Earth Energy Walks 

Join us on our monthly walks, and feel the power of the Earth.

Walks are on the Third Saturday of most months

Details…

Our walk is usually about 2 hrs round trip with a stop for meditation half way in. We will walk rain or shine, however… if the forecast is very stormy, call ahead to verify. (831) 469-0336

Before beginning our walk together, we will take a moment to center our minds and bodies. Once we are all fully present, we will begin our journey, walking in silence, all the while tuning in, listening, and absorbing the energies of the elements, plants, and animals. Halfway into our walk we will sit for meditation, a guided visualization, and to share food.

  • Drinking water
  • A small snack
  • Hiking Shoes
