Mindfulness in Nature for Kids and Parents: Finding Wonder in Your Own Backyard

Taking a walk on the wild side, even when it's in the back yard, engages the senses, awakens curiosity, and catalyzes caring.

It's free. It can happen anywhere. No batteries or charging are required. Anyone can do it. It, literally, brings a breath of fresh air into the day. 

When the door is opened with an invitation to discover, the field is set for wonder and connection. Remembering and reconnecting with Nature as teacher, guide, magician, and friend is the cure for what Richard Louv calls "nature-deficit disorder" and the alternative for what is becoming known as the "Indoor Generation". 

Join us for an afternoon of timelessness -- inviting play, creativity, story, and wonder to discover what is living inside and all around us in the natural world.
