Mindfulness In Nature – Fire & Ice (with Roger Reynolds)

February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$35 – $65

Bundle Up! We will be outside. We will focus on moving mindfulness practices, as we move our bodies to warm up outside in winter. We will also practice mindfulness around a campfire. Nature is dormant, yet the human mind is full of thoughts, as often happens. The quiet landscape, snow and ice, and fire bring us many ways to practice mindfulness and increase our awareness of ourselves and our surroundings.

(If it is below 15F, windy or raining; we will reschedule.)

Mindfulness In Nature is a “Down to Earth” approach to Mindfulness Meditation. We use nature as part of the mindfulness experiences. One can practice mindfulness with a leaf, a branch, a tree, a stone, a flying bird, a fire, the landscape, clouds and more. Gently, we increase our connection to self and nature.

Mindfulness is paying attention to one’s Breath, Emotions, Thoughts, Senses and Surroundings (BETSS) with awareness of Judgments, and without attachment to the moment. Mindfulness is used for many reasons, including stress reduction, better physical health, better mental health, plus improved relationships with oneself and others.

Our time together will include discussions and short mindfulness exercises/practices. We will explore sitting, standing, and moving mindfulness exercises. Everyone is welcome from beginners to the experienced. No judgments.
