Welcome to Health and Well-being Markets - Every Month
Health and Well-being Markets are held on the first Saturday of each month within the grounds at Nan Tien Institute. Join us for this day where you are free to explore. Take part in a free Tai Chi class and ask about our Spiritual and Environmental Preservation Practice. We will also show how we are working to create a viable way of living and creating a sustainable environment for all to enjoy.
Nature Heals : an inspiring day exploring nature in healing and creativity
Begin the day of workshops with a traditional Tea Ceremony overlooking the beautiful surrounds of Lake Macquarie. Meet the authors of Nature Heals Book who will share the story of their inspiring new book and share the value of this work. A journey for your senses through herbs, flowers and other treasures from nature. Then gather in the garden to experience the creative and healing process of EarthArt. For lunch Health and Happy Heart will provide a workshop to embrace mindfulness and nutrition as we prepare a vegetarian meal together.... discover how to be spontaneous with a basket of seasonal produce. Then explore design and nature connections in Permaculture. The final workshop will guide us through the art & beauty of flowers with Chinese watercolour on rice paper .... and end the day with peaceful reflections.
The workshops are suitable for people ‘working in’ or ‘interested in’ the field of Nature-based Therapies (such as Horticultural Therapy & EcoTherapy) or for anyone who will enjoy a nature connection after a stressful & emotional summer! Your workshop fee includes a copy of Nature Heals Book, lunch & materials.
