This group is for those interested in taking mindful/meditative walks/hikes on nearby trails, greenways and labyrinths; those interested in combining nature + spirituality + movement; those who might consider nature their religion. The purpose is to come together with like-minded others; and, to learn and share different "ways of walking." Anyone interested in learning or sharing different types of silence-based walking is welcome. Most walks will include setting intention, walking in silence, and stopping for a sitting/standing silence along the way. I have been meditation walking in the Raleigh/Cary area for several years, and feel that the need for this silence, this respite from our day-to-day lives is key for our overall health (spiritual, emotional, mental and physical).  Walks are scheduled once-a-month on Sunday mornings.

FYI - (1) No pets or children on walks; (2) Cell phones need to be on sabbatical (silence mode, off or left behind); (3) Please be sure that you have recent experience easily walking the distance and terrain of a specific walk/hike (and in similar weather and temperatures) before signing up; (4) You are responsible for your own health and safety on these walks; and, (5) please bring water on these hikes and a way to carry it so that your hands are free (e.g., backpack, fannypack, strap).

If you are wait listed for a walk, you will automatically be shifted into an available slot if/when someone changes his/her RSVP to not attending - so please check your status the night before and morning of a walk.  To date, everyone who has been wait listed had his/her status shifted to "attending."

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.
