If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable.

Sugarloaf Walk (Autumn Equinox)

sugarloafCome practice with us outside just as our ancestors have done for millennia.  In almost every culture and spiritual tradition, people have walked the land as a way of connecting with the sacred nature of the life within and around them.

Our  walk will be interspersed with stops for meditation, readings, and qi gong (with James Foulkes) to bring a greater awareness to our experience of being with and on the earth. As Gary Snyder said about his and others’ circumnambulation of Mt. Tamalpais in the early ‘60s – “The main thing is to pay your regards, to play, to engage, to stop and pay attention. It’s just a way of stopping and looking — at yourself, too.

We’ll walk amidst the fall colors and tap into this season of harvest.  What is coming into fruition in your life right now? Come and celebrate the season with us on the mountain and allow nature and the land to help you awaken more fully to your life!

  • The walk will be about 5-6 miles, with some uphill portions (Moderate difficulty)
  • We will meet at the East View parking lot at Sugarloaf Mt, Dickerson, MD at 9 am.  The day will finish about 3 pm.
  • Maximum number of participants: 20
