With the turning of Spring, BBG has the energies of this season to inspire the beginnings of new growth. As gardeners prepare the soil to plant seeds for the future, BBG will hold a community meditation gathering facilitated by meditation-in-nature guide Sandrine Harris.

This meditation will take place outside in the gardens, with a mix of walking, conversation, guided practices, and time to reflect as we move out of winter’s hibernatory energy. Note: No meditation experience is needed to join us, and we will not be in a single, hour-long guided meditation. There will be pauses, walking (optional), sitting, and conversation. All adults (18+ yrs) are welcome to join us via advance registration.

Sandrine Harris is a trauma-sensitive mindfulness meditation facilitator with a deep interest in sensing our connection within the natural world. She offers a connective and unfolding process within the Berkshires through regular community programs at The Trustees’ properties, Berkshire Natural Resources Council properties, and the Berkshire Botanical Garden.

Sandrine is also a somatic (body-centered) practitioner offering private sessions to process trauma and chronic pain, and workshops/trainings internationally. She is based in the southern Berkshires, and is nourished by meditative experiences outdoors. Her process is collectively known as Emergent Nature.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
