Day in Nature with Mindfulness and Self Compassion

With Susan Bednarick

July 24, 2024

Treat yourself to the proven benefits of self compassion meditation which can include: stress reduction, emotional health, enhanced self-awareness, increased attention span, improved memory, kindness, improved sleep, pain reduction and blood pressure reduction. 

Pair this meditation with time spent in nature, which has been found to elicit almost identical benefits, and you will leave rejuvenated with new tools to soothe your nervous system.

This day will include group time as well as time on your own to enjoy a summer afternoon of quiet reflection. Walk the prayer path with new awareness, rest in the embrace of the labyrinth or sit and listen at the water’s edge. 

Lunch is provided.

“I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side.” -Maya Angelou
