Mindfulness in Nature Group Daylong Retreat**
Sun, 19 Nov 2017, 9:00 PM – Mon, 20 Nov 2017, 3:00 AM SST
This Mindfulness in Nature Day Retreat will combine indoor, outdoor, seated, movement and interactive practices, all in Noble Silence. This day retreat is the perfect way for both beginner and experienced meditators to deepen their engagement with nature and discover themselves through mindfulness practice in a wilderness environment. The retreat will take place in a Gatineau Park location TBA within one month of the retreat. Lunch and snacks will be included.
The Mindfulness in Nature group sponsored by Wild Blue is based on the book Awake in the Wild: Mindfulness in Nature as a Path of Self Discovery by Spirit Rock Senior Teacher Mark Coleman.
Mindfulness in Nature practices will be guided by mindfulness teacher Kimberly Sogge, Ph.D. (RYT, MYMT Spirit Rock, Awake in the Wild Facilitator-in-training).
Sessions are "sign-up as you go" so participants may register for one or all sessions. None of the sessions, except for the two day winter retreat in December 15-17, 2017 at Voyageur Quest in Algonquin Park require any prior meditation experience. For planning purposes, please register online so we know to expect you.
Sessions will be conducted out of doors so please dress appropriately, with closed-toe shoes, clothing appropriate to the weather, hats etc. Please bring a water bottle to all sessions, and any meditation props that you find to be helpful (cushion, yoga mat, backjack or lightweight chair for sitting practice). Most sessions will include some gentle movement or walking practice so please offer care for yourself around mobility issues.
Sessions indicated with a ** will have hiking in hills or more rigourous physical activity.
Locations for all sessions will have final confirmation at least 24 hours in advance so please check in here for final confirmation on location, or register online, as email notifications on location changes will only be emailed to registered participants.
We look forward to awakening in the wild together.
