Come together for a slow Sunday walk, guided by the seasons of Tasmania’s Botanical Gardens. Exhale as we wander the Lilly Pond. Inhale the Rose Arbour aromas. Connect with yourself, others & the wild world. Enjoy simple sensory, creative & physical practices for restful recovery. Create ease & wellness for daily awe & wonder. Delight in a relaxing immersion & conclude with a refreshing bush tea. And if you wish, contribute a spoken word recording for our own “Dear Tree” soundtrack.
