Sink into the peace of contemplative practice by spending a quiet day in nature. Our retreat will focus on cultivating mindful awareness amidst the beauty and wonder of our natural surroundings through gentle movement, sitting meditation, and a silent hike.
We'll begin the day with movement and meditation then settle into the steady rhythm of a silent hike through the lush old growth forest along the Ossagon Trail in Prairie Creek State Park. At just under 2-miles we’ll arrive at the beach where we'll rest, talk with each other over a picnic lunch, and enjoy a little more movement and meditation. After lunch we’ll silently hike back to the trailhead and end our day with time to talk and a short meditation. The hike will be about 4 miles round-trip on gentle moderate terrain.
