No matter where we are and what we’re doing, Mother Earth is always supporting us. This is easy to forget when our minds are overloaded and our nervous systems triggered. Taking time to consciously reconnect with the soothing energy and boundless beauty of nature is a quick and powerful way to get grounded, present, and revitalized. Practicing mindfulness outside also helps us perceive our surroundings with fresh eyes and childlike wonder, bringing more magic, gratitude, and light-hearted joy into our lives.
This 10-minute sitting meditation created by Katie Dutcher—a meditation teacher and certified mindful outdoor guide—will guide you to “plant” yourself, open all of your senses, and appreciate your planet anew. You will tap into the colors, textures, smells, and sounds, as well as the qualities of the air and light that surround you. Enjoy!
