{Santa Ynez Valley} Walking Movement Weekend-Community [email protected]

June 21 @ 5:00 pm - June 24 @ 11:30 am

Walking Movement Weekend:  Community [email protected]

Walking is known to be our most human way of moving–moving ourselves, moving each other, and moving our communities. Throughout history we have walked to gather, to hunt, to move across continents, looking for safety and new ways of being. When we walk side by side, our stories unfold and we speak to each other “center to center”. This weekend offers an opportunity to understand walking as a container for greater and deeper community engagement.  In partnership with Saint Mark’s in Los Olivos and Walk2Connect, you will experience the benefits of “connection-focused” walking and how to use this simple way of movement as a tool for greater and more human connection across neighborhoods, communities, and cultures.

These programs are nonreligious, nonsectarian community programs.
All walks and training are free; those who wish can make donations of any size.

The walks and leader training session are being held in various places in the Santa Ynez Valley as well as in Lompoc. The larger goals of our Walking Movement Weekend for our local community and region are articulated in the general goals of Walk2Connect: connection, community, movement, equity, and interdependence. Watch for more information and come enjoy the varied and fun walks. Contact Randall Day for more information 805-245-4921 (text or call) or [email protected]
