Give your tired eyes and fractured attention a break with a combined mindful walk and meditative sit-spot in the woods. After some light stretching, we’ll practice a few breathing techniques and then head out for a slow meander on one of the trails in the woods near the Diamond Middle school. Brief sensory activities will cultivate a level of enhanced awareness, and bring a sense of calm to your day. Our walk will include a stop or 2 (or 3) to observe some seasonal marvels, as well as a 10-15 minute silent seated meditation.

Masks should be worn during our time on the trails, but can be removed during breath exercises and our sit-spot, provided we have the space to socially distance ourselves. There is unfortunately no restroom access at this site. Clothing that is appropriate for the weather is a must. Sturdy shoes recommended. Instructor will provide foam blocks for sitting.
Heavy rain or lightning will cancel. Limit 8.
