Mariposa Meditations, one of several Mariposa offerings, is a biweekly gathering of new and seasoned meditators.  We welcome those who seek to connect their practice directly to Nature consciousness and enhance the ability of humans to support the lives, dignity, and self-determination of Animals and all Earth beings.

Participants train in Nature Mindfulness through guided meditation led by Diana Hulet. Biweekly online sessions meet every other Saturday at 9:00 am Pacific Time for 60 minutes. After guided meditation(s), there is an open discussion that include topics related to weekly issues of Mariposa Reflections.
