What to Expect in Our Mindfulness For Practitioners - 4-Part Class

Our Mindfulness class provides an opportunity for you to slow down, nurture peace of mind, find balance, clarity and connection in the natural world. In modern life we are increasingly lost in digital screens and human-centric places and as a result feel numb, dull, distracted and disconnected from each other and nature. The conditions of modern life are troubling at times and mindfulness in nature is a powerful way to connect with stillness, fortitude and resilience. 


Discover why mindfulness is an important skill for wellbeing, holding space for others and developing an ecological perspective in nature. Allow the wonder and awe of nature to move you into deepening connection and participation in this precious life. Learn mindfulness and ecotherapy skills  and approaches for connection to yourself, community and the natural world through systematic practice, interpersonal dialogue and inquiry, creative activities and guided homework connecting to nature and place.

The Mindfulness 4-part Class is an authentic way to be in nature and will help you develop a habit of awakening your sensory awareness. We encourage you to develop a receptive, open quality of awareness that allows a rich sensitivity to mind body social and environmental context. Over the four weeks you will learn how to navigate a helpful practice, how to understand habitual thinking patterns and how to liberate your mind from cultural ideas you are seperate self. Learn how to hold space for meaningful mind body social and nature connection and deepen your relational skills with compassion, creativity and wisdom.

Join us in developing insight, clarity and a somatic experience of your place in the web of life. Discover how to move through stress with greater ease and resilience. Take your practice off the cushion and into nature, working cooperatively with others and mindfully connecting in all that you do. Join our 4-part class to wake up to this moment and the beauty and wonder of this changing earth.
