Mindfulness meditation has been clinically demonstrated to increase relaxation, relieve stress, reduce anxiety and bolster self-esteem. CEOs, attorneys, healthcare professionals, educators, and the military are paying attention. The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Time Magazine are putting mindfulness on the front page. Modern science is learning that the ancient spiritual practice of meditation is relevant to addressing complex modern problems.

Wandering in Nature Workshop
This program is a threshold crossing into a greater ecological awareness, an opening into a wilder consciousness informed by cloud, tree, hawk, moon and butterfly. Through several delicious wandering invitations on the land we will experience and deepen our innate membership in the larger Earth community of which we are embedded. We’ll address the world as if it were alive, ensouled and saturated with its own intelligence (which it is). We’ll enter a universe alive with mystery and possibility.
