Free Community Event - "Mindfulness and Movement"

  • McIntosh Reserve Park 046 W McIntosh Cir Whitesburg, GA 30185 USA (map)

Come join us for this free Community Event!

Our community events are the 1st Sunday of each month from: September 1st –December 1st 2019

Mindfulness does not exist only in quiet, still spaces. Mindfulness surrounds us, and experiencing mindfulness in nature is particularly helpful and beneficial to your health & well-being. Attending to calm surroundings not only connects us to our environment, but to a deeper place in our own being. During this combination of sitting and walking we will practice what it means to be mindful of nature, ourselves, and others while using movement. We will also learn to meditate and learn about the natural world around us through discussion and dialog.

This event is a great excuse to move through nature in an entirely different way and explore what your learning through a deeper outlet.

This event may be for you if you are:

  • Struggling to be mindful, and even for those proficient in meditation.

  • Looking to use mindfulness & movement through nature to ease troubles, issues, stress, and current blockages.

  • Wanting to clear their mind of clutter in order to restore your sense of focus.  

  • Looking for an excuse to get out into nature to experience calmness with others.

What will I get out of this?:

  • Several studies have shown that taking a break to look at or be in nature can have a rejuvenating effect on the brain, helping to free up your mind when you feel stuck and boosting levels of attention.

  • You learn how to Incorporate mindful walking and sitting into your daily life in as little as 5-10 minutes a day by using all of your senses — sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch — to bring awareness to your body and surroundings.
