Medicine Walks are an unique and potent pathway
to clarity and direct action.
When was the last time you gave your utmost attention to what is guiding your heart and soul?
If you don’t know, or if its’ been a while, then there isn’t a better time to engage in the ancient practice of spending solitary time walking in nature.
What is a Medicine Walk?
A Medicine Walk is a simple walk in nature - a wander - that enlivens your belonging to the Earth and yourself. It deeply connects to your inner wisdom, and solidifies your unique gifts ready to be shared with your community. To say it more simply, a Medicine Walk allows you to tap into a mindfulness mind state that allows you to hold a question about an important issue in your work or personal life and then be supported in enacting this question on a walk and being aware of your natural surroundings then ending by reflecting with other people on your experience + vision.
What makes a Medicine Walk different from a regular walk in the woods?
What makes a Medicine Walk different is the intention you set from the start. Such as asking yourself, "what's most alive for me right now"? It could be your relationship with the prevailing issues in the world, or a personal relationship. It could be undigested grief or emotions. It could be time to let go of old patterns or step into new ones. It could be that you want to be more familiar with the more-than-human wild life and place you call home. Whatever it is, this is a ripe chance to simply be with yourself in the moment.
What happens during a Medicine Walk?
The beginning – In the morning, we will gather as a group and create a comfortable place in our group circle. With this space we will state our intentions and mark the beginning of our personal jounrey. We then will prepare for the walk itself as the walk you be in solitude the entire time in Nature. hen we will move out into the woods to focus on the walk itself.
Alone time in nature – During this time you'll strive to separate yourself from food, phones, jobs, to-do's, identities, and habitual patterns. The only aim is to be with nature and your intention(your questions/what you want to work on). It is a sacred time to be with the wisdom revealed when inner nature meets outer nature.
Your return – At the end of the day we will gather together with a shared potluck meal. Then your story from the land will be witnessed by our circle of others through The Way of Council, and mirrored(reflected) by your guide as a way to amplify your story.
