We are so glad you are interested in joining our workshop! 


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. 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.

Please plan to attend both sessions if you register. Pre-registration is required for participation in this workshop. Registration will close on Monday 11/7. Once you have been registered for the workshop we will send materials and information for the workshop on Monday 11/7 via email.


When: Tuesdays from 3-4:30pm, 11/8 and 11/15

Meeting #1 11/8/2022:  The what and how skills of nature-based mindfulness. Learning to transition from “thinking” to “sensing” and from “doing” to “being” which will help facilitate nonjudgmental present-moment focus, connection, self-reflection, and centering. Experiential practice of nature-based mindfulness at the Rhododendron garden (students can enter free with Reed ID card).

Meeting #2 11/15/2022:  Deepening your ecotherapy practice through relational protocols and practicing mindfulness with the canyon at Reed. We will also discuss ancestral introduction, land acknowledgement, and identifying personal proximity to unearned privilege and violence inflicted by colonization. We will explore metaphors to facilitate self-reflection, connection and reciprocity with nature.
