Nature Meditations

Where the love of nature, mindfulness meditation, and the art of giving voice to the natural world through photography come together.

Through The Art of Mindfulness, we are dedicated to exploring the inner and outer landscapes of the human experience, the natural world, and life on Earth. Nature-based mindfulness meditation, helps us to explore concepts that are reflected back to us through our interactions with the natural world. These practices illuminate new perspectives and reveal and inspire ways to live in greater harmony with the natural stages and rhythms of life.

Nature Based Mindfulness Practice

NBMP: Nature-Based Mindfulness Practice

Nature-based mindfulness practice is unique in that you can attune to all of your senses with an open quality of awareness. This allows the meditator to connect more deeply with the inner workings of the mind while simultaneously developing a deeper sense of appreciation for the benefits of being quietly and contemplatively immersed in nature. Nature-based practice offers a unique opportunity to strengthen awareness of one’s present-moment experience without all the distractions of modern-day life. In this way, it is much easier to develop a sense of awe and wonder of life on Earth and a desire and inspiration for ways to live in greater harmony with the natural rhythms of life.
