Encountering the Mystery ~ A Different Kind of Day Walk
Bohemia Ecological Preserve
April 9th, 9 AM - 3 PM
We'll join Sara Harris and Forest Firestone for the opportunity to experience the vastness of Bohemia Preserve in a different kind of way. We will begin by coming together as a community, followed by time spent on the land in silence and solitude and ending by coming back together to share and witness each other.
plan is to hold this event in light rain, but we may end early. We hope you’ll
join us! Heavy rains might affect our plans. If in doubt about the
conditions, call 707.544-7284 (then press 1) after 7:00am the day of the
hike. If there is no special message, the outing is a go as planned.
This different kind of day walk is a is an opportunity to notice the way the mind loves to identify, to name, to discuss and chatter while we practice a new way of coming into a deeper kind of rest where we can listen to the deep wisdom found in the conversation between the land and our inner wild.
Sara and Forest are Rites of Passage guides with EarthWays LLC. Last year they guided a group of 6 women on a 10 day Women’s Vision Fast at the Bohemia Preserve and deeply fell in love with this magical land.
Note on timing: We will do our best to get back to our vehicles by 3 pm. However, it is possible we will get back later than intended.
