Meditation in the Park
London’s eight Royal Parks provide vital breathing space to escape the stresses of modern living for millions of people every year.
We reach out to make the Royal Parks part of more people’s lives and our partnership with Headspace gives you the chance to experience meditation within natural surroundings and enjoy the benefits it can bring, right in the heart of London.
Headspace are on a mission to get as many people in the world to take 10 minutes out of their day and practice this simple technique, because scientists believe it makes a hugely positive psychological, emotional, and physical difference to your life. Together, we're encouraging people to find headspace in the most conducive environment – The Royal Parks.
There’s no mystery, no jargon and no religion involved. We're offering you the chance to get your meditation practice on track by using this easy to learn technique.
Get Headspace in The Royal Parks
It’s so important to get out into nature, especially in a city. We believe parks are the best place to go and find some headspace. Research has shown that connecting with nature has many benefits and can help lift your mood and reduce feelings of stress and tension.
In partnership with Headspace, we created our very own walking meditation designed for The Royal Parks and in 2012 and 2013, we held a series of Headspace events at the Isis Education Centre at The LookOut in London’s Hyde Park, led by Andy Puddicombe, co-founder of Headspace.
Hundreds of you came along to learn more about meditation and to experience getting some Headspace within a Park setting. Find out more from our blog.
