2023 Yoga Meditation Hiking Retreat Day with Roy Holman & Liz Gross in Cascade Mountains
Jul 16, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm| $45
July 29th, 2023 – 9am-4pm
We will start with some fresh ginger tea at our home in North Everett (optional), with a short opening meditation. Then we carpool from Everett (or wherever you live if possible). It is an hour drive north of Everett. We will meet around 9am in Everett, and return around 4pm. Bring your own lunch. We will bring delicious healthy desserts.
“A journey is best measured in friends, not in miles.” – Tim Cahill
The theme or focus for this hiking meditation day will be Living a Righteous Life. With humility (not shame) and courage (but not arrogance or ego), we will explore our life in relation to all life and people and Spirit. How can I align with Divine, use my body and life as an instrument of peace and love. How can we align our words, our work, our actions with our soul?
What we will do:
On both dates, we will hike about 5 miles round trip, little elevation gain. We will mix in some walking meditations, and do some riverside standing yoga poses. We will eat lunch on the hike, so please pack a lunch. We will provide healthy dessert. On the July hike, some of us may choose to take a cold river plunge! Great for the immune system! (maybe even on the February winter hike??)
Trail and Road conditions:
The road is paved and an easy drive. In the summer hike, you have the option or returning over the Mountain Loop Highway, beautiful, but part of it is unpaved with some potholes. The trail itself is normally in great condition, pretty flat, a great trail for meditation walks.
Guided hike with guided meditations and some gentle forest yoga and forest bathing (the forest bathing is donated free from the generous forest!). Come escape your winterized, indoor, electronic and wired world and get some fresh air, move your body, and meet some good people.
Price: $45 per person
About the instructors:
Roy Holman: I am a 500 hour Certified Yoga teacher, in the Viniyoga tradition. I teach a safe, gentle, body-friendly, grounded, breath-connected, meditative, flowing traditional hatha yoga – a meditation in motion really. I like to move slow, give time to breathe deeply and savor the poses. I also teach breath-work (pranayama) and meditation, and also try to incorporate the many aspects of emotional healing and balancing I have learned. The meditation is a mindfulness style, with focus on breath awareness, heart opening, body senses, emotional clearing, and connection on all levels (body, breath, emotions, Earth, Spirit).
Liz Gross: I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body.” Liz is a gifted sound and vibration healer, and teaches with Roy on retreats. Liz teaches yoga, meditation, Oneness and often does some of the cooking on our retreats. “When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life. Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.
