The Awake in the Wild Meditation in Nature Teacher Training is an apprenticeship training in guiding meditation in nature practice, inspired by the wisdom teachings from the Buddhist tradition, by Mark Coleman’s book Awake in the Wild (AITW) and by the wilderness retreats led by Mark for more than a decade. Nature meditation brings mindful awareness practices into the outdoors as a support for presence, connection, and insight.
Come get away from winter cold and attend a silent kayaking mindfulness retreat in the pristine wilderness of the Sea of Cortez. The retreat will be mostly in silence to support the meditative process, and there will be several periods of meditation daily as well as time for discussion, talks on the themes of meditation in nature, talking circles and opportunities for one to one work with the Mark Coleman. There will also be free time to swim, snorkel and enjoy this spectacular setting.
