What interests you the most about taking MIndful/MEditative WALKs out in nature?

I experience the sacred in nature; here is one of my poems describing this: Wild Peace I am grateful, so grateful, for my life, I am a raw human who knows how to be whole I am a curly-haired child walking over piedmont hills, brushing against rounded white oak lobes, by myself, but not alone. Captivated by buttressed trunks and carpeted ravines, traversing the slippery bark balance of fallen logs, imagining the living space among rooted brown earth and light floating leaves falling at my feet I will always be there, exploring creek edges and following fence-lines, crunching and climbing to find the sheltered natural rooms framed by branches and stone where I could b e h o l d the dancing beings of cedar, the towering reach of oak and beech cycles of green to copper leaves that shape the vessel of my soul- I finally know how I am to live- to fill my soul with awe, to live in wild peace

Do you have a favorite outdoor place/trail that inspires you?

Swift Creek Bluffs and other Triangle Land Conservancy properties provide unique and often undisturbed ecosystems that are perfect for meditations in nature. The pilot program for the Center for Human-Earth Restoration, the nonprofit I started that involves silent nature walks and other similar activities for youth and adults was held at Swift Creek Bluffs. If you are curious about this program check out this article about us: http://www.triangleland.org/blog/?p=746

Joining this group requires that you are solely responsible for your own health and safety on walks. Please state below that you "agree."
