Equinox Nature Wander-Riding the Cosmic Wheel

Saturday, March 20 @ 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Cost: $55 for non-members; $45 for Walk2Connect Members

Miles:  3 miles  |  Terrain:  dirt road, trails, ~300 ft of elevation gain

On the day of the Spring Equinox–a day of equal darkness and light–let nature’s wisdom guide you to balance. By exploring what the mystics say about the "Cosmic Wheel of Nature" and creating our own, we will explore how to ride this wheel with equilibrium. Venture into a pristine, secluded natural environment where you will integrate a celebration of the season of rebirth and welcome new life within you. As we move in the fresh air, experience soul-healing connection with nature, and share with others in a supportive environment, we will root into the wisdom that Nature's Cycles offer us now.
We will also be practicing Qoya during this wander, a body-based movement practice. Qoya is based on the simple idea that through movement, we remember our essence as women is wise, wild and free. The movements in Qoya reflect these themes: Wise—movement connected with breath, Wild—the experience of moving the way your body wants to move, and Free—the freedom to find pleasure in our bodies without focusing on how they look. We reclaim our capacity to access our inner wisdom, express ourselves authentically, and practice being true to ourselves in the midst of life’s blessings and challenges. The very best thing about Qoya is that there is no way to do it wrong, and the way you know you are doing it right is that it feels right to you!
Maria from Walking Inspiritus and Jennifer, from Remember Your Wings, will lead your experience as you: 
  • Take time to immerse yourself with the healing sights, sounds and smells of nature.
  • Walk and be with the land through guided meditations to activate your intuition and help you gain insight
  • Reconnect with nature and let its wisdom shed light on your inner knowing through reflections and journaling
  • Experience yourself as Wise, Wild & Free as you practice Qoya outdoors 
  • Connect and share with others on the welcoming lap of Mother Earth
  • LIMITED TO 8 PARTICIPANTS! Due to COVID 19 we will be practicing safe social distancing and mask wearing! Bring your favorite mask to show off!

Directions: From Denver take I-70 west to exit 248 - Beaver Brook.  Exit the highway and turn left onto US-40 (Frontage Road) and head west.  Turn left to cross over I-70 on the bridge and turn left on Hyland Drive.  Stay on Hyland Drive as it becomes Beaver Brook Canyon Road.  Once the pavement ends, continue for 1.7 miles to the Clear Creek County Open Space sign on the right. The parking area is .1 miles past this sign.  After the pavement ends the dirt road begins.  In good weather this road should be fine for most vehicles but if the weather is wet or the road is snowy and damp, then you may want to exercise caution and take an AWD or 4WD vehicle. Google Maps.
Investment: $55 per person (non Walk2Connect Members); $45 per person (Walk2Connect Members)
