Heal in nature with the support of heart meditation practices. Spend the day learning and exploring meditation practices for growth and healing in nature. Through mindfulness nature heart meditations, somatic experiencing practices, teaching, journaling, community, and support, you will have an opportunity to find a greater connection to yourself. You will learn ways to cultivate a greater sense of peace, equanimity in the challenging times, ways to open your heart and learn skills to integrate these practices into your everyday life that will support your healing journey. We will use the community and healing of Wild Willow’s farm to support the healing of the body, mind, and heart.
