About this event

Ditch your screens, to-do’s, and your four walls and join us in the amazing Sibley Volcanic Reserve!

Imagine…

  • Releasing and unloading, as your body relaxes into the current moment.
  • Feeling calmer, allowing your nervous system to down-regulate and stress to fade away.
  • Receiving nature’s reminder that everything is actually ok, something greater is at work here, and we are part of it.
  • Your mind quieting, so you can hear your inner guidance and the wisdom of the trees.
  • Experiencing the healing power of nature.
  • Connecting with yourself, other humans, and the more-than-human-world.
  • Feeling happier and more hopeful about the future.

Escape to the sanctuary of a magical East Bay Redwood grove, noticing the majesty of towering trees surrounding you, hearing your feet crunch on the earth below, catching the song of birds, and breathing crisp, clean air.

For just a few hours, close to home, give yourself the gift of nourishment and inspiration in nature. With all of the challenges of the past couple years, we need this rejuvenation more than ever.

What We’ll Do

There is nothing for you to do but show up! Dawn will guide you through simple practices to help you quiet your mind, calm your nervous system, and mindfully explore the textures, smells, sights and sounds of the natural world.

It’s a time to disconnect from technology and life’s demands, and to more deeply connect with yourself and with natural world.

This Nourish in Nature experience includes:

  • A guided, mindful walk in nature
  • Guided meditations, explorations and other experiential activities amidst beautiful Redwoods
  • “Forest bathing” – an opportunity to take in the forest atmosphere using all of our senses
  • Group connection and sharing
  • Sharing healthy, nutritious snacks together (some provided, or bring your own as you feel comfortable).

What We Won't Do:

  • We will not be “working out.” We will be both moving and stopping and will cover a total distance of about a mile.
  • We won’t be using our phones or screens
  • We won’t be stressing, striving or strategizing about anything

Join us to experience the healing, restorative and magical power of nature. Be sure to register so we can send you specific details on the meeting point and more!

**PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED BY 7 P.M. ON FRIDAY 10/21/22 **
