Mindful Nature Daylong In The Canyon

Teacher(s):
Date(s):
Aug 26 (Sat)
Time:
10:00am - 5:00pm
Location:
InsightLA Benedict Canyon
Description:
We will explore the five elements (earth, water, fire, air and space) and intentional time in nature as a portal to embodiment, connection and stillness.

We pull from ancient Yogic and Buddhist texts, use simple embodiment exercises, silent meditation on each of the elements, time for discussion of their relevance in the lives we are living, journaling and simply being quiet and present with nature.

Part of the intention is to help us to remember our connection to nature, grounded in the belief that as we spend intentional, nourishing time in the natural world we feel more whole, grounded, expansive, easeful and connected. We recognize that when we feel at home in the world will make compassionate choices around climate change, personal relationships and the global situation....a deep belief that the more we feel a part of the whole the more our choices and actions reflect connection rather than separation.
We will spend the day outside deeply diving into an experiential understanding and exploration of each of the elements.

For all levels of yoga and meditation experience. We will spend the entire time outside so dress appropriately and bring snacks, lunch and water. Sunscreen and bug spray suggested, cushion or small beach chair may make your day more comfortable if sitting on the ground is not comfortable.
