Mindfulness in Nature: Finding Wonder in Your Backyard

This retreat is for kids ages 9-11 and their parent— a collaboration between MBMS & The Lyceum of Monterey County.

Taking a walk on the wild side, even when it's in the backyard, engages the senses, awakens curiosity, and catalyzes caring.

It's free. It can happen anywhere. No batteries or charging are required. Anyone can do it. It, literally, brings a breath of fresh air into the day.

When the door is opened with an invitation to discover, the field is set for wonder and connection. Remembering and reconnecting with Nature as teacher, guide, magician, and friend is the cure for what Richard Louv calls "nature-deficit disorder" and the alternative for what is becoming known as the "Indoor Generation.”

Join us for a morning of timelessness— inviting play, creativity, story, and and wonder to discover what is living inside and all around us in the natural world.
