Parks are good for your health – your physical and mental health. Every month a group of people gather in Centennial Park to practice good health…no, great health. They are our Greenfriends and you’re invited to join them.
Eco meditation is an ideal way to become aware of the natural world around us. At these highly relaxing sessions you will learn and practice Eco Meditation and experience the benefits. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s involved…
You’re invited to join Greenfriends in Centennial Park
These free sessions are held from 8am – 9am on the fourth Saturday of every month. Each session begins with some light stretching and concludes with Chai and chat!
You are also invited to participate in a one-hour clean-up after each meditation, including light jobs such as cleaning, watering, litter collection, planting.
“Our program inspires love for nature and reinforces the truth that humanity is not different from nature. The life force that pulsates in the trees, plants and animals is the same life force that pulsates within us.

Eco meditation helps to re-establish this connection, and that connection is healing.” – Greenfriends
While free, we encourage you to confirm your attendance. Find out more about eco meditation, location and attendance confirmation details.

One of the best ways to get some exercise is undoubtedly with a walk or a run in Centennial Parklands. Perhaps one of the Sydney’s most iconic and best-loved walking and running tracks is the 3.5 kilometre loop that follows Centennial Park’s Grand Drive, but there are a few more – shorter and longer – that […]
Physical inactivity is something we often read about, but most of us don’t do much more than mentally commit ourselves to “doing something about it someday” and then we move on.
