Awake in the Wild- Mindfulness Meditation in Nature
Presented by: Mark Coleman
Come experience the transformative power of nature. Learn the art of meditation amid the splendour of Hollyhock’s spectacular forest, beach and gardens during summer’s spectacular display. Discover mindfulness practices that awaken you to yourself and your environment, allowing you receive the blessings and teachings of nature.
Following ancient spiritual traditions that value nature’s power to transform, do mindful walks in cool forests glades, meditate to the sounds of the ocean, and find delight in sunset meditations, opening to the profound peace and wisdom of the natural world. By cultivating this inner quiet and open curious spirit outdoors, we learn from nature as the ultimate teacher, and deepen our connection and appreciation of the earth in which we live.
This program is appropriate for beginners and experienced meditators. Be prepared for unexpected rapture, delight, mystery and stillness.
