In the storms of our lives, we need refuge – nourishment and support – a place to replenish our tired bodies and troubled hearts. When the Buddha taught meditation, his first instruction was to go sit under a tree. We will practice together in the age-old tradition of being outside in the company of the natural world. We will explore tapping into the natural stillness and dynamism that surrounds us outdoors and can teach us balance. As we integrate the stillness and movement, we will move toward being active participants in the world, while maintaining balance and ease in our hearts and minds.
