Nature Journaling & Mindfulness Outdoors

Sunday, November 14, 2021 at 10:00am to 12:30pm

URI Botanical Gardens and Greenhouses

At the heart of nature journaling and the mindful outdoor experience comes an opportunity to get outside while going within. In the workshop, you will be guided through a mindful outdoor experience, a walk that includes invitations for observation, and a sitspot, all meant to deepen your awareness of your surroundings in nature's soothing atmosphere. You will gain inspiration from the living earth for your journaling. 

The second part of the program includes simple visual arts demonstrations capturing objects on paper, plus writing prompts. Please come with an open mind and curiosity about the ever-present moment and what it might have to offer!

Instructor: Anni Barnard, Art Educator, Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Kripalu Mindfulness Outdoors Guide.
