Nature and Mindfulness Winter Woods

For everyone.

Kripalu and Mass Audubon are proud to offer programs that explore the intersection of mindfulness practices with an appreciation and understanding of the natural world. This unique approach to outdoor skills through the lens of mindful, meditative observation opens the door to an entirely new way of viewing nature and its inhabitants.

Embark on a snowshoeing adventure to discover the hidden life of winter mammals and birds, and the fascinating world of the late-winter forest. In this program, you

  • Snowshoe on some of the most popular trails in the Berkshires (snowshoes and poles provided)
  • Learn animal tracking techniques, sign recognition, and tree identification
  • Experience the healing qualities of forest bathing
  • Observe winter birds in their natural habitat
  • Enjoy gentle yoga and movement classes indoors.

Come enjoy the peaceful calm of snow-covered trails as you develop both observation and mindfulness skills in the great outdoors.
