First Friday Meditation Hikes
Monthly Wellness Event for Faculty, Staff, and Students
Join us the first Friday of each month during free hour as we collectively unplug, recharge, meditate, and reflect in nature through mindful Meditation Hikes on the Herbert Run Greenway and CERA (Conservation and Environmental Research Area) trails. We will meet promptly at 12 noon at the Herbert Run Greenway sign on the footbridge across from the Admin Garage.
We will first pause at CERA pond to set our intentions. Once on the trail, we will spend our time in silence, allowing for observation of nature and one's mind and body. We will set aside time at the tree clearing along the trail to debrief and share our experience before returning, recharged, to the office, classroom, or lab.
Please note that we will be walking on a fairly flat but unpaved trail for part of the hike. Appropriate footwear and clothing appropriate for the season is recommended. All are welcome, faculty, staff, and students! No experience necessary.
The trail is 28 minutes and 1.4 miles. The whole hike will take 1 hour. Co-sponsored by UMBC Wellness Initiative and Sustainability Matters at UMBC.
