Meditating in the wild allows you to utilize all of your senses and the sensory environment as a support for being present. From that intimate connection, you can develop insight, clarity and a visceral understanding of knowing one’s place in the web of life. By doing so, the wisdom of nature is easily revealed.
Utilizing various mindfulness practices outdoors allows you to touch a sense of joy, wonder, love and connection. It is a way to wake up to the preciousness of this moment and the beauty of the earth we all share. Out of that connection can arise a deep care for the planet and a desire to live in greater harmony and sustainability.
