Deep Nature Explorers
Nature Walks and Other Special Events
We each experience Nature in our own ways. While we easily know where our physical bodies are when in nature, what happens to our minds and spirits? How are our senses aroused? Do you think our interactions with nature have an impact on our day-to-day living and how we relate to ourselves, with others, and with the planet?
First Sundays Nature Walks
The intention of Deep Nature Explorers is to encourage people to delve into these questions using presencing and deep observation methods while interacting with nature. On guided three-to-six mile walks through beautiful settings in the Blue Ridge Mountains, you will be given cues to help you deepen your experience while walking. In addition, there will be a 30-minute immersion stop somewhere intriguing, where you are welcome to sit with your journals, explore with your cameras, or otherwise enjoy in your own way. On some events, we may be listening to live music being performed outdoors.
The location of these immersive walks will change each month; dependent on the weather, specific activity planned, and physical abilities of people registering, but will be within a 30-60 minute drive of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Although the walks are free, they are limited to 10 participants. Advance registration is required.
The next scheduled event is Sunday, February 5th at 1:00pm. If interested, please complete the form below. A confirmation with more information will be sent to you within a few days if there are still openings. Thanks for your interest!
