Sunrise 2 Sunset Solo Walking Journey
May 16, 2018
An event every week that begins at 12:00am on Wednesday, repeating until May 30, 2018
TYPE: Solo Walking w/ Daily Email Reminders | PACE: Your Own| TERRAIN: You Choose | DISTANCE: You Choose
Walk Description: This online/offline walking journey is designed challenge your understanding of time and place from the current 9-5 working culture in place today. In fact, we’ll be taking steps back in time with stories of ancient Hawai’ins navigation practices then into the future with information on quantum physics. Overall, we have designed this walking journey to support you in understanding your place in time and how we are all interconnected throughout all it.
During the Sunrise 2 Sunset Walking Journey, you will be walking the same path everyday for one lunar cycle but at different times of the day. You’ll choose the path and the amount of time you want to walk, from 5 minutes to an hour, whatever time/distance works for you. We’ll help you organize what time of day you’ll walk that path throughout the 28 days. One of our goals is to have you experience the same path at different times of the day. We’ll send you a daily email with various perspectives of time and space; from science, religion, mysticism, nature and various cultures. Another goal is to have you develop a deeper intimacy, or connection, to the place you have chosen to walk as well as a deeper relation to your innate understanding of time/pace.
Your Host: Walk2Connect Founding Co-op Owner, Nicole Huguenin: This experience was curated by Walk2Connect Member-Owner Nicole Huguenin, a former high school teacher turned generosity entrepreneur. After a chance encounter and walk with a 72 year old women, she founded Dream Together, a community of every day people supporting and investing in each other’s wildest of dreams. There, she gifts and invests most of her time and energy to individuals and organizations that bring more good into this world, including Walk2Connect, Chilis on Wheels, The Pollination Project, Mindful New Mexico, the Society of Servant Pilgrims and SparqU. In 2015, she committed to walking each day with a new person or group of people which resulted in 403 walks and a much deeper understanding of how connected we all are. Currently, she lives and walks on the island of Maui and was inspired to create this particular walking experience after reading this post from the Ho Mai Ka Pono organization.

-If you miss a day or the weather makes your path unwalkable, that’s okay. We’re not going to yell and scream at you, in fact we’re not even going to track this for you. You’ll simply get the next day’s email in your inbox inviting you out again.
-Once you register you’ll receive an email on May 22nd with details on how to prepare for this walking journey. This will include links to our private FB group to share stories, more information on walking safely alone, and a calendar to plan out your walks. We will begin walking on May 29th, the Full Moon.
