give artists, nature lovers, spiritual or mindfulness practitioners, (and people who are new to these activities) the chance to experience the synergy of three practices: · walking/hiking outdoors · creative expression (writing/drawing) · mindfulness
Walk. Notice. Create.
The walks explore each activity as a practice that enriches the others to deepen participants' experience of focused awareness, creativity, and connection with landscape, biome, season, and senses.
