Healing Through Nature: A guided meditation for the senses.”

As spiritual beings living a human experience, we have the power to balance our nervous system through mindful connection with nature. When situations or events occur that are contrary to our sensibilities, our nervous system responds, and we experience varying degrees of stress. This presentation will provide an overview of mindfulness for calming, or de-escalating the nervous-system.

Participants will be led in a guided 5-senses nature meditation. Following the presentation, attendees will receive a reflective journal to continue their healing journey and strengthen their somatic connection with nature.
