Event Series Event Series: Mindful Mornings at the Arboretum

Mindful Mornings at the Arboretum

March 10 2022 from 9:30 am 10:30 am

Thursday mornings from March 3 to April 28, skipping March 17 for Spring Break 
$10 member / $15 nonmember (per class) 
Instructor: Heather Sullivan 
Ages 12 and up

Join us for weekly mindfulness lessons in nature inspired by the “Forest Bathing” movements in South Korea and Japan. Restorative time in nature helps us to reground and find respite from our modern, hectic lives. Mindfulness teaches us how to be fully present and engaged in the moment, aware of our thoughts and feelings without distraction or judgment. Each week will focus on a different theme like grounding, breath, and emotions – building your skills across the eight-week series – but you can also take classes individually. 

These classes have sold out for the Spring.

Masks are optional. This class will take place mostly outdoors RAIN OR SHINE. Please dress for the weather and wear walking shoes.  

Instructor bio: Heather has trained with Mindful Schools, the UCLA marc Program, and is a certified mindfulness instructor by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach through the Awareness Training Institute and the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California at Berkeley. She is also a member of the International Mindfulness Teachers Association. You can follow her on Instagram @mindfulgreenhouston or Facebook @mindfulgreen. 

The Arboretum grounds, including the trails and Nature Playscape, will REOPEN on Thursday, July 18! All classes and events through Sunday, July 21 have been cancelled, and the Nature Center building remains closed at this time.
