This group is for those interested in taking meditation 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 meditation walking is welcome. Most walks will include setting intention, walking in silence, and journaling afterwards. 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 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 before signing up.
Walks are limited to 20 people beginning with the March 2013 walk. The hope is that on the day of the walk, that we'll have a group of ~15. The waiting list is set up to automatically move people from "waiting" to "attending" if/when someone changes his/her status from attending to not attending. If you're wait listed be sure to check the website (and your emails) the night before and morning of a walk as there are many last minute shifts. To date, everyone on a given walks waiting list has shifted to attending!
