A Mindful Wander Around Clare Hall

Mon 4 Jul 2022


Join Clare Hall in a guided (or self-guided) mindful wander and outdoor meditation, enjoying the College’s beautiful grounds and gardens. Mindfulness is about purposely paying attention in the present moment, noticing our surroundings and what we are doing, rather than being caught in thinking about the past or future. You’re warmly invited to take in the sights, sounds and fragrances of Clare Hall’s green spaces this summertime. The guided session will begin with mindful sculpture sketching and tree gazing, before heading over to West Court for a short guided meditation, after which participants will be free to roam our gardens.

Detail on activities:

Mindful sculpture sketching: we will provide paper and pens for a short mindful sketching exercise, in which participants are invited not to look at the paper and to simply look very closely at a sculpture and sketch what they most notice. You may be surprised by your creation!

Tree gazing: walking along Herschel Road we will pause and look carefully at the large, leafy trees, listening to any sounds and wildlife we may notice.

Guided meditation: once at West Court we will lay down or sit on the grass and a Clare Hall staff member will invite attendees to follow a short guided body scan meditation, focusing on the face, shoulders, hands and feet as applicable.

Free to roam: once we have completed the above activities, you are very welcome to wander our gardens and grounds freely, leaving at a time to best suit your schedule.

Self-guided option: You can also enjoy a self-guided wander if you’d prefer to practice mindfulness solo or with your friends. Please sign up via Eventbrite to receive a digital copy of the Mindful Wander guide, or pick up a paper copy from our Porters’ Lodge.

Please wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water or other refreshment with you.

Clare Hall is a college for advanced study at the University of Cambridge, located close to the University Library and neighbouring Robinson College.
