What we're about

If you're of a certain age you'll remember MTV's show 'Unplugged' in which artists performed an acoustical set on a small stage. Very intimate, pure talent & total presence. To me, the modern definition of being unplugged is no cell phone/no headphones, no tech/electronic interference between the magic you be and how it can connect you with others & the earth/nature. In a time where we're so connected, I believe many people feel an exaggerated sense of loneliness, isolation, and separation. Let's change it!

I envision community walks, easy hikes, meditation & yoga in the park, labyrinth walks, and more. I'm also interested in jumping on the #trashtag bandwagon in which we select an area and do a big trash pick up (cell phone ok for before and after pics!). There are already several groups that either include or are centered around food and/or drink (which can be distractions from connecting, too!). I'm all for members choosing to go out for food or coffee or whatever after our events.

All ages, genders/orientations, ability levels, etc are welcome! I'm hoping/will encourage members of this group to offer to host an event in their neighborhood/local park.

I'm excited to see what we can create from our base in Loveland and let it grow into FoCo, Greeley, and beyond!

Laughter Labyrinth Walk

Unity Church of Fort Collins, Colorado

The Laughter Labyrinth is a combination of two powerful, yet simple meditations... walking and laughing. The basis of meditation is to connect mind and body through breath and presence. Adding elements of movement, sound, and rhythm with walking and laughter invites ease and joy in the practice. Ease and joy attract continuity, inspires a sense of fulfillment and encourages connection. As we gather, you will be invited into a round of Laughter Wellness that will include deep breathing, integrated movement, laughter sounds and positive affirmation. From there we will walk the labyrinth and invite a deeper connection to self, community, world and planet.

Saturday Stroll & Art Appreciation- Benson Sculpture Garden

Park in the angled parking along Aspen Dr (closer to 29th than Taft) and we will meet at what I assume is the restrooms/gazebo? (see link below) around 7:55am. This walk is a bit longer so that we can explore the extension of the park across 29th St. This is likely to be a slower, quieter and more contemplative walk, self-paced in order to promote more presence & connection to the grounds and the sculptures. We will all start together but, perhaps, finish at different times.

Walk As One- World Labyrinth Day

Please arrive by 12:45 p.m. The first Saturday of May is designated as a day to bring people together from around the planet in celebration of the labyrinth as a symbol for healing and peace. What a wonderful way to come, get unplugged from all the distractions and walk the labyrinth inviting more peace into your life as well as to our planet. We will have with us Phyllis Kennemer, who will share some brief information about the labyrinth and suggestions for making the most of your walk in and out of the labyrinth. A word about World Labyrinth Day: People are invited to walk a labyrinth at 1:00 p.m. in every time zone. Be a part of a rolling wave of peaceful energy as the earth turns. If you cannot join us for the walk, you can find a labyrinth near you at www.labyrinthlocator.com. Join us in spirit as you walk a labyrinth in your time zone at 1:00 p.m. on May 4th. Phyllis K.
