Mindful Hiking: Waking up to the Wild

Kay Peterson

June 21–23, 2019

Tuition $195 + 2 nights

Like the snow melting to reveal vast meadows ripe with the promise of wildflowers, we too can shed the layers of past seasons and old habits to make way for new possibilities in our lives. By tuning into our senses and mindfully moving through nature, we can cultivate the ability to discern opportunities for growth as they arise moment to moment. Join us for a rejuvenating weekend of sitting and hiking meditation (moderate difficulty at 7,000’- 9,000′ elevation), restorative yoga, group exercises and discussion, and solo time in nature. Return home with a renewed sense of purpose and fresh start. Wake up to the wild both inside and out!
