A MINDFUL IMMERSION IN NATURE FOR HEALING PEOPLE AND THE PLANET
There’s no separation. We are nature and nature is us.
Be Nature Retreat. Join us for an experiential journey of mindful communion with nature.
NEXT RETREATS: April 15, July 1 & September 16, 2023 – Saturdays, from sunrise to sunset.
This daylong workshop/ semi-silent retreat is an invitation to explore embodied mindfulness and contemplative practices immersed in natural environments. The intention is to both deepen curiosity, connection, and communion with nature as a means to healing ourselves, and our relationships with others and our natural spaces.
We live in a world ridden by disconnection, disempowerment, and dis-ease, and many of us are working under a veil of eco-grief, climate anxiety, and serial collective traumatic events. Returning to nature is a way to return to ease, to stabilize our ecosystem, and to remember that we embody the same hope and resilience of nature.
This retreat is open to eco-activists and anyone who would like to restore their connection to nature and themselves. Must be 18 or over to participate. Weather permitting, we will be spending most of the time outdoors. Participants are encouraged to arrive early and dress in layers.
