Walks of a Curious Nature

Stay Curious with Walks of A Curious Nature

Our Heligan Healing experience combines seasonal storytelling with an immersive nature promenade. Delve into the beauty of the gardens and wonder at your place in nature through thoughtful exercises, seasonal narration and a spot of hammock swinging!  


  • 23 Jun: 2pm - 4:30pm
    13 Oct: 2pm - 4:30pm

Join us for a guided celebration of the season, on a ‘Walk of a Curious Nature’.

Developed in collaboration with educator and writer Rupert Isaacson. Explore how play and movement provide a natural boost to mood and wellbeing, whilst immersing yourself in the calm tranquillity of nature and the beauty of The Lost Gardens. Stroll and leap through woodlands alive with new life and listen to birds as they celebrate the lighter days. Join us as we emerge from our own ‘wintering’ and connect with nature as we look with renewed optimism towards our journey ahead.

This energising and intriguing experience aligns the brain science behind joy and calmness, with the natural benefits of time in nature. After a warm welcome around a glowing firepit we’ll walk through the Heligan estate exploring our personal nature connections. Look out for colour, growth and hope for the year rolling ahead of us, and get to questioning mother nature about what she is getting up to this season! We will be gifted with finding beauty in its many forms.

To complete our seasonal celebration, you are invited to join a short meditation after which you’ll have a chance to enjoy a herbal infusion around the campfire and spend some time relaxing in ‘The Den’, making use of the hammocks and sky gaze net for a moment of reflection or planning.

No two seasons are the same, they each deliver an important and transformational moment. Therefore, no two curious walks are the same, and can all be experienced, generating a full story of how planet earth cycles and evolves and our place within that.

Please note, this experience does involve around 90 minutes of continuous walking, hopefully much laughing and occasional elements of silence. Much of the route includes steps and steep inclines, not suitable for pushchairs, or wheelchairs. Please dress for the Cornish weather and we suggest sturdy footwear is worn. No dogs or children aged under 12 years of age are suitable for this experience.

It’s time to stay curious with nature…
