Global Spirits Hike - Hidden Villa
Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM (PDT)
Los Altos Hills, CA
Need some down time? We hope you will come to one of our global spirit hikes planned for May and June. These are experiments in community-building and connection among the ‘global spirits’ of the SF Bay, in support of the transformation we all hope to see. This is part of a larger Globalicious effort to create an ongoing gathering space for the globally-engaged here.
Please use these little ‘journeys’ as an opportunity to relax, open up space for what matters to you, and to visit with a globally-engaged or international friend you have been hoping to see (feel free to invite). If there is enough interest, we will keep doing them.
May 12: Exploring Hidden Villa, 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm (approx), Los Altos Hills. Those interested can stay and join us at a cafe afterwards.
Theme: May 19th is the anniversary of when the UN founding delegates visited Muir Woods in memory of FDR, so we will reflect on that dream of a world without war.
Save the date: next hike is June 16th in the afternoon.

Directions: 10 minutes off 280 at El Monte exit. Meet at the parking lot (not the first one, but all the way into Hidden Villa next to Wolken Education Center) at 1:30. Please arrive on time because we will have our opening circle at 1:30 and head out soon after. Trail is 3-4 miles, moderate. Kids welcome. Look for orange umbrella.
Theme: Anniversary of the UN Walk at Muir Woods. As a reminder of the walk in Muir Woods that delegates to the founding of the United Nations took May 19th, 1945, we will open with a reflection on the remarkable spirit of the UN to end war and conflict.
Hidden Villa is where I first kissed a banana slug as a child, and would love to have you explore it too. In addition to oak-filled trails looking out on the mountains, it has a working farm with goats and more.
