What a delight to invite you to experience a dream come true! I’m Suzanne Jewell, Chief Experience Officer
at Patch Of Heaven Sanctuary, and the founder of the Mindful Pocket Park. Both a Nature lover
and burnout survivor
, I believe this collaboration can help humans sit, stay
at the speed of Nature
In today's fast-paced world
, we are constantly inundated with information
, which can lead to increased stress levels and decreased attention spans. The American Psychological Association (2021)
has highlighted that nearly 80% of adults are experiencing negative health effects
due to stress, while research published in the Harvard Business Review (2017)
indicates that our attention spans have diminished
significantly.The digital era of distraction
is challenging our capacity to pay attention
, taking a toll on our personal wellbeing, relationships, work-life balance, and overall happiness. This bold innovation at the Speed of Nature
here at Patch Of Heaven Sanctuary activates our vision to reconnect Humans to Nature one mindful walk, one tree, one butterfly and one breath at a time.
The Mindful Pocket Park is our response to these modern-day challenges. Through this unique and immersive sensory experience, we aim to help you reconnect with the natural world, recharge your mind, and elevate your awareness. We believe that by taking the time to slow down and taking "The Nature Pill", we can restore our mental balance and improve our overall well-being.
Think Nature-based mindfulness is “woo” or not for you?
The world’s 1st Mindful Pocket Park℠ is based on the University of Michigan research
that 20 mins in Nature reduces cortisol, which is the core hormone that bathes our body when we experience stress. Stanford’s research supports how vital to mental health “The Nature Pill℠” can be, possibly to reduce the risk of depression in an overly urbanized and concrete world.
I invite you to embark on this transformative journey with us and discover the power of P.A.W.S. (Pay Attention With Your Senses) in our one-of-a-kind Mindful Pocket Park.
With warmest regards,
