We are proceeding (very cautiously!) with certain events going forward. In order to make this work, we will be allowing a small number of participants at each event. We will need your cooperation in only signing up for events you can truly commit to attending. If you miss out on registering please get yourself registered on the waitlist. We also ask for everyone's cooperation and patience as we all adjust! Please see our policy and safety practices here.
DEADLINE TO REGISTER: BY MIDNIGHT, TWO DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT (JUNE 16)
Journaling helps us to make sense of the thoughts in our mind and where we find ourselves throughout the seasons of life. The forest provides a peaceful place to slow down and allow thoughts to flow onto paper. Come with an open mind and heart and learn how journaling combined with hiking can be part of your self-care. This experience will be structured with journaling prompts for personal reflection.
