Off-Grid Retreats is deeply grateful to collaborate with Charity Kahn to offer this nature-centered mindfulness based daylong in John McLaren Park. There is more information about Charity’s teaching certifications and experiences at the bottom of this page.
Charity will guide you in sitting meditation, walking meditation, Qigong practice, and wandering in nature. We’ll connect with body as Earth, and our inter-being with all.
Part of the day will be in silence, to support a container of restoration and peace.
Practitioners from any and all backgrounds are welcome. No meditation experience is required.
During the registration process, you may sign up to be put on our email dedicated to participants that are interested in carpooling.
After you register, Off-Grid Retreats will email you to describe where Charity will meet participants on Saturday, September 30th at 9:00 am PST in John McLaren Park.
Charity will lead participants in wandering throughout the park to 2 additional practice sites. There is a path that connects all 3 locations. In some lengths of the path is on dirt instead of being paved. The total amount of time spent walking between practice sites will be less than 15 minutes. There is a bathroom near each location, or on the way in between.
The group will wander to a second site in the late morning, which is also where we will eat lunch. The group will wander again to a third site for the completion of the afternoon practice.
After you register, in addition to sharing where the meeting place is located, Off-Grid Retreats will email you a recommended packing list. Please be sure to pack what you feel is necessary to enjoy the outdoors in a variety of conditions.
