Are you open to exploring mindfulness but haven’t quite developed a solid meditation practice or found that sense of deep peace and calm that is supposed to come with regular meditation?
What if I were to tell you that walking quietly in nature combined with simple mindfulness practices and sound healing with the gentle rhythm and vibration of the frame drum (one of the oldest instruments in human history) has an extraordinary ability to help you quickly relax into a calm meditative state and feel at home in your body.
It is from this grounded space that we connect with our intuition and confidence as resolutions suddenly appear allowing us to break old patterns, habits, behaviors and thoughts in a gentle way.
If you’re ready to find a safe place in nature where you can feel comfortable in both releasing tension and relaxing into a deeper state of meditation, then you’ll definitely want to consider joining our group of like-minded friends for this special event.
This unique experience will include:
• Silent time in nature to clear the mind, get still and clear out thoughts and emotions that keep you in a holding pattern so you can create greater ease in your life.
• A simple nature-based mindfulness activity that will welcome the healing qualities of nature into your life as you become more grounded and feel at home in your body. Science show that fragrant aromas released by trees and plants boost immunity and promote positive feelings.
• Tea service with therapeutic herbal teas designed to work with nature’s plant medicine and support your health and wellbeing.
In addition, you’ll also have a chance to experience the Drum Journey Meditation to support your physical/mental/emotional health in a wide range of ways that include:
• Gently guiding the brain into relaxed states of theta
• Harmonizing biological rhythms such as sleep cycles
• Connect you with your creativity and intuition
• Calming the nervous system and reducing stress related hormones
• Unwinding muscular tension
Participants are continuously reporting great benefit from past events. The direct feedback I’ve been receiving includes surprise at how quickly the drum journeys create deep calm, a sense of peace and finally feeling “at home”.
ABOUT HENRY COE
Part of what I do as a guide is find places in nature with special therapeutic qualities that support inner reflection and healing. The recent rains have greatly enhanced these magical places in nature as Henry Coe is literally teeming with life affirming energies including flowing creeks, emerging wildflowers and abundant deer. The park rises high above the valley floor and away from the city in a protected landscape with vast panoramas and deep valleys. This spring will be a very special time to get out and explore California!
$20 (includes $8 entrance fee for the park)
WHAT TO BRING
Comfortable shoes to walk in
Layers of clothing in case of cooler weather or rain

Tea (I'll also be serving therapeutic tea from an organic herb garden)
