We're back at the BBG! Our first in-person class here since late 2019. Fingers crossed we will also be back in the Fall for a Saturday Forest Bathing in the Ravine class on Oct 1st.
Mindfulness in the Garden: Basking in Summer's Beauty
Wednesday July 7, 9:30 - 11
While we stroll slowly through the vibrant Summer Garden, we will focus on opening our senses and allowing ourselves to fully engage and awaken to the combined healing power of nature and present awareness. Utilizing elements of Mindfulness Meditation and Shinrin-Yoku (Japanese Forest Bathing), we will cleanse our mind, body, and spirit, creating a feeling of inner spaciousness, and stillness.
Participants will be asked to wear masks and socially distance where possible

This small botanic garden is a hidden gem at the north end of Lake Washington. The founders are the authors of Gardening with Native Plants of the Pacific Northwest, a classic gardening guide. Jessica Hancock will be teaching regularly here in 2021. Check the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden website for the latest happenings or to sign up for the newsletter
We will let you know when the next class is scheduled soon!
We hope to be teaching every season at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, including some longer Saturday Forest Bathing in the Ravine classes. We are also hoping to add classes at Soos Creek Botanical Garden and some new locations as well.
Most of our classes are filling up weeks in advance. To find out about them before anyone else, sign up for our newsletter HERE.
For those looking for a longer, more immersive experience, this may be for you! A Shinrin-yoku (Japanese Forest Bathing) walk typically requires at least 3 hours, preferably in a quiet, wild natural setting away from urban distractions. More info soon!
If you have any ideas or suggestions of where we could teach a future class or if you have a favorite wandering spot you'd like to share, please let us know.
We'd also love to tell you more about individual Mindful in the Wild sessions.
