Being Mindful in Nature: A Nature-based Meditation Workshop

Loading Events

Do you struggle with meditation? Do you struggle to stay present when you meditate? Do you struggle with anxiety and tiredness?

Meditating in and with nature helps us be present and calm more easily than if we meditate indoors. In this afternoon session we will learn to focus, to soften, to meander, and find joy in our own local park!

We will aim to spend most/all of our time outdoors but do have the option to use the greenhouse if we get rained on, we will ease gently into our outdoor practice.

Many of us struggle with cultivating or maintaining a mindfulness practice. It is, in fact, easier and more natural to practice mindfulness in nature. Nature is a wonderful teacher, helping us more intuitively tap into feelings of peace, joy, and to be more present with the world around us.

We also know from recent studies that spending time in nature for even 10 minutes a day has profound impacts on our physiological and emotional wellbeing. So why not start here, with our wonderful gardens (and Deepti) as your guide!

Who is this workshop for?

Everyone! Whether you are new to meditation and mindfulness or a practitioner who wants to deepen their practice. If you love nature you’ll love this workshop!

What to bring

Sunscreen, water bottle and snack, extra warm layer, rain trouser and jacket, and camping stool/meditation cushion (portable)

There will be some waterproof sheets to sit on and we can carry a few chairs from the greenhouse if necessary, so don’t buy anything specifically for this session!

Pay What You Can
