I know I'm not alone in having experienced a meditative flow when I'm gardening sometimes. If you're interested in exploring how meditation and gardening can intersect, check out the free workshop happening this Sunday, February 23rd, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco.
In the rooftop urban garden called "Graze the Roof" above the church there will be a dharma talk followed by meditation practice, including sitting meditation, walking meditation, eating meditation, and--you guessed it--gardening meditation. The workshop is being presented in partnership between Graze the Roof and the San Francisco Zen Center.
The workshop is free but space is limited so you must RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can check out the event on Facebook. You can also ask about upcoming workshops they're planning in coming months on cheese making, herbal medicine, and solar ovens.
