Room to breathe

4 Walks in 4 Seasons
Days to stretch your legs and your mind

– Time to think
– An environment free from everyday demands
– A group of understanding people willing to talk

Room to Breathe is a group that meets in the Dales 4 times a year – Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn – to walk, think and talk over a day. The day is structured to help you find areas you need to focus on, decisions you need to make, problems you need to resolve, and then have the space to explore them. There is time for informal talking as we walk, as well as structured space for talking and thinking as a group.

We use the open air – to relax bodies, expand minds, remove everyday demands.
We use members – who understand the pressures and dilemmas you face, who can add different perspectives, who can generate new ideas
We use the group – to provide understanding, support and challenge
We use skilled facilitators – to ensure you focus on things that will make a difference
