About this event

Mindfulness in the Park: A Write + Hike Series

See what happens to your day and your week when you begin it mindfully, outdoors in nature, at three of the most beautiful parks of Jacksonville!

Join us for this in-person spring series!

We will meet at a different park each week. Each session will begin with an introduction to the practice of mindfulness, drawing from the work of well-known teachers, including Thich Nhat Hanh, Pema Chodron, Sharon Salzberg, and Jon Kabat-Zinn. We will take a short beginner-level walk for 30 minutes on a nature trail, using all of our senses to engage in the moment fully and mindfully. The remainder of our time will be spent writing about our experience.

Week #1: We will meet in the beautiful Walter Jones Historical Park in Mandarin. Week #2: We will travel a little further down the river and meet in the serene setting of Alpine Groves Park in Fruit Cove. Week #3: We will travel yet a bit further South and meet at the Rivertown Park in St. Johns County. All three riverfront parks have spectacular views of the majestic St. Johns River and beginner level hiking trails.

**May 3rd will be used as a rain date if needed.

WHAT TO BRING: In addition to writing materials, participants should bring a water thermos, insect repellent, and a chair to sit on at the park. A notebook or journal is suggested for writing because we will not be sitting at tables. A brown bag lunch and/or snack is optional! We are a "green" community, so please avoid single-use plastics if you can. :-)

Open to anyone who identifies as female. This series facilitated live and in-person by faculty member Marilyn Jones.
