About the event
Join me for a morning of relaxation and restoration in the beauty of the garden. We'll alternate between guided and silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, and gentle Qigong practice.
Charity will also weave in teachings on mindfulness, presence, body awareness, and inter-being. We’ll end with a lunch in community and time for conversation (please bring your own lunch; plant-based or plant-inspired if possible).
Mindfulness and awareness practices can be essential in helping us nurture our capacity to create calm and stability amidst the storms of life, and also to receive those sparks of insight, understanding and wisdom that enable us to stay connected, awake and engaged. Extended periods of practice are especially beneficial.
Please also bring:
A journal and something to write with
A blanket in case the grass is wet
A cushion or chair to sit on for sitting meditation
Layers to keep you warm/cool
Something to contribute to our Earth alter (you'll be able to bring your item back home)
