This comes per request from a member for an easy and slow one (I love suggestions!). It will be a meditative walk by the creek through the Redwoods at Redwood Regional Park. We'll open with a grounding meditation in a Redwood Grove, I'll lead a loving-kindness meditation before we turn around and I will close by leading a yoga practice in the field. The walk is 3 miles round-trip, no elevation gain, following the stream trail. It's a time to connect with the beauty of nature surrounding us and within ourselves. Meet like-minded folks and enjoy the sunshine! Bring snacks to share after yoga and we'll have a picnic in the field (no need to carry food during the walk, we will be nearby the parking lot at that point and can go to our cars). Bring a yoga mat & plenty of water (there are fill-up stations along the way as well). I offer this day and practice with dana (generosity) so please give what you can to support this practice for all and the meetup group costs!
There is no fee for parking but car pools are greatly encouraged! Please, feel free to message folks about sharing rides. I'll be leaving from nearby Downtown Berkeley BART so message me if you'd like a ride.
We'll meet at the Canyon Meadow Staging Area Parking Lot. My cell is[masked]-4453. Service is spotty but I should find spots so please call or text if anything comes up.
