If a [pilgrim] set out from home on a journey, and kept right on going, he/she would come back to his/her own front door.
~Sir John Mandeville, fourteenth century
2023 Epiphany Sunrise Walk: Friday, January 6
Epiphany is the awareness of noticing something is different in you or your perception of yourself and how you see the world. Epiphany completes the cycle of the last year as you reflect on what has happened and what is new and being revealed to you. The new light entering the earth is a wonderful time to allow new beginnings. This early morning walk is about setting some time aside to contemplate this new awareness, perception and approach to life and to the the new year. This can be a contemplative walk, a walk to get back in shape or a walk to bring in new ideas for the year.
At this time, the earth has begun its cycle of return from the most southern distance from the sun’s most southerly journey. The Epiphany Walk can be used to begin your new year’s resolutions, to let go of the past year or to allow an intention to come to you. This is a time of new beginnings. We call this Perihelion Day, when the earth is closest to the sun, it’s the perfect time to create new intentions. We hope you find inspiration in both your breath and your new beginnings.
The weather can be variable at sunrise. Please wear clothing that will keep you warm, dry and comfortable. We suggest wearing a good pair of walking shoes and bringing water if you like to hydrate on walks. This walk is for you! Whatever this walk unfolds for you, we encourage it. Your path is respected.
