About the Event

Registration required (discounts available for Botanical Garden members)

Join us for an extended meditation practice period in the supportive and beautiful container of the Garden. The morning will include alternating periods of sitting meditation, walking meditation, gentle moving meditation, and Qigong. Charity will also weave in teachings on mindfulness, presence, body awareness, and inter-being. We’ll end with a lunch in community and time for conversation (please bring your own lunch; plant-based or plant-inspired if possible).

Mindfulness and awareness practices can be essential in helping us nurture our capacity to create calm and stability amidst the storms of life, and also to receive those sparks of insight, understanding and wisdom that enable us to stay connected, awake and engaged. Extended periods of practice are especially beneficial.

Please also bring:

  • A journal and something to write with
  • A blanket in case the grass is wet
  • A cushion or chair to sit on for sitting meditation
  • Layers to keep you warm/cool
  • Sun hat/sunscreen
  • Water/snacks/lunch
