Chapter Meeting via Zoom – “Mindfulness and Other Ways to Be in Texas Nature” by Michael Smith, author and CTMN member

August 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This presentation looks at some of the ways we can be in nature, such as studying it, searching for beauty, practicing mindfulness in it, and journalling. We will review some of the research describing the benefits of spending time in nature and describe the practice of mindfulness in nature. We will discuss welcoming others, especially children, into prairies, woods, and creeks. Lots of examples, stories, and photos will help us accomplish this.

Michael Smith is a semi-retired Psychological Associate who followed a childhood interest in snakes into the field, learning more about natural history from museum biologists and others. He writes articles and books, including two on reptiles and amphibians. His interests include ecotherapy and mindfulness, and a new book on mindfulness in nature is expected next year. www.livesinnature.com
