Our last chance at Being Mindful in Cwmafan this morning and we started looking at ways to keep looking at the world differently after the course is finished. The practice of pausing and looking is something we should all do from time to time to restore a sense of balance into our lives. Parks are great for this since we are instantly put in a calming environment.
We returned then to Parc Siencyn Powell to consider how our designs for life will continue. By putting together photographs in a sequence we considered the stories we could tell and how particular themes could help us be more creative, develop our technical skills further, but also help us discover more about this special place. Our participants told stories about renewal, the change of seasons, alternative perspectives, as well as the passage of time. By choosing to see their world in new and innovative ways our participants are more mindful of their local environment. I’m certain this is a way of living they’ll continue to practice long after we’ve left today.
