Nature speaks in a universal language, understandable by people from all over the world. Since we can learn how our surroundings – both natural and man-made – impact us, there are many ways that we can use nature to enhance mindful awareness. Each of us responds differently to sights, smells, tastes and textures. The power of nature often brings us to the present moment. When you are in the present moment, you are more aware of your senses and everything around you. When you are more aware of the life and space around you, you are being more mindful.
