Mediation Hike offered for Cancer Survivors and Care Givers
By Jack Ganster
Join Survivor’s Outdoor Experience (SOE) for a meditation hike on Tuesday, June 28th at 6 p.m. Gineen Jarnevich will lead a guided walk starting at the Latodami Barn, North Park.
The evening begins with a brief discussion before the hike about the benefits of nature and meditation. Then participants will do some relaxation and breathing before walking slowly and quietly for about 1/2 an hour. Gineen will give occasional reminders to bring people back to the present. There will be time for questions and discussion afterward. Participants should wear walking shoes that they don’t mind getting muddy, and bring whatever keeps them comfortable-water, hiking poles, etc.
Light snacks will be provided afterwards for those who wish to stay for further discussion and fellowship.
Gineen is a nurse who is also an outdoor enthusiast who has been teaching yoga and mediation for 20 years. “I love bringing the joy and benefits of both to others in the beauty of our local parks,” she said.
