Mindfulness in Nature
Cultivating Embodied Awareness

A 4-week Experiential Meditation in Nature Program

On-Demand Course Hosted by Sangha Live

Ancient wisdom teachings, including those of the Buddha, ask humans to pay attention to the richness of life on our planet, to offer gratitude for all that we receive, and to care for all living things. And yet, while the earth calls for our attention, our focus is lost in digital screens and indoor living. As a result, we feel deeply disconnected, distracted, and dulled. We also fail to respond wisely as the earth and its species suffer greatly.

The good news? We can reawaken our sensory awareness by stepping out into any natural setting and skillfully expanding the field of our attention. Through meditation in the natural world, we can open our minds and hearts, and form a deeper connection with all living things.
