This 4-week Practice Group will explore mindfulness-based tools and methods for working with our "inner critic": the voice inside that can often be harsh and judgmental toward ourselves and others. Students will learn evidence-based mindfulness tools for gaining new perspective and cultivating an inner voice with more curiosity, warmth, and kindness.
This 4-week Practice Group will explore how mindfulness can help us to connect with nature as a way to support wellbeing. We will learn meditation practices for connecting with natural elements (earth, air, fire, water) as a way of feeling a greater sense of belonging as part of the natural world. We will meet outdoors and explore methods including sitting meditation, mindful walking, sensory awareness practice, and contemplative observation of the natural world.
