The World’s 1st Mindful Pocket Park

Please Join Us For an Afternoon Of

Less Screen Time
More Green Time

In a world where anxiety, overly connected disorder & distraction (OCDD) are the norm, the mental health and physical wellbeing benefits of nature immersion experiences are grabbing headlines and confirmed by science.

Be our VIP guest!

This exclusive “first peek” VIP Open House Ribbon Cutting unveils our solution to today’s distracting devices.

Located at Patch of Heaven Sanctuary.
The Mindful Pocket Park engages your five senses of Sight, Sound, Scent, Touch & Taste, followed by a nature-based mindfulness meditation. This 30-minute immersive experience engages the latest research about “the Nature Pill™” from the University of Michigan’s School of Environmental Sustainability regarding the lowered cortisol (stress hormone) impacts of a minimum 20-minutes of exposure. 

The goal is to increase calm and reduce anxiety.

Pay Attention With Your Senses


The Mindful Pocket Park received its first funding and kick-off through the Leadership Miami non-profit program with the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, later injected with more than $400k philanthropic support by the founders of Patch of Heaven Sanctuary to become this innovative wellness solution that reconnects humans to Nature. It is our belief that falling in love with the health benefits of Nature will activate more people to make ecologically wise decisions in their day-to-day lives.

An Afternoon Sensory Journey...

Participate in our “Science Fair” museum stations

Offer a Wish for Nature at our Wishing Wall

Reflect upon the Human Nature & Mother Nature relationship
Think nature-based mindfulness is “woo” or not for you?

Think again.

Our Chief Experience Officer, Suzanne Jewell, has been leading mindful transformation experiences and wellness walks for the many Miami organizations who believe in the benefit of mental wellbeing “at the Speed of Nature” like Chapman Partnership for the Homeless, Miami Dade College’s The Idea Center and Televisa Unvision.

Patch of Heaven Sanctuary’s mission to trees, bees, butterflies, birds, bats, buildings (the historic kind) and beings (the human kind) gets activated through conservation, regeneration, preservation and education. We envision reconnecting humans to Nature one mindful walk, one butterfly, one tree and one breath at a time.

At the event you will complete the Mindful Pocket Park Meander, submit your completed Mindful Map to receive a special gift: a Pass of BOBO (Buy One, Bring One) for a future visit.

Don't miss this unique opportunity!

 Be among the first to experience the power of nature-based mindfulness in our overly connected yet entirely distracted culture.
