Mindfulness is a powerful but simple tool – focusing your awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting your feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. This powerful technique is even more impactful when practiced outdoors, in nature, lowering your blood pressure, your stress levels, and your heart rate.
This mindfulness workshop will begin with a guided, one-hour lesson and meditation. Then we’ll each go to a quiet spot in nature to practice simply being – mindful, not mind-full. We’ll meet back together to enjoy (and learn about) Prairie Tea made from the local wildflowers and trees while we share and receive additional instruction from Heather Sullivan of MindfulGreen. Participants are welcome to extend their mindful time on the preserve after class.
