Community Connections Walks: Elderhood

August 11 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Navigating life’s challenges. With Nature. As a community.  

Join guest guide, Stefanie Haug LICSW, (she/her) for a series of theme-based Community Connection Walks. Each walk includes nature-based mindfulness practices, periods of group silence, and periods of circle sharing to reflect, listen and share what may arise around the theme of our walk. The philosopher Ram Dass said, “We are all just walking each other home.” Join us as we reconnect to our experience of ‘home‘ both within ourselves as individuals and with each other as a community. 

You are welcome to participate in one walk or in the entire series of walks should you be interested in continuing the experience with other participants. 

Theme: Elderhood 

This series is to honor and reflect on your remarkable achievement of becoming an elder, however and wherever your journey has unfolded up to now. While these walks will include gentle movement, they may not extend far into the cemetery. Rather, we will tap into the nature of the Cemetery as a doorway to sharing and reflecting on what ‘elderhood’ means to you and to the group of participants. Special consideration will be given for participants who may have mobility or other issues. 

Recommended to bring: comfortable shoes, water, something you can easily carry to sit on such as a small mat 

Check-in will be outside Story Chapel.

Event Capacity: 15 people
