Gardening and Mindfulness

For beginner and seasoned gardeners alike.

Kripalu is proud to partner with the Berkshire Botanical Garden to offer a unique exploration of the intersection of gardening activities and mindfulness practice. For anyone who has created a home garden or tilled the soil, whether in a plot or a container, the meditative qualities of gardening are naturally evident. You often find yourself connected to the present moment, senses engaged directly with the earth, lost in the calming act of planting and cultivating.

In this program, you experience

  • Daily workshops on basic gardening skills, including seed starting and container garden techniques
  • Walking tours of the Kripalu campus and Berkshire Botanical Garden
  • Meditation classes focused on mindfulness practices and how to apply them at home
  • Gentle group yoga and movement sessions.

Join us to discover a whole new way to practice this ancient and joyous activity.
