Enjoy deep relaxation and renewal during this guided meditation and walk designed with this very beautiful season in mind. We will softly enter the woodland path with a quiet mind and open heart; this slow amble leads us to soft moss underfoot, murmuring pines above, and the sweet chick-chic-chic-a—dee calling out our presence. The forest is alive with an infinite variety of sensory attractions, all potential guides and healers for each of us. Renew yourself within this collective exploration where hearts think and minds feel. Your inner nature is designed to collaborate with the natural world of which each of us is part and parcel. It is here that nature elicits wisdom, healing, and surprise. 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Meet in the A. B. Ceder Room. Please pre-register by calling 860-567-0857 or register online.  Members: FREE, Non-Members: $5.00
