Join us for a monthly hike to increase calm, presence and learn simple exercises that can be done at any time to bring about expanded awareness and connection to the peace of the present moment. Hikes vary in duration and ease to accommodate many levels of ability.



Sunday, January 24th - 2:00 to 3:30 pm

Scio Woods Preserve
Winter is an excellent time to practice mindfulness. In the beauty of stillness, we are able to listen to the silence between sounds, breathe in the aromas of the forest, feel the distinct texture of each tree's bark, and taste the snowflakes melting on our tongues. This hike will be at a slow to moderate pace through the woods with period stops for quiet reflection and connection with our senses. Co-led by Parks Naturalist Elle Bogle and Julie Woodward of Mindful City Ann Arbor. Please bring a mask, wearing a base layer is recommended, and bring a mug for optional hot tea at the end of the hike. This hike is limited to 10 people and pre-registration is required.
