Mindfulness in Nature
June 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
, Free – $15
Gardening, hiking, simply being outside—all can bring about a sense of awe and gratitude. Mindfulness can nurture those experiences as well—experiences which are particularly important in a time when it’s clear that our relationship with the rest of the natural world is in need of healing…and when the ongoing rhythms of the world can be comforting and centering in the midst of social distancing and significant uncertainty and loss. Join Farm Table’s Mike Schut for conversation and guided meditation.
Note: This class and conversation will be held via a Zoom video, with some time for reflection outside and then time to return and continue the conversation.
