Location: Fair Harvest Permaculture Farm, Margaret River, Western Australia.
Explore the foundations of traditional and contemporary mindfulness practices, contemplative meditative exercises, nature immersion, and simplistic creative activities that help us remember and re-integrate a healthy relationship to daily life and the natural living World.
Mindfulness is the practice of seeing, acknowledging, and understanding our experiences with greater friendship, kindness, and care. When we listen deeply and lovingly to our relationship with ourselves, we are remembering and reconnecting with the sacred relationship we have with the natural living world. We are nature living, an inseparable interbeing.
