Announcing a new Meetup for NJ/PA/NY 20-30's OUT & ABOUT!What
: Meditation HikeWhen
: Sunday, September 12,[masked]:00 PMWhere
: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Come out and join us for this group's first meditation hike at Pyramid Mountain in Boonton/Kinnelon, NJ! This hike is about 2-2.5 hours in length so you must be able to hike for that amount of time in order to attend. This hike is somewhere between a beginner and intermediate hike, depending on your previous hiking experience.
We will spend a few minutes getting centered and setting individual intentions for the hike. Once we begin, the first half of the hike will be in silence. There will be places to stop and sit and quiet the body as well as our voices along the way. Once we reach the half-way point the silence will end; the last half of the hike will be a social hike with plenty of time to talk, socialize and get to know each other. We will stop at the locally infamous Tri-Pod Rock before heading out of the woods. For all who care to join afterwords, we'll be heading into Denville to Mara's Cafe for some yummy nourishment. They have lots of choices for both meals/desserts. For more info, you can check out their website: http://www.marasdesserts.com We will be meeting promptly at 1pm so please be early or on time.
Please make sure you wear hiking boots and bring water. Bring a snack if you think you may want one.
Please bring sunscreen/bug spray if you may need some.
You will find us in the parking lot
(not inside the visitor's center).
There are bathroom facilities available for those who need them.
This event will be canceled in the event of rain.
