Liz Dawes

Forest Bathing

Throughout her life, Liz has travelled extensively spending many transformational years living in India, trekking the Himalaya, attending silent retreats and personal development courses, taking her on a fascinating journey of self-knowledge and understanding.

Originally from Burnley in Lancashire, Liz emigrated to California in 1987 with her family. She subsequently lived in the Netherlands before returning to Lancashire to study Law and French. This took her to London where she practised law for 11 years but a career for life as a real estate lawyer was not for her!

In 2012, Liz discovered mindfulness and over the course of the following two years, she developed her own mindfulness practice and then trained to teach mindfulness courses. Since then, she has taught mindfulness in India and the UK and has had a busy private practice working with individuals and corporate groups.

However, Liz was drawn to find a practice that combined her extensive learning with her love of nature and is now a Nature and Forest Therapy Guide (under mentorship of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy).
