This is a unique opportunity to be fully present at "Lands End" where San Francisco meets the ocean. The practice will begin with brief instruction on walking as a group in silence. This is a very powerful practice and not often taught. After a short walk, we will do a sitting meditation where the strength and power of the earth and sea can be deeply felt. Meditating in this setting is often found to be very restorative. After the meditation there will be an interactive discussion and we will continue on a guided hike with spectacular views and peaceful havens that you would be surprised are right next to the city! The total distance covered will be approximately 4 miles with moderate changes in elevation.
Hi, my name is Mark. I grew up in the SF Bay Area and have led hiking trips for many years and have studied meditation and yoga for over twenty years. For me finding joy and peace in meditation and nature go hand in glove . I have done several multi-year advanced programs focused on meditative techniques and buddhist wisdom. In my professional life, I am an entrepreneur and a tech exec. My perspective is one of how do we bring wisdom into our goal oriented daily lives and the complicated world we live in today. My favorite question to ask is "What was your favorite cartoon growing up?"
We will be hiking along a trail where San Francisco meets the Pacific Ocean. There will be incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands and the California Coastline.
