About the Event
Join Wonder & Grow for a free mindful nature experience to close out 2019. We look forward to an opportunity for peaceful reflection before the New Year begins. We often want to end the year with a bang...parties, booze, resolutions, and excess. Those experiences can be fun, but why not create space for yourself and enjoy some time without the worry of what lies ahead. We hope you’ll join us on New Year’s Eve morning for some winter calm and a mindful nature experience.
Expect to engage in a 90-minute Mindful Nature Experience including: ~ Gentle Movement ~ Breathing & Centering Exercises ~ Walking with Awareness ~ Nature Meditation ~ Sharing Circle.
All are welcome in this expererience. The walk is about a mile long with small inclines. We will be moving slowly and comfortably. If you would like more details, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT TO BRING: ~ An open mind. We ask participants to come without expectations. Each experience will be unique. ~ Dress in layers in weather appropriate clothing. This event will not be canceled unless there are dangerous conditions, such as, high winds or below zero temperatures. Wear what you would be comfortable in for a day outside PLUS an extra layer, just in case. ~ Comfortable shoes for walking in the woods. Do not wear anything with a smooth tread. Be prepared for mud, water, and slightly uneven ground. ~ A small backpack is recommended (but not required) to carry water, a hot beverage, and/or extra layers. ~ A small blanket for warmth. This is not a necessity if you are dressed appropriately, but it may be helpful to have during the times we are not moving. ~ Guides will have a first aid kit, extra layers, and ponchos available. Don’t stress too much about what to pack. Arrive ready to relax and just be.
Donations are suggested but not required. Wonder & Grow is a non profit organization that intends to spread our work througout the region to children, families, and interested adults.
