Redefining Self Care: With the Seasons

  • Niche Plant Shop 286 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States (map)
Redefining Self Care Series (1).png

This series, led by Slandie Prinston, invites feminists who are looking for wholesome ways to ground and nurture themselves to return to nature and community. Through practicing plant mediation and establishing parallels between plants and our humanity we will explore how stillness, presence, awareness, faith and community bonding shape self care. Featuring meditation sessions, discussions, and Cauldron community.

Join The Cauldron at Niche for Redefining Self Care: With the Seasons to work on learning, knowing, preparing, and using your seasons alongside a plant meditation. All attendees will also receive a plant and a shop discount!

PART I PLANT MEDITATION

This creative form of mediation involves sitting quietly with a plant and tuning in. This activity is performed by watching a plant placed a foot away, keeping the breath steady and focusing one’s attention on the way nature’s elements affect plants. This approach uses plants to draw parallels between the interconnectedness of plants with the soil, air, water and sun and our interconnectedness with our minds, bodies and spirits and our surroundings. 

PART II DISCUSSION

  • Share thoughts and feelings about the meditation

  • Discuss acceptance, surrender, faith 

Overall the goal is to encourage you to see nature as a teacher, and to reflect on how rewarding life can be when you let go of resistance, have faith in your process and trust the universe. There will be a strong emphasis on accepting the flow of life. 

We will be giving away two tickets to this event free of charge. If you are interested in one of these tickets please email us at thecauldronboston@gmail.com.
