Meet your guide…
Ryerson Woods Conservation Area
Ryerson Conservation Area, Riverwoods Road, Riverwoods, IL, USAWe'll meet at the Welcome Center before journeying onto the trail for a slow, soothing walk into the woods that covers less than a mile. During the walk you'll be guided through a sequence of activities called "invitations", since there is no right way of doing them. These invitations are meant to help you to experience a deeper connection to the more-than-human world, to others and to yourself. There will be various times for sharing throughout, along with deep listening, as we journey on the trail. The walk will conclude with a tea ceremony and light snacks. You will be walking and sitting, so be sure to dress appropriately for the weather. Long pants might be helpful as well as shoes that are good for uneven terrain and maybe some bug spray if you'd like. Light sprinkles of rain won't stop us. But just incase - the Rain Date will be: Sunday, Oct. 9th. At the conclusion of a walk, many people report feelings of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, less stress and hopefulness. If the forest calls to you, or even if you had never considered something like this, I truly hope you'll join us.
