Waking Up in the Wild: Forest


The forest beckons you to a half-day retreat to explore your inner landscape, the external natural world, and the connections between.

Mindfulness in meditation, gentle qigong, and walking will give the opportunity to practice openness to and recognition of whatever is arising within and around us— our own breath, a breath of wind, the call of a bird, the whisper of the leaves, and the whispering of our hearts.

Savor the opportunity to practice and connect with others through sharing and discussion, to connect with yourself through reflection and writing, and to connect with the environment through simply being immersed in nature— awake and alive.
