NZ Waterfall_MC

Sometimes, in the rush and storm of our lives we lose connection with ourselves, our hearts and each other. In this workshop we will use mindfulness and compassion practices in a beautiful natural environment to open a gentle space in which we can use the deep resources of nature to come back to our hearts and to our essential selves.

You will have the opportunity to explore on your own in nature in mini quests, with partners and within group activities. You’ll make natural mandalas and wild temples, use movement practices and commune with stones and trees to explore your deepest sense of yourself and what you are doing here

In this workshop you will learn to:

  • Use nature and mindfulness to deepen your compassion for yourself and for others
  • Go on a search in the bush, by the water and on the fields to find what is really important to you
  • Utilize mindfulness to expand your experience of yourself and the natural environment
  • Employ movement and art outdoors to more deeply explore the inner workings of your psyche and integrate new material and insight
  • Discover in nature how you hold yourself back from yourself and life
