Awake in the Wild – Mindfulness Practices and the Joy & Peace of Meditation in Nature
May 1 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT| USD $45 – USD $200
Like the Buddha, people for millennia have sought refuge in the refuge of the natural world. In this tranquil and rejuvenating day, we will explore how meditation is supported by the stillness of nature as we spend the day in sitting and walking meditation in the beautiful hills and meadows of Spirit Rock.
Through various nature meditation practices we will utilize the quality of mindfulness – to support us being present to our direct experience and the earth around us. By learning from nature’s perennial wisdom teachings on impermanence, interconnection, and letting go we can learn to be responsive to whatever condition we encounter.
As it is springtime, we will be surrounded by opening to beauty and how nature evokes many sublime qualities of joy, peace, wonder and love. And with love arises the wish to take care of what we love. The day will include discussion, guided meditation, and periods of guided silent practice.
All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
