Acadia Mindfulness Adventures
Guided Excursions in Nature
Practice Mindfulness in Nature
Life Is Busy. Vacations can be hectic. Take some time to relax into life as you are guided through a variety of practices to help you slow down, calm your busy mind, and connect deeply with yourself and your experience in a beautiful setting--led by Local Mindfulness Instructor Jen Harry.
Practice Mindfulness in Nature
Both practicing mindfulness & time spent in nature have been shown to have multiple benefits for our mental & physical well-being.
These guided excursions provide you with the opportunity to practice mindfulness in real life. Try out a deeply calming breath meditation, walking meditation on a gently winding path, mindfulness of the senses while sitting by the sea, mindful eating a snack or picnic lunch.
Whether you are just learning or would like to deepen your practice, leave with more than just a souvenir--take home simple techniques for cultivating inner calm and relaxation that you can use in your everyday life!

What to Expect
Itinerary: First we meet at pre-determined location (or I can come to you) for a brief introduction to Acadia Mindfulness Adventures & a review of our itinerary. Then we will head out into nature for your Mindfulness Adventure. All excursions include Guided Mindfulness Instruction for a variety of practices such as Mindfulness of Breath, Walking Meditation, Mindfulness of the Senses & Mindful Eating.
Weather: Because Mindfulness is a practice of being present to "what is", these excursions are all-weather permitting (we will venture out in all weather!), with two exceptions, lightening storms & torrential downpours. In case of unsafe weather, guests will have the option to experience mindfulness at an indoor location or to reschedule.
Location: Outdoor mindfulness adventures are held either in Acadia National Park or at another equally as beautiful non-park location on Mount Desert Island. (Ask about options!) On excursions you can expect to walk/hike 1-2 miles round trip. (Options are available for shorter walks if needed) Experiences are created to focus on mindfulness practices rather than exertion and are tailored to your specific level of ability.
Dress: Weather in Maine can change quickly, and temperatures can vary widely within the same day. Layers are always a good option. Dress appropriately for sun, rain, and wind. If going off property, please wear appropriate footwear for walking/hiking (sturdy shoes with good support).
Time: Outings into Acadia or other locations on Mount Desert Island are scheduled for 2 hours, additional time may be required to allow for travel & parking.
What to Bring: Curiosity & openness to your experience! In addition, you may want to bring an extra layer of clothing, or rain gear, weather dependent. A water bottle if desired. Insect repellent & sunscreen. It is always nice to have a journal for reflection but it is not required.
Cancellation Policy: Scheduled excursions require 24 hour cancellation notice. Less than 24 hours notice requires payment in full of the scheduled excursion.
Park Passes: Please note that if your excursion is planned for Acadia National Park, you must purchase a park pass/pay the entrance fee, and carry this with you while adventuring. Entrance fees may be paid at 1) Sand Beach Entrance Station, 2) Hulls Cove Visitors Center or 3) Bar Harbor Village Green. Vehicle hang tags must be displayed at all times while in the park. Passes also may be purchased on line at www.recreation.gov/pass/
