Summer Solstice Meets Self-Care Presentation at the Mequon Nature Preserve

Life coach and mindfulness instructor Ian Baker Johnson will present “Summer Solstice Meets Self-Care”, an event designed to better understand the energy and rhythms of nature during the summer season. The presentation takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 16 at the Mequon Nature Preserve.

Attendees will learn how to flow with rather than against this time of vibrant energy that begins at the solstice; self-care practices to increase a cooling of the body-mind; and which seasonal foods bring the most balance during the warmest time of the year. The presentation includes meditation and a mindfulness walk through the preserve.

The summer solstice marks the beginning of the summer season. “In ancient times, people were deeply connected to the seasonal rhythms of nature and lived close to the land. We too can reap the benefits of these seasonal rhythms by becoming more aware of the energy of each season and living in harmony with it,” says Baker Johnson.
