CONNECT MINDFULLY WITH NATURE
When: Saturday 24 August 10:30am – 12:30 pm.
Where: Angophora Reserve, Avalon. We will meet at
the entrance on Palmgrove road
(see map at bottom for more details).
Nature is in constant flow in the present moment. Light filters through the trees and glimmers on the moving leaves. Bird sounds arise in the distance and gently fall away. Water peacefully flows over rocks.
It has been proved that there are numerous physical, mental and emotional benefits from being in nature. It calms your nervous system, reduces stress and boosts your immune system.
We will immerse ourselves in
nature where you will be invited through gentle guidance to open up to the
beauty of the present moment.
We will explore the following:
· How to use your senses of sight, smell, touch and hearing to become even more present in nature.
· Using mindfulness to recognise when you are labelling objects as opposed to simply noticing what arises in the moment.
· Letting go into the present moment to explore your spacious connection with nature and heightened senses that may arise.
· Guided open awareness mindfulness meditation.
In the walk we will mindfully practice ‘being’ instead of ‘doing’. Therefore the walk will be more like a slow wander as opposed to a strenuous bushwalk. The walking track will at times be uneven so suitable walking shoes are recommended.
Cost: $30 per person which is payable before the walk into my bank account. Please contact me for the details.
Note the walk will be limited to 5 people- place reserved on payment.
