This morning is designed to reawaken participants to the living land. We will begin by honoring the Kentucky of the past by sharing our personal memories rooting us in this land, as well as learning about past inhabitants- both human and other-than-human. Participants will then learn to connect with the living present moment. Through meditation and a variety of mindfulness practices (developing a sit spot, learning bird language, etc.), participants will awaken to what it is like to be fully alive in Kentucky at the present moment. We will finish with gratitude for the land as well as look forward to practical ways we can care for the future of Kentucky.
