phil blackwood workshops

Phil Blackwood

Phil discovered meditation and alternative therapies in his teenage years, after being drawn to a more balanced and holistic approach to life. This led to him gaining a BA/BSc in Healing Arts and Sociology. He finds community work very rewarding and has engaged in many projects over the years.

From a young age Phil’s playground was the natural environment and he now recognises its inherent healing properties too. Woodlands and waterways are his thing and his comfortability in water stems from his RNLI service. Working for over ten years in Cardigan Bay amongst a large team, he adapted his role to offer mental health and well being support.

Phil has an open, energetic and playful nature. His passion is to create spaces and to share tools that promote and enable positive change and wellbeing in others within the natural environment.
