Naturally Mindful (6 week course) at Kortright Centre    Fri Mar 29, 2019, Vaughan, ON

This unique 6-week course will help you to cultivate the practice and attitudes of mindfulness meditation in daily life by learning from your own experiences and from the wisdom of nature.

Cultivating mindfulness enhances our ability to connect with nature and reinforces its benefits. Practicing mindfulness in nature can help us get to know ourselves better, learn to more easily switch from the busy “doing” (reactive) mode to “being” (responsive) mode, and support healing. In turn, we develop greater awareness, insight and trust in ourselves, as well as learn to meet ourselves and our experiences with wisdom and kindness.

Each two-hour session includes teachings, guided practices indoors and outdoors, periods of silence, journaling, and group discussion. In the tradition of most mindfulness courses, this course includes a day-long silent retreat (further information about the retreat will be given in the course). Participants will be given a folder. Each week, handouts and readings will be added. There will be suggested home practices given weekly.

This winter edition may also incorporate snowshoeing. Participants should be dressed appropriate to the winter weather as all sessions will involve being outdoors for part of the session.
