The Mindfulness in Nature group sponsored by Wild Blue is based on the book Awake in the Wild: Mindfulness in Nature as a Path of Self Discovery by Spirit Rock Senior Teacher Mark Coleman.
Mindfulness in Nature practices will be guided by mindfulness teacher Kimberly Sogge, Ph.D. (RYT, MYMT Spirit Rock, Awake in the Wild Facilitator-in-training).
Sessions are “sign-up as you go” so participants may register for one or all sessions.
None of the sessions, except for the three day silent winter retreat in December 15-17, 2017 (location TBA) require any prior meditation experience. For planning purposes, please register online so we know to expect you. Any profit from the group events is donated to Canadian non-profits protecting the environment.
Sessions will be conducted out of doors so please dress appropriately, with closed-toe shoes, clothing appropriate to the weather, hats etc. Please bring a water bottle to all sessions, and any meditation props that you find to be helpful (meditation cushion or bench, yoga mat, backjack or lightweight chair for sitting practice if needed). Most sessions will include some gentle movement or walking practice so please offer care for yourself around mobility issues.
Sessions indicated with a ** will have hiking in hills or more rigourous physical activity.
Locations for all sessions will have final confirmation at least 24 hours in advance so please check in here for final confirmation on location, or register online, as email notifications on location changes will only be emailed to registered participants.
We look forward to awakening in the wild together.
