Listen to the birds and the breeze. Enjoy experiencing the interconnectedness of nature and yourself. Delight in being conscious of every step you take, feeling the earth beneath your feet. Join us for an exquisitely guided mindful exploration of hidden gems and special spots on the Stanford campus.

Learn first-hand what the new science of awe‚ and the work of Dacher Keltner’s lab at UC Berkeley is confirming: that opening yourself to beauty and wonder can lead to a greater sense of overall well-being and improved health. Research supports the physical (healthy immune system function, nervous system regulation), mental (calms the ruminating mind, and promotes creativity), emotional (promotes positivity) and social benefits of spending time in nature.
