Garden Your Way to Mindfulness
Have you wondered what it means to be “mindful” or how you can be more mindful in your own life? Gardeners often experience moments of intense concentration when working with their plants, and this ability to focus is at the heart of the practice of mindfulness.

Bountiful Gardens, 1536 Lower Ferry Road, Ewing NJ 08618
About The Event
Join us in the main Greenhouse of Bountiful Gardens Ewing as we fully experience the garden environment that surrounds us and learn how to use techniques of focus and breathing to improve our health and well-being through mindfulness. In this hands-on workshop, therapist Marianne Kunze, LSCW will guide us through simple exercises that can be interjected into even the busiest day. Participants will be provided a container and supplies to create a simple terrarium garden that they can use as a reminder to practice what they learned and to apply these techniques as you absorb yourself in the feel, smell, and visual pleasure of creating a micro-garden... mindfully!
This is a rain or shine event located in our Greenhouse at Bountiful Gardens in Ewing. Participation will involve working with some soil, so bring gloves if you'd like. Ticket price includes participation in the seminar and supplies for creating a simple terrarium garden. Please come early and experience the greenhouse!
