Yoga Meditation Hiking Retreat Day
June 11, 2022 – 9am-4pm
Mountain Loop Highway: Walt Bailey Meadows
(1.5 hours north of Seattle)
$45 per person
Guided hike with guided meditations and some gentle meadow yoga and forest bathing (the forest bathing is donated free from the generous forest!). Come escape your indoor, electronic and wired world and get some fresh air, move your body, and meet some good people. Note: This is the bug-free time of year!
We will start with some fresh ginger tea at our home in North Everett (optional), with a short opening meditation. Then we carpool from Everett (or wherever you live if possible). It is an hour drive north of Everett. We will meet around 9am in Everett, and return around 4pm. Bring your own lunch. We will bring delicious healthy desserts.
A journey is best measured in friends, not in miles.
The theme or focus for this hiking meditation day will be “Seeing the beauty and perfection in everything.” Another way of putting it is, “nothing is wrong” (except the mind will argue this!).
Trail and Road conditions: This hike is not particularly long (4 miles round trip, 500 foot elevation gain), but there are two challenges. One, the trail is rough at times, with roots and rocks, so this will be part of our yoga balance practice! Secondly, we will drive about 10 miles on gravel road, but the road is generally in good condition, not many potholes. And the good news is that this hike gets very few people on it, unlike the hordes at Lake 22 and other easier access hikes. Note: If snow is lingering, we will switch to another trail.

You! We usually have about 6-10 people, a chance to make new friends and connect, but also quiet time to walk and meditate.
