Mindful NaturePosted by Lloyd Mitchell
The amount of noise in today’s world continues to grow, and sometimes we forget the genuine peace of the nature around us. Recently, seventh graders embarked on a mindful activity designed to help attune their senses to their surroundings. Each seventh grader chose a spot around the field area or woods where they were out of sight and earshot of each other and spent 25 minutes simply listening and reconnecting. At the end of the 25 minutes, they came back together to talk about what the experience was like and as always, many became much more aware of the nature around them! We plan to do this activity again in the winter when the elements play a role in the nature around us and for a longer period of time. The experience was enriching for all!
