Wellness Hikes for Portland Communities of Care Program
Nature is restorative, contributes to personal well-being, and provides fodder for group cohesion. Nature can help mitigate burnout for workers in purpose-driven occupations that may also be high stress. Renewal in the Wilderness offers no-cost hikes and scholarships for Community Trips specifically for workers in meaningful, yet stressful work.
On these Wellness Hikes, we will put our phones on silent, engage in voluntary acts of simplicity, reconnect with our body, use all five senses, engage in discussions focused on meaningful work, and let our sense of time go (your guide will keep track of time). If participating on a lunchtime Wellness Hike, please bring your water bottle and a snack or bag lunch.
