December 17: Virtual Meditative Plant Tour of the Gardens
Take a mindful, virtual walk among plants. As we pause, we engage with the images of plants and use our sense memory to connect with nature: imagine the warmth of the sun on your skin, the sounds of birdsong and hum of insects, and the scents of flowers and earthy bark. There is an abundance of life all around us that we are sometimes too busy to notice.
This is also an opportunity to see what is blooming at the Gardens.
Price: Complimentary, advanced registration required.
Instructors: Catharine McCord
