Eco Meditation

Eco meditation is an ideal way to become aware of the natural world around us.

Learn and practice Eco Meditation and experience the benefits. These free sessions, run by Greenfriends, are held from 8.00 am - 9.00 am on the fourth Saturday of the month. Each meditation session begins with some light stretching and concludes with Chai and chat. You are also invited to participate in a one-hour clean-up after each meditation, including light jobs such as cleaning, watering, litter collection, planting).

Greenfriends invites you to join them in their program that "inspires love for nature and reinforces the truth that humanity is not different from nature. The life force that pulsates in the trees, plants and animals is the same life force that pulsates within us. The same life energy that gives us the power to speak and to sing is the power behind the song of the bird... nature is not separate from ourselves. Eco meditation helps to re-establish this connection, and that connection is healing."

Greenfriends have put together a short video of Eco Meditation. Watch it here.
