Our Beauty Walks help to create and hold space for collective deep breaths in natural environments. We meet at a variety of natural locations to walk, reflect, converse, and then return to our important work in the world. The walks are typically 1-2 hours in length and are a space for the justice-minded to gather and walk together.
This practice of the Beauty Walk came to Renewal in the Wilderness from a member of our Board of Directors, Sharon Welch, who has used this practice with her students. Sharon shaped the following with inspiration from Animal, Vegetable, & Mineral: The Sacred Connection, an article by Carol Lee Sanchez.
We do everything from occasional group meditations to reading nature poetry to creating nature art to being mindful about our surroundings. Join us as we gather together for a bit of solidarity and renewal.
