Week 5: Healing Qualities of Nature
Wed, June 14
Healing involves the body, mind and spirit. Through guided meditation walks in nature, we boost energy with better breathing, release endorphins that make life brighter and stimulate enhanced immune functions.
Week 6: Being Present
Wed, June 21
In a world of distractions and competing demands, a meditation practice focusing on the present moment enhances rest and rejuvenation. Join us as we explore the powerful benefits of practicing mindfulness with our breath and steps amid the serenity of the garden.
Week 7: Gratitude
Wed, June 28
A gratitude practice opens our hearts to the endless potential life offers. When we practice gratitude, we rewire our brain to focus on peace and prosperity. Gratitude is an emotion of connectedness reminding us we are part of a larger universe with all sentient beings.
Week 8: Life Cycles
Wed, July 5
Throughout the whole of life, we experience the yin and yang of our existence. We strive for purpose and meaning yet recognize the impermanence of all that is. We seek predictability while understanding change is inevitable.
