As part of our Earthbonding Project, we are offering a series of three Mindful Walks in the months of May and June at DC area parks. Our emphasis will be on slowing down, breathing and letting Nature guide us, focusing on ways to deepen our relationship with the natural world. We’ll begin with a brief dialogue, setting the focus for the evening and then off we go in silence, to appreciate what Nature has in store for us, as we bring to the trail aspects of our own lives. We’ll conclude with a brief conversation sharing our experience. Our guide will be Dr. Beverly Winterscheid, Founder of the Institute for Nature and Leadership, our partner for these events. All walks begin promptly at 7 p.m. and conclude by 8:30 p.m. Cost is $6 per walk. Registration is required no later than the preceding Monday of each walk, with a maximum of 10 walkers. Registration and payment can be made at www.NatureLeadership.org or by phone at 703-795-7302. Exact meeting locations will be provided at registration.
