This gallery is the final photo essay generated by Katy Hawkins and photographer Sandra Keating. On 11th August at the Green Festival Peterborough, Katy designed a mindful wandering workshop as part of 'The Best Things in Life are not Things', with participants' observations artistically documented by Sandra Keating.
'We ran a two mini-wanders during the course of the Green Festival. As the group wander they are asked - as facilitated through acetate cards - to focus in on, and really notice, different elements in the environment: smell, texture, the world above.
The group share observations with one another as they go and Sandra captures those moments on camera. At the close the group write what stood out for them.

Interested in promoting mindfulness whilst wandering, this was one section of the Wander With workshop. Full length wanders invite participants to apply a mindful and noticing eye to undertake a critical analysis and assessment of our everyday environments.
