First Friday Meditation Hikes

Friday, October 6, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
On Campus

Join us the first Friday of each month during free hour as we collectively unplug, recharge, meditate, and reflect in nature through mindful Meditation Hikes on the CERA (Conservation and Environmental Research Area) trail.  We will meet promptly at 12 noon at the footbridge across from the Admin Garage and will first pause at CERA pond to set our intentions. Once on the trail, we will spend our time in silence, allowing for observation of nature and one's mind and body. We will set aside time at the tree clearing along the trail to debrief and share our experience before returning, recharged, to the office, classroom, or lab.

Please note that we will be walking on a fairly flat but unpaved trail for part of the hike. Appropriate footwear and clothing appropriate for the season is recommended. All are welcome, faculty, staff, and students!  No experience necessary.

The trail is 28 minutes and 1.4 miles. Co-sponsored by UMBC Wellness Initiative and Sustainability Matters at UMBC.

Faculty/Staff: This is a qualifying event for WIN Rewards - Emotional, so remember to bring your WIN Rewards Card!
