Full moon meditation at Maplewood State Park

“When we get closer to nature—be it untouched wilderness or a backyard tree—we do our overstressed brains a favor” reports National Geographic.

We live busy, active lives. So busy, many of us have forgotten what it feels like to have a quiet mind! Research is showing learning to quiet the incessant voice in our head lowers stress and helps support a healing environment for our body and mind. You are invited to experience what Jane Goodel, naturalist, describes as “The peace that passes all understanding,” at Maplewood State Park. Beginning in June, on the evening of the full moon, we will gather to honor our oneness with each other and nature at Full Moon Meditation. One of the jobs our moon has is to stabilize Earth on its axis, so it is not wobbly. Join us and let the stillness of the outdoors stabilize you so you don’t feel quite so wobbly too!
