Celebrate Earth Day by honoring the Ocean

Earth Day is Monday April 22 ... so it seems fitting to honor the ocean the day prior. I've been wanting to do some serious work with the ocean for a while now, especially after Sandy.

http://www.islandbeachnj.org/ParkFacts/driving.html

Mid-way along the island, there is a cluster of buildings. We'll meet there and then do an "active meditative" walk along the water, if possible, before we sit to engage with the wisdom of the ocean. The ocean has long been a source of healing, and it would be nice to send some healing energy back to *her*.

Be prepared to sit on sand ... in whatever way suits you... while being mindful that we will need to carry whatever we bring.

The park charges $5 per car to enter ... let me know if you need to carpool. I'll still collect $10, 60% of which will go to the park as a donation.

    Hey everyone, here's the state website with the new park advisories. Bathing beach area 1 is open only and the park looks like it is free to get in until further notice. http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/island.html

      Cool beans! Thanks for letting us know!

      Yes the park is free due to limited access. I take it we're meeting at the first bathing beach building because there many different buildings in the park.

      I believe Linda had mentioned buildings towards the middle of the island. I'm not sure how far we are allowed to go, since it's being reopened piece by piece, but my suggestion is to meet at the first Ocean Bathing Beach. Would that work, Linda?

      Yes there's a building almost immediately after the main entrance...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
