MINDFULNESS IN NATURE

One of the best places to practice mindfulness is in nature. Nature is a place of regeneration and resilience, of learning, peace and escape. It is soothing and a delight to our senses. By tuning in deeply into the rhythm of the natural world, children feel truly connected to Mother Earth and become more attuned to the needs of others living being (plants, animals or other people). 

 

Sidewalk Flowers is a series of nature based mindfulness prompts to share with the children in our lives. Part meditations, part reflections, often disguised as playful games or simple crafts and activities, they are an invitation to restore our sense of presence and connection. To slow down, open up our senses, to notice the flowers growing along the sidewalks.

 

And with that, we help our children (and ourselves!) open up to the wellsprings of wonder, beauty and magic in our everyday life.

Enjoy.

MINDFUL LISTENING - THE LANGUAGE OF BIRDS

By focusing on sound, and keeping distractions at bay by closing our eyes, we create calm within and learn to tune in to the language of Nature.
