Details: About 6 miles round trip, 1,000 feet gain. Amazing views!
Fresh Air: Join us for a summer getaway at this beautiful location in Rainier National Park, just two hours from Seattle.This is an amazing hike, past meadows and lakes and into a beautiful meadow with views of Mt Rainier. We will invite some silence and walking meditations, eat lunch in the forest, and get some nice fresh air, a good break from our indoor winters.
Forest Bathing: We will play with the idea of “Forest Bathing”, This healing art in Japan is called Shinrin-yoku Forest Therapy, the medicine of simply being in the forest. Shinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.
What to Bring: Small backpack, a lunch, layers of clothes, rain gear just in case. Swimsuit if you want to jump into a cold lake!
How to Get there: We will discuss car pooling.

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.”
