Mindfulness and Nature Winter Renewal Weekend -Being in the Wild (Lin Gordon and Lee Steppacher)
February 16 - February 19
Every season has its unique gifts. As a season for deep rest and renewal, winter provides us a unique opportunity to step away from our active life and come into deep introspection and regenerate. To help you come into a deeper rhythm with the natural world, Lin Gordon and Lee Steppacher will weave nature meditation practices throughout the weekend – spending extended time outside on walks and observing the natural world, participating in guided meditation practices to open our sense of awareness, and sinking deeply into our connection to the world around us. We hope to cultivate a receptive quality to the gifts and lessons offered by nature. The weekend will be held primarily in silence allowing you to listen to the still, small voice within. There will be opportunities for limited discussion and questions, and talks will be offered as guidance. Guided body movement will also be offered daily. Activities will not be strenuous, but significant time will be spent outdoors. Appropriate outerwear will be needed. This weekend is appropriate for people with all levels of experience. No prior meditation experience needed.
