In this contemplative one day in southern Marin, we will open to the joy, beauty and tranquility of the natural world. We will utilize various sensory awareness practices, and mindfulness based meditations to support us being present and awake to our direct experience and to the wonder and mystery of nature. This time will be one of deep nourishment, regeneration and connection.

We will learn from nature’s perennial wisdom that teaches us about change, inter-dependence, letting go and countless other things. We will explore the interconnection between our inner and outer landscape, and how nature touches and evokes beautiful qualities of peace, wonder and love. Through the time there will be mini-talks, guided meditations and group exercises. The time will be held in spacious silence.

No previous meditation experience necessary. All levels of practitioners are welcome.

There will be hiking on this trip. Participants should be able to hike 6-10 miles unaided. Some of the terrain may be uneven or steep.

About the Marin Headlands

The Marin Headlands houses an amazing richness of history and biological diversity due to the variety of habitats and unique geology of the area. Enjoy a hike through our varied trails and take in the astonishing views of the Pacific Coast and San Francisco.

The Marin Headlands is home to a diversity of animal species. Local mammals include coyotes, deer, rabbits, and bobcats. Due to the close proximity of the Pacific Flyway, the headlands also hosts a large variety of owl, song and shore birds. Egrets, grebes, and mallard ducks can be found year-around patrolling the waters of Rodeo Lagoon. Bird Island along the coast of Rodeo Beach is one of the largest roosting sites in northern California for the endangered brown pelican.
