Soulwalk

Mindful, open-hearted walks to nourish your soul

[For next Soulwalk event/dates click here]

Soulwalks are mindful open-hearted walks in nature, designed and structured to facilitates a more therapeutic and restorative experience whilst walking. In the process creating healthier, happier and safer communities.

Soulwalking super-charges the naturally holistic benefits of walking by integrating simple embodied practices of moving, breathing, thinking and expressing with intention, awareness and appreciation, that gently yet profoundly guide one into a deeper presence with oneself and others.

Soulwalks are very much about the awareness and presence of the person(s) leading the Soulwalk™ in creating and holding a space, or atmosphere that is safe, welcoming and therapeutic. It’s a sharing circle by nature but not always in structure. In other words there is no professional therapy or advice given, but rather just a responsibly guided social support groups. Soulwalks are limited to 20 people per leader so as to make sure everyone feels seen, heard and held. We like to start at 11am and walk for approx. 3kms (more or less), walking at a gentle pace for all.

At Soulhub we are passionate about empowering and supporting others. Hence we love to theme some our Soulwalks, giving local people an opportunity to be featured on part of a walk. People can share either their inspirational life stories or specialist subjects and talents such as botany, herbalism, foraging, gardening, music, art, dance or anything that is either educational or inspirational.

Soulwalks are always on public land and in spaces that are safe and easily accessible. They must not enter private property or any protected environment without permission.

Background:

We held our first Soulwalk in October 2019 in Richmond Park. Soon after, we collaborated with Crabtree & Evelyn to bring 7 themed Soulwalks (Safari tales, herbal medicine tour) across the major parks in London. Extract Coffee, asked us to create their Soulwalk in Bristol for customers and community. We were then well and truly up and running.

In 2020, Carmen headed off on a ‘Around the British Isles’ Soulwalk but was soon halted by the pandemic, and returned to London to host them with Andrew in Richmond Park.

Soulwalk™ aims are to facilitate:

  • Better understand and compassion of ourselves and each other
  • Improved mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing
  • Deeper connection, appreciation and conservation of our natural world

It is imperative that anyone wishing to partake in a Soulwalk™ resonates, agrees and follows the fundamental principles and values below:

In every walk with nature one received far more than he seeks.

Hear from Soulwalkers:

 


“I count myself lucky to have discovered Carmen and Andrew’s Soulwalk, and the bonding with nature, trees and deep breathing that happens when you do a soulwalk. I have met ‘by chance’ some amazing people, and it’s been a breath of fresh air to arrive with no expectations (and I must admit a bit of OMG what people will I meet this week) to discover that on each walk I have been fortunate enough to have had some fantastic conversations and have embraced the unexpected, and the unexpected is what I seem to get each time !!!!! I remain a dedicated follower…”

Soulwalk Richmond, 2020

”A great walk with Soulwalk in Hyde Park. Perfect way to spend a Sunday morning. We all met at the meeting point, gathered and started our walk. During our time together we discovered parts of the park we had not seen before, which led to new conversations as the scenery led to new open thoughts and fresh perspectives. Soulwalks are such a great idea as it gives you time out of your day to day life to express hopes and dreams and realities, and therefore wellbeing in nature. I felt up lifted and looking forward to the rest of the day and week. Can’t wait to join the next walk.”

Before the pandemic, Carmen embarked on a Soulwalk around the coast of the British Isles. This was the story, then!
