Mindful Eating, Meditation & Nature Ramble
with Marlow Shami
Tuesday, Nov. 13, 5:30-7 pm
Mason Library

The food of life is found not only on our plates but also within five integral life areas.

Sustenance is found within the quality of our rest, companionship,

novelty, exercise, and outdoor nature time.

The Mindful Eating Meditation and Nature Ramble program is designed to provide

the experience, information, and inspiration to help deepen understanding and awareness

of the challenges and benefits of cultivating mindfulness of the five food groups of daily life.

Dress comfortably for indoor meditation and outdoor nature ramble.  Our afternoon together

includes a keynote talk, guided meditation, outdoor nature activity,

and nature’s healing touch (a form of energy medicine).

Please register online.
