Waking-up to the Wild: Mindful Hiking
August 1–4, 2013
Like trees in the forest or fish in the sea, we have an innate ability to live in greater harmony with our environment. While trying to navigate our busy, high-tech world, we can develop habits of mind that leave us feeling disconnected and unfulfilled. Delving deeply into the practice of mindfulness/awareness in nature, we turn our attention toward the subtle interplay of our thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and sense perceptions and re-discover how we can open to our fundamental inter-connection to all things. Rather than always needing to change where we work, live, or who we love, we can change our relationship to these aspects of our lives in a way that brings us greater happiness and contentment. Join us for an extended weekend that will include sitting and hiking meditation, restorative yoga, and lots of time for solo reflection in nature. Wake-up to the wild both inside and out!
