Hike Habit is cancelled due to snow. We invite you to take a little time to go outside, look around and marvel at the world. The snow changes the shape of things, creates a muffled silence, accentuates every twig that is now holding it’s share of the load. How is this snowstorm a metaphor for your grief? Feel the permanent impermanence of nature.

Stay safe and well.We have traveled a full circle around the sun and are returning to Watershed Park the site of our first Hike Habit 2018. This trail holds magic following Moxlie Creek to its origins. It can be muddy in low spots and hilly as well but is still a good hike for kids and beginners. Meet at the covered shelter on Eastside Street at the Woodland trail, NOT at the parking area on Henderson. Every grief hike begins with an opening circle, an acknowledgement of who is here and who we are carrying in our hearts. Then we walk in silence for 10 minutes. Soon the group morphs and changes, forming small groupings or solitary walkers. We acknowledge that each of us is somewhere in our grief journey and all are welcome. We will stop occasionally on the trail to share or just notice in silence. We will end back at the shelter where we began and have a closing circle.
