Connecting to the source: A Recharge Nature Walk Vol.2
Sat, 6 May 2017, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM PDT
Do you ever feel caught in the concrete jungle? Disconnected? Out of balance?
Here at Recharge we believe in providing opportunities for our Tribe members to bring balance back into perspective. Living a life dominated by our culture, our minds and our man made world, is a life cut off from the natural world around us. Many of us live day to day, as though we are separate from existence. In fact, we are an integral part of existence… we are existence!
Living this way is unhealthy and inherently goes against the natural law causing an imbalance and sense of separateness. Connecting back to the source, to nature, on a regular basis is key to cultivating balance in one’s life. We are blessed to be surrounded by some of the most energetic, ancient, life-giving rainforests on the planet.
Our “Connecting To The Source” nature walks, provide you with an opportunity to come face to face with that beauty. To quiet your mind, and just be.
To remember who you really are.
To find the balance you’ve been missing. Our nature walks also give you the chance to interact with other like minded awesome people, just like you. The walks combine an element of community and interaction, meditation, walking with awareness and of course fun!
