KSMOL Presents: A Kripalu Mindful Outdoor Experience
A MOE is designed to help modern people receive the health and well-being associated with mindful time outdoors.  The experience includes a short introduction to the land in order to foster a sense of appreciation, curiosity and gratitude for place.  This is followed by a series of steps to invite awareness into the body and the present moment to awaken the senses and transition to a relaxed state of awareness.  A mindful outdoor experience includes walking with awareness, noticing sensations in relationship to the land and elements, as well as what we call “nature meditations”, in which participants are invited to sit and observe movement and stillness on the land.  The experience concludes with a group share and sometimes a relaxed fire meditation, tea or snacks.

Deep Listening: Forest Bathing
The practice of forest bathing, or Shinrin-Yoku, was developed in Japan in the 1980s as a way for city-dwellers to restore balance to body, mind, and spirit. Research has shown that forests rich in conifers expose walkers to naturally occurring chemicals called phytoncides, which results in reduced blood pressure and cortisol levels, and improved immune function. Explore the forest around Kripalu, and experience the nourishment of your senses and soul with a symphony of engaging outdoor stimulus brilliantly designed to root us in the present moment.

Presence, Power, and the Yoga of Voice
A MOE is designed to help modern people receive the health and well-being associated with mindful time outdoors.  The experience includes a short introduction to the land in order to foster a sense of appreciation, curiosity and gratitude for place.  This is followed by a series of steps to invite awareness into the body and the present moment to awaken the senses and transition to a relaxed state of awareness.  A mindful outdoor experience includes walking with awareness, noticing sensations in relationship to the land and elements, as well as what we call “nature meditations”, in which participants are invited to sit and observe movement and stillness on the land.  The experience concludes with a group share and sometimes a relaxed fire meditation, tea or snacks.
