Awake in the Wild Experience

Mindfulness, nature and art


The Awake in the Wild Experience (AWE) is a mindfulness in nature art installation and outdoor happening.  AWE invites participants to cultivate a deeper connection to the natural world in their cities and neighborhoods. Conceived of by artist Sara Overton, AWE is inspired by the book Awake in the Wild by mindfulness teacher and wilderness guide Mark Coleman.

Visitors will use the nature meditations adapted from Awake in the Wild to engage all senses with nature, inviting a deeper connection with the natural world.  For Los Angeles, Venice landscape architect Pamela Palmer is developing the garden for AWE.  In New York City, Brooklyn landscape architect Tricia Martin and WE Design will create the AWE garden.
