body wilderness is a 90-minute walk for groups of up to 10 people who are able to walk and move easily over uneven terrain. Please come prepared for 90 minutes in sunshine and shadow, rain or shine. Wear sunscreen/hats and appropriate clothing and footwear (sandals discouraged). Bring your own bug spray and water.

How do we regain a sense of belonging with the earth and air? This wilderness experience happens as you walk mindfully, sit with a tree, listen, look and feel the nature around you and commune with the flora and fauna. The journey will be a technology-free experience, done in silence except for instructions. At the end of the journey, discussion will be encouraged. In the discussion period, people will be encouraged to document their responses to the total experience if desired (drawing on cell phones or paper, writing a poem, listing feelings, clustering or doing a rap).
