Through The Art of Mindfulness, we are dedicated to exploring the inner and outer landscapes of the mind and the human experience. Through nature-based mindfulness meditation, we are able to explore mindfulness concepts that are reflected back to us through our interactions with the natural world. With a dedication to social-emotional growth through practicing mindfulness in the insight meditation tradition, we are able to gain new perspectives as nature-based mindfulness reveals and inspires ways to live in greater harmony with the natural stages and rhythms of life.

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.
