Grounded by Ruth Allen

Grounded by Ruth Allen


How do we understand nature? Benevolent and supportive? Wild and threatening? Reassuring or unpredictable?


We all have a different experience of, and relationship with, nature. Reflecting on nature's unknowable and mysterious qualities, Grounded explores how we can therapeutically benefit from a deeper connection with nature, finding within it balance, stillness, solitude, resilience, contentment, activity, fearlessness - and our own wild voice. Within this book, you will discover:

  • Mindfulness, breathing and stillness activities
  • Movement exercises to connect with the physical world
  • Work-life rebalancing
  • Nature study and eco-therapies

  • About the author

    Ruth Allen is a psychotherapist, trainer and writer based in the Peak District (UK) specialising in ecopsychotherapeutic/outdoor practice. Her works brings together elements of traditional talking therapy, body work, movement and existential philosophy, and takes them outside into wild spaces where there is an opportunity to explore aspects of Self and lived-experience within the rest of nature.

    Ruth regularly contributes to mainstream and independent publications on themes of mental and emotional wellbeing, nature connectedness and adventure, and her work has been featured in Stylist Magazine, The Telegraph as well as BBC Radio 4 Ramblings with Clare Balding. She is interested in the inner and outer journeys we make, the stories we tell about them and the time we spend in solitude cultivating a two-way relationship with the living planet.
