This group is for those who want to combine spirituality + nature + movement; for those who might consider nature their religion; for those who wish to take a respite from the noisiness and speed of their day-to-day lives. We will be meditation walking/hiking on trails, greenways and labyrinths in the Wake County area - primarily Raleigh and Cary with the hope of sharing different ways and places for these practices. Anyone who is interested in learning or sharing is welcome. Walks start and end with the group coming together as a group. The walks themselves are in silence - usually with three stages (releasing, holding the silence, filling) but with other variations depending on a location; then a time for journaling (please bring your own journal). We walk "rain or shine" except for thunder & lightning, or hurricanes.
I have been meditation walking in the Raleigh/Cary area for several years and have found that the respite from day-to-day life and technology, immersion in nature, and bodily movement provide a wonderful spiritual, emotional, mental and physical interlude.
FYI - (1) No pets or children on walks, (2) Cell phones need to be on sabbatical (off, silence mode or left behind), (3) Only sign up for walks that you have recent experience easily walking the distance (I will include lengths/times, terrains as best I can) in similar conditions (heat/cold).
