MINDFULNESS WITH MINI GARDENS
A Meditative Nature Lover
Shruti is a Landscape Designer from Yoga Nursery and Sakuteiki Gardens. Her journey with nature began from her childhood when she spent a lot of time outdoors with music, painting, and other introspective activities. Growing up, she realized that nature was connected to life, and was life itself.
Shruti was attracted to a form of Buddhist meditation – an open-eye technique – that taught her to live in the present by doing things mindfully. Shruti aspires to spread this realization, and her love for nature, amongst those willing to take a pause in their fast-paced lives.
beautiful greens for urban homes
mindfulness with mini gardens
What if you could have a garden in a goldfish bowl? Would you still complain about the lack of space in your urban home? Say hello to terrariums – miniature gardens inside small, see-through containers. Terrariums are a fully functional ecosystem, enclosed in their unique little world. They are a beautiful, creative, and interesting way of keeping plants at home – perfect for city-dwellers with no gardens, and little time & space for plants.
Create your very own terrariums in this workshop. But do it mindfully, as Shruti takes you on a meditative journey to connect with nature and your own self. Oh yes, you can meditate with open eyes, as Shruti will demonstrate. With music, incense, and a mood to match. Who says you have to seek the Himalayas in your greying years?
WHO IS THE WORKSHOP FOR?
For urbanites who’d love to have their greens around, in spite of time & space constraints
For young & seniors who would like to connect with nature & their own selves
