Week 3 Sessions

Monday, 7/22:
AM – Mindful Movement Activity Stations
PM – Singing Bowls and Sound Healing in Practice

We will begin today with a range of mindful movement activity stations to develop mind-body balance with Sangha Staff. Activities will include Yoga Mountain Story, nature “move & paint” hanging flowers, and wind-tree walking meditation on the trail to our Meadow Farm. We will resume in the afternoon with Susan Gelbman, who will be gifting us with singing bowl sound healing practical experiences. Relaxation becomes easier with the gentle guidance of singing bowls. Soothing frequencies of the Tibetan and crystal bowls, flutes and mystical instruments are healing for mind, body, and soul. Receive the meditation and learn how to play as well! 

Wednesday, 7/24:
AM – Helpful Planner Writing Workshop
PM – Live Animal Experience

Portia Ingram will share her writing and coaching expertise with us as we use her Helpful Planner for writing and goal setting activities in collaboration with peers. This workshop will help young people to grow, plan and execute their ideas including the resources needed to manifest their dreams. We are privileged to have Sweetbriar Nature Center with us again this summer. They will introduce participants to various animals who reside at their science education and native wildlife rehabilitation center, offer hands-on touch, and discuss details about animal attributes, behavior, and habitats.

Friday, 7/26:
AM – Forest Bathing Meditative Nature Exploration
PM – Wood-Working Wonders – Tables & Trays Paint & Stain Day

Forest Bathing with Stephanie Gaglione, Certified Nature Therapy Guide, will include ways in which to explore nature through a range of invitations providing creative and enjoyable sensory experiences around Historic Malcolm House on the Jericho Preserve to minimize anxiety and attain various health benefits including general calm and connection. We will conclude with Stephanie’s tea ceremony. Wood-Working Wonders will resume in the afternoon to paint and seal each participants’ table-type which can then be brought home. Instruction will be provided by our community partner, carpenter, Malcolm Hall.

If needed, raindates are scheduled at the end of the season, Monday, 8/5 and/or Wednesday, 8/7.

See all the Summer At The Sangha events >

During this 4-week summer general public program, teens and young adults with a range of abilities (in middle, high school, college and the workplace) are introduced to a sampling of hands-on, heart-centered nature and wellness community classes across various subject areas such as history, science, and creative art outlets. Games and team-building, too! Guided by our teachers, farmers, peer-mentors and community partners, participants come together for outdoor educational experiences, to enjoy camaraderie and minimize anxiety. Learn what diversity in nature has to teach through the exploration and discovery of plants, animals, land and water in our Long Island “learnscape”, connecting us as kin. Something for everyone! BYO lunch (water & snack available).
