      EVENT DETAILS
      Nature Mindfulness Together: Monthly Family Adventure

      Uplevel Your Outdoor and Family Time with this exciting new monthly program!

      Join Life and Nature-based Coach Tracie Beasley for this playful monthly youth and family friendly introduction to nature mindfulness and self care. If you yearn for more "you time" and/or quality time with your family, then this event is for you! If you or your child experiences anxiety or high stress, this program may also become one of your favorite "tools" in your self-care toolbag.

      We've learned that being in nature can lower our blood pressure, increase healthy hormones in our bodies, lower cortisole, reduce physical tension, release electricity from our bodies, and more. Nature can also be tremendously healthy for our minds, so much so that doctors in some countries are now PRESCRIBING time in nature to their patients!

      Each month, you will experience mindfulness nature activities that shift your thoughts from your "worries" or your "to do lists" (adults and older kids) and into a calm, curious, and even playful space. You and your children will also learn how to tune into your intuition (I like to call it your soul) for answers by increasing your connection with nature.

      Our minds and bodies often become wearly from intense singular focus (classrooms, work, electronics). By tuning in to ALL that we see, hear, smell and feel while out in nature, we bring relief to our weariness, AND we increase our ability to tune into our bodies, or emotions, and our own self care needs.

      Who knew that "walking like a fox", "talking to trees" (or birds, or streams, etc), sunbathing in a pile of leaves, "supersoaking" our senses, and taking time to be still could be so healthy and bonding?! Bonus-through discovering the magic of "sit spot" and you and your family will discover and practice mindful reflection, that creates beautiful opportunities to engage with each other in deeply meaningful ways.
