This group is for those who are (naturally) spiritual, those who find being in nature healing, and this group is evolving into the direction of being for those who want to experience "being".
We are not a hiking group, we do more stopping to smell the roses and to "be" and experience the moment than we do walking. You will also be reminded to be present (this includes awareness of breath, steps, the natural surroundings, own body, etc)
We hope to experience mini-vacations for the soul and mind, times of mindfulness and 'being' along with socializing and activities at times. We strive to strike a balance between being, meditating, mindfulness, being still and socializing walking talking picnicking.
This group also promotes the appreciation of connecting, enhanced mindfulness and healing via the practice of: Barefoot walking, Earthing, Grounding, Sunning, Moon-gazing, Sun-gazing, Breathing, Tree-touching, Foraging, bird watching, plant-eating, wind-watching, star gazing, slow walking, mindful walking, learning about nature plants and animals, etc. Connect with nature, slow down, look, touch, feel.
If you're interested in Eckhart Tolle, understanding and dissolving the ego and all it's artificial constructs.. contact me, i am no teacher, however bouncing and sharing ideas and examining the ego and reminding each other not to identify with the ego can be things people could help each other out with. Mindfulness meditation, and being conscious throughout the day are my current egoic goals that eventually hopefully will dissolve said ego.

This group combines socializing with being., perhaps a paradox, but we try to experience both.
We go into each meetup with no expectations or attachments to outcomes.
