Nature in Mind
One day

 

This one-day workshop will introduce some key principles and practices of Mindful Nature connection and ecopsychology. We will be alternating our time spent outside and being indoors. We will explore the following together;

  • What is Ecopsychology? Introducing the background and a framework of ecopsychology and of the relationship this field has with our current times.

  • How do we experientially connect with nature using mindfulness? Multiple practices, led by Lee, throughout the day that will enable this connection

  • You will learn the Key principles and methods of mindful nature connection such as; staying curious, just being, anchoring, trusting, allowing what is here, sensing wonder

  • Mindful wandering: giving ourselves permission to be present in Nature while developing the intention to pay attention, with all the attitudes of mindfulness as we walk slowly or sit.

  • Expanding awareness: making the connection between our inner wellbeing and that of the world around us.

  • Reflecting and connecting as a group.

 

The day will include periods of silence, as well as guided mindfulness, traditional teaching, nature connection practices, poetry readings, and group reflection.

 

No previous experience of ecopsychology or mindfulness required.
