Bench Avenue

When was the last time you connected with nature? The Park is at the bottom of Dunfermline’s bustling High Street, acting as an oasis with lush green lawns, swishing trees and spectacular, always changing views. Claire Thompson has written a technique called Sit Spot to link us with nature. 

You can read it or listen to her guidance while sitting on a bench or lying on the grass. Let your mind wander, hear the wildlife, smell the flowers, feel the breeze or rain on your face.

Read the guidance or listen to Claire guide you through the 30 minute routine bringing mindfulness into your visit to the Park today.
