Awake in the Wild: Mindfulness in Nature as a Path to Self Discovery

by Mark Coleman

“In nature we can feel a living connection with life all around us. Being outdoors we can taste how we are held and nourished exquisitely by the intricate web of life that is supporting us in every moment, every breath. It helps us to discover our place in the scheme of things and, perhaps, to realize we are already whole. Intimacy with nature can both heal us and teach us to be in harmony and at peace with ourselves and the world.”

~Mark Coleman, from Awake in the Wild: Mindfulness in Nature as a Path of Self Discovery

In this book group, we will go outside and try some of the practices described in the book. We will begin in the Dharma Center for our first meeting, then we might venture out to the Glen, Ellis Pond, or local gardens to experience practices that connect us more deeply to the natural world around us and within us. Come with walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.
