Heal in nature with the support of mindfulness to strengthen connection to joy and happiness. Spend the half day retreat exploring meditation practices for the cultivation of joy and healing in nature. Through mindfulness nature meditations, somatic experiencing practices and teaching, you will have an opportunity to find a greater connection to yourself. You will learn ways to cultivate joy and learn skills to integrate these practices into your everyday life that will support your healing journey.
