The 3-Day Mindfulness in Nature contemplative hiking retreat was a huge success! Participants of the retreat enjoyed pleasant weather, nutritious vegetarian food prepared by local chef Sandy Robinson, quiet and natural surroundings and indoor lodging at Syzygy House. We did activities and discussions around the concepts of mindfulness, beginner’s mind, the New Cosmology, setting intentions and opening up to nature’s omens. We also did a short night hike, where we talked about discomforts and fears around nature, and darkness, and being alone in the woods. We began the morning with a little bit of light yoga and some sitting meditation, as well.
The weekend was both relaxing and educational. Please keep checking back at the “Upcoming Workshops” link to learn about future retreats, or sign up for my newsletter on the home page.
