Happy Easter and Passover! Andrea Smith hosts a special spring show that focuses on the outdoors and gardening. She reads Cynthia Brian’s Easter Parade article (https://blog.voiceamerica.com/2021/03/30/easter-parade/) that provides information on how to keep wildlife out of your garden. She then interviews Joann Calabrese with her book, Growing Mindful, a handbook on garden and green world mindfulness practices. It contains an abundance of activities rooted in sensing the wonder and magic of nature. Growing Mindful will help you deepen your spirituality and nurture a unique practice. (mindfulnessgardengames.com ) Andrea winds up the hour providing the health benefits of spending time in the natural world. Spending time walking among or simply looking at trees lowers blood pressure and reduces the stress-related hormones cortisol and adrenaline. She shares her own meditative experiences as a surfer, swimmer, ocean lover, and forest bather. Be mindful, Get into Garden, Happy Easter and enjoy the outdoors!
