Individual Mindful Walk- Be a Pilgrim for a Day

Be a pilgrim for a day: leave your phone behind and be ready to slow down, to fully engage your senses and to be amazed by the beauty that exists in the natural world. Come home refreshed and reconnected to yourself, others and nature, ready to fully engage your whole self to life.

The Individual Mindful Walk is a guided walk that is just for you, at a time, duration and place of your choice. The session includes a meditation practice in nature, silent walking, poetry reading and some reflective time alone. I can travel to trails near you, within 75 miles from my home (Palo Alto, CA), or I can show you one of my favorite trails. Of course, we will be following the COVID-19 protocols in place at the time of our walk. Interested? Contact me to schedule your walk and get a customized quote.
