I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found I was really going in.

Sugarloaf Walk (Autumn)

What is it like to enter the landscape and walk the land in a sacred way? What might we discover about ourselves and this living system we call home, if we were to slow down and mindfully explore both our inner and outer landscape?autumnlandscape Our  walk will be interspersed with stops for meditation, qi gong, readings, and contemplations 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. Come celebrate the colors and the bounty of Autumn with meditations, qi gong (with James Foulkes) and mindfulness practices to connect you with  the energy of the season.
