AUBURN — Martin Gagnon, a certified meditation and mindfulness instructor and founder of Mellow Mainer Meditation LLC, plans to lead nature-based meditations and chronicle some of the science behind forest bathing from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 14, online via Zoom, hosted by Auburn Public Library.

No meditation experience is necessary.

The natural world has so much to teach us about daily living if we practice mindfulness and stillness. From plant life to the natural landscape, there are many lessons that enhance our emotional and physical wellbeing, according to a news release.

This program is part of the library’s adult summer reading program, “Tales with Tails,” where adults can read, learn and talk about nature and animals.

Other programs will include living and working with border collies (the dogs will be at the library, and this is a family-friendly program), a Zoom talk with Christopher McDougall, author of “Running with Sherman,” and a virtual visit with Misfits Rehab, a local wildlife rehabilitator.

The program runs through Aug. 31.
