Ron Waline / Josh Lane

Interview with Josh Lane, deep nature connection mentor and author of the book “Conscious Nature: The Art and Neuroscience of Meditating in Nature”. In this discussion Josh enlightens us on the meaning of “deep nature connection”, the qualities that people can develop when they practice deep nature connection, and the profound way that nature immediately benefits our mental well-being, even if we don’t feel like we are enjoying our time out. Josh explains the complementary pathway of meditation and awareness skills such as tracking and bird language. He also goes more in depth on the actual practice of meditation, the difference between turning inward and turning outward, the various brainwave patterns that we experience and what they represent, and how to quiet our monkey mind through an active style of meditation. Finally, Josh offers tips for beginning and maintaining a sit spot and meditation practice. At the end, we are treated to a 10 minute guided sensory meditation that one can return to as often as they’d like.
