Why:

You go out for a nature walk one morning. The sun is starting to peek out over the horizon, and a breeze brushes your face. You’re standing on top of a hill, looking down at the landscape below you. You see green hills, tall trees, and wildflowers amongst the grass. In the distance you see the water of a creek. You feel so incredibly grateful to be here experiencing this moment. It suddenly dawns on you we are not all able to do this due to the COVID pandemic.

Besides you, who else would benefit from this event? Seniors who find it difficult to walk on an uneven nature path, the physically disabled, and people with immune issues who may not want to risk going outside for a nature walk. Some people may not have access to a natural area near them. Then there are the health care workers, who are working long hours in a hospital and don’t have the time or energy to go for a nature walk.

This virtual nature walk is for you and for them. To bring the peace and relaxation of nature to everyone who loves nature and would like to experience a guided meditation. So invite your friends, family and colleagues to join you in this experience.

The event will take place over YouTube Live – you will receive the link closer to the event date.

Tickets are free.
