Mindful Goat Meditation

Regular mindfulness practice has been proven to decrease stress, reduce anxiety and symptoms of depression, as well as increase a positive state of well-being. In Mindful Goat Meditation you will be led through a 60-minute mindfulness sitting practice surrounded by animals associated with curiosity and inner-balance. Clients leave feeling refreshed, peaceful, and grounded.

Each session is $35 and can be paid the day of the session by cash, check, or credit card. Sessions are limited to 10 participants, so sign up by the Tuesday prior to reserve your spot. Wear comfortable clothing and arrive 10 minutes before the start of the meditation to get settled. 

Starting April 10th, Mindful Goat Meditation will be offered every other Wednesday from 6-7 pm at Cultivate Care Farms. We ask that all participants are at least 13 years-old.
