The Glade

Nurturing Mindful Day Retreat


A programme for the benefit of the Community Health and Wellbeing, created & facilitated by Daniela Coronelli, of ‘Eco Life Wellness’, in partnership with ‘Woods for Wellness’ – a project which aims to create subsidised ‘woodland wellbeing services’, intertwining the natural healing environment of the woods with professional therapeutic guidance.

The day retreat will include a mix of mindful and kindness meditations, walking in nature, moving, and connecting with the natural elements, bathing in silence, sharing enquiry and reflection, as well as relevant poetry, in the company of a friendly and similarly motivated group, and the crackling sound of the fire.

Please note: the day retreat is not suitable if you are currently going through episodes of acute depression or other severe mental disturbances, as it would be difficult for you to take advantage of its beneficial effects. If in doubt, please email us before booking.


Open to all over 18 years old and have already been introduced to Mindfulness training for Stress-Reduction and Wellness, in whatever format, and to those who already integrate some mindfulness practices in their lives. A chance to refresh, re-enliven and embody these life skills, to enhance one’s quality of life and to grow resilience to life’s unpredictable storms, while living in a frantic world. Highly, or simply, sensitive people are welcome to join the day retreats.


Your Facilitator: Daniela Coronelli

… is a seasoned and registered Mindfulness, Shiatsu Touch and somatic movement facilitator. Her long-term passion is to guide interested people to gradually disentangle from their own cage of fixated thoughts and actions, and to enter a sense of “joie de vivre” and adventure – worth living and sharing to the full. One aspect of her work takes place in natural habitats where the therapeutic effects of the environment offer the ideal ground for de-congesting and re-connecting to the fundamental ground of one’s being.

The miracle is to walk on the green earth.
