This workshop is skills based and experiential. We will practice mindfulness in nature-settings to strengthen your relationship with nature and facilitate reflection, connection, and reciprocity. Two sessions will be skills-focused instruction outdoors and two sessions will be outdoor experiential sessions. Additional information about meeting locations will be provided to registered participants. Each session will be up to 60 minutes in length. The outdoor experiential sessions will include walking on uneven and/or muddy paths in the Reed Canyon, and meeting at the Rhododendron Garden near Reed! The outdoor meetings will continue if it is raining (please dress accordingly and bring any personal items such as an umbrella, if desired). In the event of extreme weather, the participants will be contacted directly.

This will be a four-part series. Please plan to attend all four sessions if you register. Pre-registration is required for participation in this workshop. Registration will close on Monday 10/3/22.
