Mindful Hiking: Opening to Change
June 30–July 3, 2018
Sometimes we welcome change in our lives; other times it comes unexpectedly. It may feel like our life adventure has brought us to the banks of a swollen river and we’re not sure how to proceed – do we turn back or take a leap of faith?
Through engaging mindfulness/awareness practices, we can delve deeply into our connection with the natural world, turn our attention toward the subtle interplay of our thoughts and feelings, tune into our sense perceptions, and rediscover our innate ability to weather impermanence in our lives with grace and strength. Join us for a weekend that will include sitting and hiking meditation (moderate difficulty at 7,000’- 9,000′ elevation), restorative yoga, group discussions, and lots of time for solo reflection in nature.
