About the Workshop

The Bio-Nature-Based Contemplation workshop is a four-week 60-minute encounter to cultivate the body, heart, and mind alignment with bio elements and beings of nature. This is a concentration, attention, and mindfulness meditation training workshop on the internal and external practice of embodied mind with other beings and the environment, the planet, and the universe. We will start each session with formal calm-abiding meditation using the breath, embodied, deconstructive, and visualization meditation methods, and contemplative creative practices. The contemplative creative approaches are introduced as an adjunct to your mindfulness, awareness, and insight meditation practice.
