Mindful Hiking: Weathering Life’s Storms
Kay Peterson and Jenny Bondurant
July 27–31, 2018
This program has been cancelled.
A passing rainstorm doesn’t have to ruin a hike if we remember to bring a raincoat or don’t mind temporarily getting a little wet! The clouds are certain to pass and we may even be left feeling stronger and more rejuvenated than we expected. Our emotional landscape is much like the weather – we may not be able to control it, but we do have power over our reactions to it. In this program we learn to ride the waves of intensity by tapping into the indestructible calm within. Join us for a weekend of meditation, mindful hiking, restorative yoga, and silence as well as group activities leaving you feeling refreshed and empowered for the weather ahead!
