In our series on ritual and practices, we are focusing on activities in our everyday life that are turning meaningful when certain steps are followed: Intention, attention, and manifestation. Mindfulness means paying attention to and being in the present moment.  In this workshop of Mindfulness in Nature, we are experiencing and learning practices that are enjoyable and relaxing on this Saturday afternoon. We also learn how these practices benefit us in everyday life.

Whether you are new to mindfulness or wish to expand your practice, you will benefit from this workshop on mindfulness meditation and mindfulness in everyday life. Together we will learn and practice sitting meditation, walking meditation, and mindful eating in the beautiful natural setting of Surprise Farm Retreat Center.


The setting provides us with the opportunity to spend time in Mother Nature’s embrace to reflect and enrich our process. We practice letting nature heal us. 

This workshop includes the opportunity for fire-pit storytelling, spending the night in one of our accommodation options and a morning meditation.
