Walking has profound effects on our well-being--mental, physical, and spiritual. When we walk, we ground our-selves in the original body experience of our one interconnected being—mind, body, soul. We re-connect, re-form, re-imagine, re-create. We wake up to the Sacred Ground beneath our feet and all around us. Walking quiets our mind, releases anxiety, and allows for the unprocessed emotional realities of our past embedded in our body to move and be released. Walking roots us in the reality of the present moment as we let go of attachments and expectations.
Walking in Nature opens us up to see metaphor and symbol in its infinite cycles—birth, death, rebirth—its seasons—planting, growth, harvest, reseeding, silence—its weather—storms, floods, gentle winds, bountiful water, harsh sun and welcome shade. We experience its diversity of life, its abundance and care, its scarcity and destruction, and it becomes the crucible which makes us aware of the Sacredness that holds the Earth, the people around us, and beings with whom we share life. As we walk together, we become community--one interdependent fabric that includes all beings.
Through Sacred Walking, Wanders we hold our questions and allow the Land and the Spirit to reveal the answers that lie deep within ourselves.
