Friday 26th March

10am-4pm – 6 spaces – email info@chyan.org to book

The typical Cornish hedge is a stone-faced earth hedgebank with bushes or trees growing along the top. It is called a “hedge”, never a “hedgerow” or “wall”. Our hedges may be of bare stone encrusted with lichens and mosses, or disappear under luxuriant greenery. Between these extremes are many variations, depending on the type of stone used, the local climate and the style of farming. Hedges are our largest semi-natural wildlife resource and our most prominent landscape feature. Their history is preserved in their structure.

In Cornwall there are still about 30,000 miles of hedges, and over three-quarters of these are anciently established. The earliest Cornish hedges enclosed land for cereal crops during the Neolithic Age (4000-6000 years ago). Prehistoric farms were about 5-10 hectares, with fields about 0.1 ha for hand cultivation. Many hedges date from the Bronze and Iron Ages, 2000-4000 years ago, when Cornwall’s traditional pattern of landscape became widely established. Other hedges were built during Mediæval field rationalisations; more originated in the tin-and-copper industrial boom of the 18th and 19th centuries, when many of the heaths and uplands were re-enclosed. Hedges from all these times are still very visible in the landscape and in normal use.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course Open to All

Mindfulness is developed by purposefully paying attention in a non-judgmental way to your experience of your body, your mind and the world around you. Mindfulness is about being awake and aware and living in the present, rather than dwelling in the past or anticipating the future.

Staying in touch with the present in this way, from one moment to the next, may lead you to experience yourself differently, perhaps feeling less stuck, or recognising more strength, balance and confidence in yourself. 

Most people completing the programme report lasting physical and psychological benefits including:

  • Greater self-confidence and more acceptance of life as it is.
  • An increased ability to cope effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations.
  • An increased ability to relax and experience calm.
  • More energy, enthusiasm and appreciation for life.

There will be a taster session for this course on Sunday 3rd January 2-330pm at Chyan Farm. 

This course is funded by the Emergence Foundation

Participants for the 8 week course will be asked to complete an application form and a pre course interview. It is essential that participants commit to the whole 8 weeks.
