We might not be able to cut ourselves off from the busyness of our lives, but we can always connect ourselves back to the rhythms of the natural world. Craving more moments of calm but not sure where to start — this workshop is for you!In this workshop we develop mindfulness/self-regulation skills using guided meditation, reflective journaling, and exploring High Park intentionally. Through use of themes and natural elements we have access to everyday, participants will learn skills that support one's ability to self-regulate, reduce stress, and mirror the slowness of nature.
