About the event
Join me for Mindful Hike: a 60-75ish minute Mindful Meeting at Rancocas Nature Center, located in Westhampton, NJ. (not to be confused with Rancocas State Park entrance, RNC has a separate entrance can be found on Google Maps when you enter address given)
The intention behind this experience is to remind people to put themselves in the way of beauty, get inspired in nature, breathe deep, look around, appreciate the beauty, and honor their connection with the planet. Doing it with others is even more fun!
We will meet on the deck attached to the nature center building at the front entrance to the building where restrooms are located. Restrooms officially open at 12pm, hopefully an RNC employee will be there early to let us in if we need to use the facilities.
Once the group has gathered Veronica will read something inspirational and lead gratitude checks. Then the group will walk & talk, conversation is invited to be about the reading. Veronica will also guide minful quite walking for part of the journey. After about a 20 minute hike the group will find a spot to sit, Veronica will lead centering and a short mindful meditation. There will then be an option for the members of the group to share about their experience if they feel called.
You may want to bring a small towel or blanket to sit on or sit directly on the Earth if it's dry. Rainy day hikes will be more guided mindful sense exploration.
About me: My name is Veronica Carpenter. I live in Audubon NJ. I'm a Certified Yoga Therapist. I am forever a curious explorer and nature lover with a hippie heart. I am excited to bring accessible stress relieving mindfulness and yoga special events in nature for those in the area. I also offer virtual Yoga Therapy sessions, accessible group yoga classes and facilitate monthly group sacred spaces called Soulhood Circles. I live a Yogic lifestyle, applying principles to align myself and the world around me with love. My style is practical yet playful, with a trauma-informed lens.
Rancocas Nature Center is a non-profit organization situated on 210 acres of the Rancocas State Park with 3 miles of hiking trails through meadows, forest, and wetlands in Westampton NJ. The Nature Center has been operating since 1977 and has been providing environmental education for the surrounding community during that time, presenting programs both on and off-site for groups including schools, scouts, libraries, senior citizens, as well as the general public.
We hope the community will benefit from this offering. Reserve your spot and tell your friends. No Yoga experience needed. Everything is accessible for the average human.
