Start the year by learning ways to focus on the present moment, reduce stress, and observe nature in a new way! The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) invites the public to an introduction to mindfulness in nature with Tim Blair of The Mindful Nonprofit on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 6 p.m. Tim will introduce participants to how mindfulness can help change their relationship to the stressors in their lives, and he will demonstrate how being in nature can provide wonderful opportunities to explore this practice.
Whether brand new or experienced with practicing mindfulness, this virtual session will give useful tools to start or expand your practice. Tim’s presentation will be held indoors over Zoom, however the exercises he will share can easily be practiced in the outdoors while hiking on a KELT trail, visiting a park, or walking in a backyard. The beauty of mindfulness is that with practice, it can be done by anyone, anywhere, at any time and can bring clarity to the mind, bring calm to the body, and help keep the attention focused even when life becomes difficult or challenging.
Registration is free and required in order to receive the Zoom link for the presentation. The Zoom link will be sent out to registrants before the event. For more information and to sign-up, visit KELT’s website at www.kennebecestuary.org/upcoming-events or call (207) 442-8400.
