Join us in our Mountain Mindulness Series! In honor of Mental Illness Awareness Week, Maddie Miller partners with local mental wellness experts to bring the CMC a sequence of mindful mountain hikes! Our fourth (makeup) hike of the series will be Mindful Mountain Sunset Celebration at Matthew Winters Park. Meet at the Matthew Winters Trailhead at 5:30 pm for a fun short loop of Matthew Winters, culminating in a meditation at the lookout point led by the wonderful Michele Walter!
With the distractions of today’s society, being fully present can be challenging. Through this Mountain Mindfulness Series, we will immerse ourselves in nature to practice mindfulness so that we can learn to be more present in our daily lives. Mindfulness is a moment-to-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, sensations, and surroundings, without any judgment. By practicing mindfulness, we learn to direct our attention in a particular and sustained way so that we can live more fully in the present moment.
Please bring HEADLAMPS, warm layers, sunscreen, water, snacks, and something to sit on (towel, yoga mat, etc.). We will be finishing the hike in the dark, so bring any necessary gear to make you comfortable!
