  • Description:

    Enjoy stillness and movement in nature, slowing down to take in the sights, sounds and smells of what’s around you, as well as being with the internal experience of thoughts, emotions, and sensations. Gentle qigong (standing up or sitting in a chair) allows you to embody the flowing movements of the natural world. Guided meditation invites you to find a space of quietness and stillness amid whatever is occurring internally and externally.

    Participants may sit on the tarp provided or bring a chair, cushion, or mat.

    This event is intended to be accessible for most people. It takes place very near the parking lot, and extensive walking is not required.

    These events are facilitated by Katie Dutcher, MA, practitioner of meditation and mindfulness since 2009, practitioner of qigong since 2011, and qualified instructor of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. Since she was a small child, Katie has been enthralled and inspired by the natural world.
