Stress and worry are parts of the mind, unpleasant feelings that arise in response to challenging situations. Meditation can help us to develop a more productive set of responses so that we free ourselves of these unhelpful mental habits.

This outdoor meditation class will include guided meditations and practical teachings on how to apply meditation to all our daily activities. It will be a perfect introduction to mindfulness meditation.



If we have to cancel because of weather, we’ll email you and give you the option to get a refund or to come to the rain-date class.

*Note:  An email will go out to those who are registered on the day of the class confirming whether the class will happen that day, or if we need to postpone due to weather. If we need to postpone, the rain date is currently set to Sunday November 1st from 4pm to 5:15pm.  (Please note that this is after Daylight Savings Time ends, and the time is one hour earlier for this reason.)

What to bring:
– mosquito repellent
– Your own mat, cushion, folding chair, blanket, etc (consider that the grass may be wet)
– Mask

Safety stuff:
– All of us will sit 8 feet apart in marked spots.
– Please wear your mask for the duration of the time you’re on site, from the time you leave your car until you get back in.
