January 1st First Day Hike at Lake Perry – we will volunteer to help out with this great event sponsored by KDWPT and our own “home” park, Perry State Park. Hike starts at 10am – check our events calendar to register.
January 12th Visioning Your Year 9:30am – 12:30pm Deadline to sign up for this event is December 31st. $45 regular $35 club Start the year with mindful intention, discussion and support! We’d like you to join us to focus on creating an intention or vision for your year. What will you focus on this year? Prior to the event, we will share 11 days of thought provoking emails with prompts and ideas for you to ponder in advance of the creating process. This will provide you with encouragement as you begin to fine tune your focus and vision for the year. When you come to create and connect, you will have a firm idea of where you are going. A vision isn’t a goal or a resolution, it is a focus or intention for your path in the next year. Your vision can express your focus for the year, things that help you stay centered, qualities you want to develop etc. Your vision is unique to you. We will open the event with a short meditation and discussion, and end our day with time to share our personal visions. Sharing our visions helps us articulate, focus and understand our own hopes and desires. We can’t wait to share a day of visioning our year with all of you.
