- CARDIO / GRATITUDE SOCIAL BEACH WALK/HIKE – CDM BEACHES – SHERMAN GARDENS VISITInspiration Point, Corona Del Mar, CA
Sunday 8:30 – A fun crowd favorite. Change up the Sunday routine. Start the week with a combination of Cardio and Gratitude in a meditative beach hike with likeminded people on CDM beaches to Sherman Gardens, an amazing botanical garden. Open for all levels - great for first timers, shy people, expert hikers, introverts, extroverts, and YOU! Elevate your heart rate, socialize on the move, raise your better feeling vibration, and meet new people.
We go to Little Corona Beach first and a restroom break. Then we come back by Inspiration Point on the way down to Big Corona Beach.
GRATITUDE & CARDIO
The better you feel the more you allow. This is a safe space with supportive and easy-going group of casual, happy people. This cardio walk encompasses all the short hills, stairs, sand, and beauty of the Corona del Mar beaches. The group pace will be a purposeful trudge and you can go at your own speed – slower or faster. The route is designed for all levels and Included in this walk is a visit to the stupendously beautiful Sherman Gardens. https://thesherman.org/ (Tickets $5.00 – please have a $5 bill rather than a CC – Makes for speedier entry)
THE SCIENCE OF GRATITUDE
Research shows you can’t be stressed and thankful at the same time so when you combine gratitude with physical exercise, you give yourself a double boost of positive energy. You flood the brain and body with positive emotions and natural anti-depressants that uplift you rather than the stress hormones that drain you.
GRATITUDE*: Acknowledging the good already in your life allows us to truly know love, and continually fill our lives with awe, beauty, and satisfaction.* – Rev. Keith Horwitz - The Soul Center - Every Sunday leads Group Guided Meditation at 10:00 meeting at Corona del Mar Youth Community Center 3000 Fifth Ave. Corona del Mar, CA 92625 https://www.soulcenteroc.com/

We have heard and read of the positive benefits from Meditation. Meditation can help slow the mind and open the heart. The only thing we control is our attitude. Personal changes and transformation are an ‘Inside Job’. Go within as we attract not what we want but what we are.
Physical Benefits of Meditation
With meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with more energy. This results in joy, peace, enthusiasm as the level of energy in the body increases.
On a physical level, meditation:
· Lowers high blood pressure
· Lowers the levels of blood lactate, reducing anxiety attacks
· Decreases tension-related pain, such as, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems
· Increases serotonin production that improves mood and behavior
· Improves the immune system
· Increases the energy level, as you gain an inner source of energy
Mental Benefits of Meditation
Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into a relaxed state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. With regular practice of meditation:
· Anxiety decreases
· Emotional stability improves
· Creativity increases
· Happiness increases
· Intuition develops
· Gain clarity
· Problems become smaller
Meditation sharpens the mind by increasing focus and expands through relaxation
A sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger and frustration
An expanded consciousness without sharpness can lead to lack of action/progress
The balance of a sharp mind and an expanded consciousness brings perfection
Meditation makes you aware - that your inner attitude determines your happiness.
- Rosarito trip!!Rosarito Beach, Baja California, Rosarito Beach, BA$170.00
I'm planning a trip down to Rosarito over MLK weekend, since most of us have the day off Monday. We did this trip a couple of years ago and had an awesome time! We'll carpool from Costa Mesa and drive down Saturday, late morning. Stay in a large ocean-front suite (2 ppl per room) Sat & Sun nights, and then drive back Monday afternoon. You must send payment to firstname.lastname@example.org via Paypal when you RSVP, which covers the cost of the hotel (for both nights) and gas/driving to/from Rosarito. The cost is $170 per person (for a suite), or $135 per person for a regular room. I highly recommend the suite- it's worth the extra money for the extra space and better location.
The hotel has 2 swimming pools (one is an infinity pool overlooking the ocean), 3 jacuzzis, a spa, a restaurant, a sports bar, free WiFi, and some fabulous views of the coastline. Every room has a fireplace (suites only) and a patio or balcony with an ocean-front view.
We'll head down to Puerto Nuevo one night for some shopping and a lobster dinner, and we'll head into downtown Rosarito and/or Tiujana one night (depending on what everyone wants to do) for some nightlife.
Don't forget to pay when you RSVP, and don't forget to bring your passport! Looking forward to a great time :)
Is Rosarito safe? yes. I have been many times over the years and never had a problem. Those who are afraid of the drug cartel violence simply don't know what they are talking about- the violence is only in certain areas. They do not target American tourists, and the violence does not affect the tourist areas. However, if you try to buy drugs from a guy in a dark, sketchy part of Tiujana one night and then refuse to pay him, then you may encounter some violence.
What does the cost include? The cost is per person, based on double occupancy (2 people per room). It includes cost of the hotel and transportation. It does not include food, drinks, etc.
Who will I room with? If you are coming alone, then we will set you up with a same-sex roommate who is also going on the trip.
When do I have to pay? Your reservation is not confirmed until you pay. Merely RSVPing on this page does not confirm your reservation. The prices may go up, if the hotel increases its rates. You are encouraged to submit your payment as soon as possible.
How do I use Paypal? You must go to www.paypal.com (http://www.paypal.com/) to submit your payment. Once you login, just click on "Send Money". Send your payment to email@example.com and select "I'm sending money to family or friends." There are no additional fees if you have linked your Paypal account to your bank account. However, Paypal will charge you a $5.25 fee if you use a credit card instead.
What if I have additional questions? Feel free to send me a message at this link: https://www.meetup.com/message/?recipientId=6310059 .
