Hiking Meditation in Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve
This heat wave calls for a shaded leisurely hiking meditation next to a small creek. Los Penesquitos Canyon Preserve provides it all. A beautiful hike with well defined trails and a minimal incline. This is a wonderful hike for those looking to ease into physical activity. Look for me at the trailhead at the intersection of Black Mtn. Rd. And Mercy Rd. I will be standing near a black Subaru Outback with the hitch open. I will be serving tea and light refreshments before and after the hike to give us hiking meditators time to get to know each other :) We will begin our meditation with a ever slowing hike in silence for about 45 minutes to help us unwind into a 20 minute seated meditation. While maintaining silence we will slowly return to the trailhead doubling back the way we came. Be sure to bring water, wear sturdy shoes, and protect yourself from the sun. Although there is a good amount of shade there is no escaping all of the suns rays. There is a $3.00 parking fee. If you want to avoid this cost you can park on Babauta Rd near Mercy rd. A $10 donation is requested to help cover the costs of this meet up, but please do not let money keep you away. Space is limited so sign up today! Please remember to change your RSVP status if you cannot make it so others are able to join. Feel free to message me with any questions. Hope to see you at the trail head!

    What we're about

    Twice a month, hiking meditators gather at various trail heads around San Diego in an effort to help people connect with nature and themselves. Meet up times are determined by the sun and park hours. Light refreshments such as tea, fruit and granola bars are provided while we gather at the trailhead. A guided standing meditation will prepare you for the journey ahead. Silence is observed throughout the meditation to practice stillness of speech. Seated and/or standing meditations to practice stillness of the body are integrated into each hiking meditation. A patient and compassionate practice will bring stillness of the mind.

    With practice, hiking meditators may find empowerment, peace, and a better understanding of themselves.

    Since I began my own hiking meditation practice I have experienced more energy, motivation and a sense of tranquility. As a therapist I use meditation to help my patients cope. Their feedback has been my inspiration to offer this donation based meet up to spread the benefits in our community.

    Mindful living can be helpful for various ailments including anxiety, cancer, diabetes, fibromyalgia, HIV, insomnia, obesity, multiple sclerosis, and pain. A regular practice can alter how your body responds to stress and alter blood pressure, inflammation, and immune response.

    Please be mindful and compassionate with your body. Please only join us for hikes that you can safely manage. Hope to see you soon.

    Namaste
