The visualization and sound of moving water is often used in meditation. But why imagine water flow, when we can visit the park and experience the real deal?! Join meditation instructor Bhumi as we take a short hike to Fairmount Park’s tributary creeks and small waterfalls, spread out in seated positions at water’s edge, and collectively meditate accompanied by the reassuring rhythmic sounds of the flowing water. This class will connect you to nature and develop your meditative practice. Bhumi will help you find your breath in tune with the creek’s flow so you can let troublesome thoughts wash away downstream.
