Event description

Description

A blend of nature play and mindfulness themed activities for families in the beautiful and peaceful setting of Old Park Meadow.

Staff at Old Park Meadow , a natural burial ground which opened this Autumn, are ensuring that the natural habitat provided there for local wildlife continues to thrive throughout the spring, summer, autumn and winter- an ideal blend between an attractive overall landscape and a healthy level of biodiversity.

The date of our session is specially chosen to reflect the setting and time of year- marking the arrival of a new season- Spring, the Spring Equinox - celebrating the return of the light, hope, resilience, living in the moment, gratitude and celebrating the gift of life.

We will practise some yoga poses relating to nature for example the tree pose and we do a cloud meditation , seeing what shapes we can see in the sky.

We go for a walking meditation taking time to notice things on the path as we pass by. We collect items lying on the ground and make a mandala using the finds and take a gallery walk to visit each other’s work of art. http://www.centrum-mandala.cz/en/mandala

We choose a sit spot and for a few minutes let nature settle and use our senses to connect to nature enjoying the moment.

There will be nature themed mindfulness colouring in.

We can make a dream catcher from twigs and feathers. Native Americans believe they protect us from bad dreams and nightmares.

Children can also make a lavender bag to put under their pillow. Lavender has calming and soothing properties and helps you sleep.
