MBNE – Mindfulness-based Nature Experience

A 6 Week Mindfulness in Nature Meditation Course

Hosted Live on Zoom (Sessions will be Recorded)

Course Overview

Join us for this live online course that explores accessible and powerful meditation practices in the beauty of nature. Each week we will guide participants in various nature meditations that allow people to refine their meditation practice, deepen their awareness of the natural world, and open up to qualities of delight, insight, and awe. We will also give short talks on various mindfulness in nature themes as well as offer times for discussion and inquiry.

You will learn to cultivate many beautiful nature practices including foundational techniques like breathing with nature, arriving practice, mindfulness of body outdoors, and listening meditation. You will also learn sensory awareness meditations and how to practice meditation as a meandering practice with various points of focus such as orientating toward curiosity, love, or open awareness. You will explore heart-based meditations like gratitude practice, loving and being loved meditation, and there will be wisdom meditations on the 4 elements, interconnection, knowing and being known meditation, and a host of other accessible and powerful contemplative practices.
