An Invitation to slow down and open your senses
Scheduling for walks is underway and walk schedule will be posted near the end of January 2021.. Social distancing policies will be followed during walks. Masks will be worn when talking, but are not needed during the parts of the walk when invitations are being explored and everyone is moving independently. All equipment will be cleaned after use. Whether you choose to join a walk or not; I encourage you to take time every day to go outside and wander, even if it's just a walk in your yard or sitting on the doorstep breathing the fresh air, soaking in the sunlight and noticing with all your senses everything around you. To register for walks when they are scheduled, go to the Calendar.
