IN THE PARK: Play Present

Jun 13, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

| Free

How do we connect with nature in the city?

As we grow more attached to devices, the essential experience of being in nature becomes increasingly rare. How often do we touch the bark of a city tree? Scale a boulder? Using touch, scent, sight, and sound we’ll explore flowers, trees, and grasses we may often walk past without noticing. Through a series of exercises, we’ll awaken our capacity to be with nature directly, playfully, and with a sense of joy.

Led by artist and mindfulness practitioner Sara Overton, who is developing the art project Awake in the Wild Experience with Mark Coleman, author of the book Awake in the Wild.
