The Arrival of Autumn is upon us. The first morning air is crisp and golden. How do you define what is calling you this season? I like to think of these these callings, as stakes for a “fall tent”. What will be your reference points, your stakes that your seasonal tent is built upon?

There are two times a year where you have the opportunity to walk when the length of the days and nights are the same. Once such time is the Autumnal Equinox. What does walking at this time of year offer you? Many birds are migrating and the flowers turn into seeds are just some of the signs of the changing of the seasons. Read more here.
Have you ever stopped to contemplate sunlight on the Summer Solstice? What makes this light different? At this time of the year, the sun rises the earliest of the entire year. Maybe the light seems different because Summer Solstice is known as a time when the sun appears to “stand still”. So as we experience the longest days, the lingering light plays upon the earth differently than any other time of the year. In the Summer Solstice Sunrise walks, you will have a chance to meet this light of summer, the stillness of the full sun, and walk in community. Read more here.
The summer solstice is a time of the apparent sun standing still. There are about three weeks when the sunrise only changes over several minutes. During this apparent “standing still” time, what do you want to contemplate, honor and walk with? Join us during this next Summer Solstice Celebration walk in June 2015.
There is a special magic about the Epiphany Sunrise Walks, as a thousand shades of silver lay across the crystal frosted landscape. On this walk, our footsteps were met with a crunching sound as we stepped upon the stomped grasses. Those grasses had been touched by the below freezing temperatures. Find out more here.
Join us for the upcoming Vernal Equinox Sunrise Walk at the Laguna de Santa Rosa March 16 – 20, 2015. We will begin our early morning walk just before dawn. Find out more here.
Likes all sunrise walks, this is a mini-pilgrimage. During the Epiphany walk, we have come full circle through the year and have the opportunity to reflect and meet ourselves anew. Now is the time to map/vision the year ahead. Read more here.
As we prepare to walk in these winter sunrise walks, there seems to be an apparent stillness and quiet to the movement of the sun and to the land we walk upon. For some, this is an opportunity to reflect on the year behind us and to map/vision the year ahead. Read more…
As we begin the walk to the longest nights, which culminate on the Winter Solstice, we are offered an opportunity to go inward and reflect on the journey to the deepest parts of ourselves. These dark nights and short days can be a time of reflection and review, allowing questions to arise that are nestled so deeply within our heart and the quiet places of our being. Read more…
On the first day of our Autumnal Equinox Sunrise Walks, we met at the pond and the pleasure of learning from amateur astronomer Dickson Yeager. He gave an explanation of what is happening in the solar system and the significance of how this relates to our early morning Sunrise Walks. Read more…
