Michael Smith, author of Mindfulness in Texas Nature, is leading this workshop.

We’ll take a walk and let go of distractions and stresses. Time spent in nature benefits our mood, thinking, and health, according to many research studies. We can spend some time among the trees and grasses, breathing easily and noticing what it is like to live in the present moment.

The walk is designed for adults and children older than 10. While discussing and practicing mindfulness, we will walk to a couple of locations within the preserve.

We can then take a little time to reflect on what is around us and within us, writing or drawing in a nature journal. Doing this helps us organize our thoughts, adds to our self-understanding, and may benefit our mental wellness in other ways. Bring a notebook and pen and/or pencil!
