Join Sheldrake and One Small Stone for a 3-week series designed to help you see the natural world with fresh eyes. Through both mindfulness and drawing exercises, participants will be guided to more fully observe and experience our natural environment. The program will be co-led by a Sheldrake artist-naturalist and Katy Romita, a mindfulness-meditation instructor, to promote a multi-perspective experience.
Designed for adults, this program reconnects participants to a sense of wonder and playfulness—regardless of how artistic or mindful participants consider themselves.
Each 90-minute session will include:
– Meditation and mindfulness exercises
– Guided exercises for observing and drawing from nature
– Community conversation and connection
– Meaningful time in nature
Dates: Fridays – September 23-October 7 (3 sessions)
Times: 9:00-10:30 am
Location: Sheldrake Environmental Center
Please register. Advance registration required.

Participant cancellation requires a minimum of one week’s notice (in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org), and a 25% cancellation fee will be charged. No refunds will be issued under other circumstances, including missed sessions.
