The Art of Mindful Birdwatching

A free public talk with Robin Rodrigue.  The talk is followed by instructions in meditation and a group meditation.

Birdwatching requires stillness, listening, observing, and curiosity. Birds have evolved as an integral parts of global ecosystems, and their comings and goings through our yards can remind us that plants and insects are all part of a whole that fits together. Mindfulness is awareness, and birdwatching is a meditation on the goodness and beauty of the natural world, of which we are a part. Learn more about this art at Robin’s talk.
