This workshop introduces the connections between Thoreau’s writings and philosophy and present-day mindfulness concepts. During the workshop you will: spend time with the Walden Woods Project’s resident Thoreau scholar, Jeffrey S. Cramer; practice mindfulness outside, in the midst of Walden Woods; and learn how to bring mindfulness to your own classroom, workplace, or home.
