalances.

During the guided walks in ongoing Felt Thinking with Nature we will strive to bring all the living and wellbeing-enriching aspects of the natural environment to our awareness and ponder over their deeper meaning as experienced in movement. We will be learning how to give the experience its voice and how to build a creative dialogue with the landscape’s distinctive qualities and the environmentally inclusive ‘whole self’.

Key concepts explored during the audio guided walks include:

 

- Proprioceptive and interoceptive sensitivity and conscious movement

- Dialogical processes in relation to feeling, sensation, imagination, and functional movement

- Explorations into the inner landscape of the body through sensory awareness and meditative movement practice

- Skills of interoceptive and exteroceptive listening that support sensory homeostasis

- Being in the moment with reflexive voicing of the experience as a form of self-therapy

Please enjoy the taster to the experience of being guided on the outdoor Walks in Somatic Receptivity with these two first audio walks, which open the series of 24 walks. 

The guidance is designed to be paused and assisted with your own explorations of the exercises offered, and so the suggested minimum time spent on the walk is about one hour. Do Enjoy, and do not forget to take your reflective journal with you on the walk.
